Zenon-Media has developed an ASIO driver able to connect directly to a SHOUTcast or Icecast2 server.
So any Zenon-Media software application is able to see virtual soundcards to play directly to the SHOUTcast/Icecast server. No external piece of software, such as Oddcast or Winamp, is requested.
The driver handles the SHOUTcast format encoding on the fly. Because it does not depend on the original file format, the stream can be re-encoded in any stream format and at any bitrate.
The SHOUTcast channel will be listed in the device list like any ASIO driver. So in the software application, users just select the SHOUTcast driver to address the audio output to the SHOUTcast server.
