    5 == Goals ==
     5== What is live audio streaming? ==
    66
    7 Unlike video streaming (in which we've committed to just one simultaneous stream and will have a single video stream team), the goal with audio streaming is to let anyone in the forum with a computer and a microphone live stream their event. We will then have a web page that will dynamically list all available audio streams.
     7Live audio streaming means transmitting, as it is happening, audio from the US Social Forum over the Internet so people who are unable to attend the forum can listen to what is happening here.
    88
    9 As with video stream, our goals are free/open source software and maximum availability.
     9== Where do I watch? ==
    1010
    11 == How it might work ==
     11You can watch on the USSF Radio page: http://organize.ussf2010.org/live/audio
    1212
    13 Ideally, we would use a web plugin so participants could go to their workshop page on the http://organize.ussf2010.org/ and click a audio stream button. That would cause the plugin to ask permission to use the laptop microphone, ask for a stream name (and maybe language) and away it would go.
     13== Can I stream? ==
    1414
    15 This is possible with video streaming and flash - but that's not free :(. So, this might not be possible.
     15Yes!  Everyone participating in the USSF is encourage to create a live stream.
    1616
    17 Alternatively, we'd need simple directions for programs to download (depending on OS) and how to configured them (e.g. using VLC)
     17== How do I stream? ==
    1818
    19 == Software ==
     19Below are directions for Linux, Windows, and Macintosh users.

    21 We have access to three ice cast servers. They are:
     21== Linux ==
    2222
    23  * a.icecast.ussf2010.org (sankara.mayfirst.org): user: source password: streamussf
    24  * b.icecast.ussf2010.org (toussaint.mayfirst.org): user: source password: streamussf
    25  * c.icecast.ussf2010.org (radio.indybay.org): stream password: contact Mark B
     23If you are running linux or unix, we recommend using the darkice program.
    2624
    27 Please use a.icecast.ussf2010.org for now. We will hopefully be doing some kind of load balancing and relaying between them eventually.
     25On Debian based systems (including Ubuntu) you can use the package manager to install the darkice package. From the command line, it would be:
    2826
    29 == Examples ==
     27{{{
     28sudo aptitude install darkice
     29}}}
    3030
    31 A similar setup was used in Cochabamba and very well documented here - unfortunately it's only available in french and spanish: http://wiki.cmpcc.org.bo/index.php/Tutorial_difusión_en_vivo
     31Next, download the sample darkice.cfg file available at the bottom of this page.
     32
     33Read and edit the file as needed (directions are comments at the top of the file).
     34
     35Then, plug in a mic to your computer and type:
     36
     37{{{
     38darkice -c path/to/darkice.cfg
     39}}}

     41You should see your stream at:
