BUTT (Broadcast Using This Tool) is a simple IceCast v1 compatible tool that takes one audio stream of your soundcard and relays it directly to the server.

When properly set up all you have to do is run Butt then just play the music in an audio player or speak into your microphone without needing any extra interaction with the streaming software.

This is BUTT's main window. Click on "Settings".

This is the window that will appear.

Firstly, you have to set up the server info. Click the "ADD" button under the section "Server".

To find the required information go to the Dashboard of your station on Click on Broadcast settings for the menu below to appear.

Fill in the blanks with this information.

The first thing you should do is to select IceCast.
In the section "Name" you can write whatever you want.
In the section "Address" you have to write the IP address which is at "Host" of your Broadcast link.
Do the same for "Port", "Password" and "Mountpoint" .

Please add the symbol / before the mountpoint as seen on the picture above.
Finally click "ADD".
Now, select the server you just added.

Next, go to Audio settings.

In the section "Channel" select "stereo".
In the section "Codec" select "MP3".
We recommend you to choose a bitrate of 128k, as it is an industry standard quality.

Save the changes you have done.

Go again to the main window of BUTT.
To start streaming click the play button. You should see this:

This is BUTT successfully relaying audio to your station!
