Bug#200576: ITP: oddcast -- encodes and transmits audio to a streaming server

Package: wnpp
Version: unavailable; reported 2003-07-08
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : oddcast
  Version         : 2.0.1
  Upstream Author : oddsock <oddsock@oddsock.org>
* URL             : http://www.oddsock.org/tools/oddcastv2_xmms/
* License         : GPL
  Description     : XMMS plugin for broadcasting

From the website:

 The wxWindow UI standalone program which is responsible for taking the raw
 audio data (fed to it via the effect plugin) and converting it to the
 appropriate compressed audio codec (MP3 and Vorbis supported) and then
 sending it out to the appropriate streaming server (Shoutcast,
 Icecast1.x, Icecast2 supported). "oddcastv2" will also perform things
 like resampling (going from 44kHz to 22kHz or to 32kHz) as well as
 channel down/upmixing (converting from Mono to Stereo and vice-versa).

Obviously, this is not a very good long description for the final
result.  I am open to suggestions.

This will be a dependancy of the xmms-oddcast package, which will be ITP'd
shortly.  Upstream distributes these pieces of software in one tarball;
they may or may not be built from a single source package in the end.  As
I understand it, both pieces should be usable seperately.

The upstream author of this software has been contacted; I am waiting
for a reply before beginning serious packaging work.
