Hi Everyone! We all want Spreaker to become an easy way for everyone for sharing his thoughts with a couple of clicks. But at the same time we don’t want this to sacrifice the power of creating something very professional. In the last few months we have been receiving a lot of requests about the possibility of using Spreaker with external broadcasting software. So we’ve listened and created a solution: we call it Tube. Because that’s just what it is: a pipe enabling you to connect your desktop software with our servers. This will open up a range of new possibilities:
- Live DJ using your favorite mixing program (and at the same time do voiceovers)
- Use external radio broadcasting and scheduling software
- Do high quality LIVE broadcasting from concerts, conferences, etc…
As we see it, Tube will become one of our premium features. However, during this initial test phase, we have decided to leave it open so anyone having an account on Spreaker can play with it! So why don’t you give it a try? We have created a Tutorial for using Spreaker with Nicecast on Mac OS. Nicecast allows you to capture audio from other sources and do real-time voiceovers: this basically allows you to stream from Any application on Mac, including VirtualDJ, Traktor, iTunes, Skype and many others. More tutorials for other software/platforms will follow soon (though I am sure that techies among you will be able to make this work flawlessly with their own system). You can find the full tutorial here.
