Relaying in Icecast

IceCast has two relay modes – a master relay, and a mountpoint relay. The master relay will relay an entire IceCast server, but since this is a highly advanced process and requires extra authentication, we are unable to provide technical support for this.

To relay a single stream using IceCast, head to the Settings page in CentovaCast, found on the left hand side navigation bar. Then, click on the ‘Mountpoint Relaying’ tab.

Simply enter the stream server, port, and mount point that you wish to relay on your station. ‘Local mount point’ specifies which mount point on your station that the relayed broadcast will play through. ‘Stream username’ and ‘Stream password’ are generally not required for relay. Make sure that ‘Relay metadata’ is set to ‘Yes’.

Once you’re finished, click ‘Update’ at the bottom of the page, and restart/reload your server using the button on the left hand side navigation pane, under ‘Server’.

That’s it! Your station will now be relaying the specified stream and mount point. If you run into any issues with this process, please don’t hesitate to contact our support team, who will be happy to help.

More information on mountpoint relaying for IceCast services can be found in CentovaCast’s documentation, here: Mountpoint Relaying (IceCast)
