1- SSL CERTIFICATE:
Note: This feature is for Linux only. SSL support does not work on Windows.
You'll need to get an ssl certificate and an ssl key and add both file paths in the config file as follows:
sslcertificatefile=/path/to/your/file.crt (or .pem)
If you wish to use the default SSL port (443) instead of e.g. port 8000, then add the alternateports directive:
To make sure the DNS is linked in the DNAS and directory, also add the following:
- destip=stream.myserver.com (example; i.e. specify officially linked DNS)
If the streampath (mountpoint) is more than just e.g. /stream then you also need to modify the streampath= line accordingly.
SSL stream = https://my.secure.domain.com/radio/2468/radio.mp3
2- FALLBACK STREAM:
If you do not wish to broadcast a defined file when a stream ends or when it gets timed out you could relay another stream. This can be done by adding the streambackupurl instruction, the stream id, and the url you want to relay.
Note that both streams have to be in the same format (e.g. mp3 @ 128 kbps) for it not to impact the advertising management.
