How easy is it to use IceCast to stream?

Using IceCast to stream could not be easier and can be done using a few different pieces of software. The most common software used is Winamp which can be installed on any PC with a working internet connection. Once you have that its as simple as plugging in some information into it and starting it up. If you dont have a Windows PC there are options available for Linux and Mac so don't worry. 

If you are going with the more professional stream you can use some very nice automated software to stream such as SAM Broadcaster or SAM Vibe by the company Spacial.
