Operating System: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10

Nullsoft Shoutcast Source DSP Plug-in for Winamp: Download

Internet Access: Although you can broadcast with a 56k internet connection, a DSL or Cable connection to the internet is recommended for optimal performance.

If you already have the above requirements, please continue in your reading. If you do not have the above requirements, you may read on but you may experience problems other than those addressed in this tutorial.

Lets begin. If you have not already done so, install Nullsoft Winamp and familiarize yourself with it. Also install the Shoutcast DSP Plug-in - you should not have to close Winamp to perform the installation.

Begin by loading Nullsoft Winamp. Right click on the title bar that reads "Winamp" and mouse over the menu labeled "Options" then click on the option labeled "Preferences". You may also press CTRL-P on your keyboard. [See the picture]
