Shoutcast is a streaming audio system for Windows and Unix platforms. At the center of the system is the SHOUTcast Distributed Network Audio Server (DNAS). The DNAS is responsible for accepting a broadcast feed from Winamp and the SHOUTcast Source DSP plug-in, and repeating the broadcast to listeners connected to this SHOUTcast DNAS. Once your source content is being fed into the SHOUTcast DNAS, it will also list itself with the SHOUTcast directory so listeners can locate your broadcast.
pgpool is a connection pool server for PostgreSQL. pgpool runs between PostgreSQL's clients (front ends) and servers (back ends). A PostgreSQL client can connect to pgpool as if it were a standard PostgreSQL server. pgpool caches the connection to a PostgreSQL server to reduce the overhead to establish the connection to it. Also, pgpool can use two PostgreSQL servers for fail over. If the first server goes down, pgpool will automatically switch to the secondary server. Moreover, pgpool supports scheduled switch over.
very cool application !
I was using cplay until I found that out. And the ability to edit the tags is so cool and easy to use !
