    Sampling Audio on PC then streaming in realtime

    Hey guys,

    Although there is built in internet radio functionality on SqueezeNetwork I struggle to use it as I have no broadband where I live, and use a 3G (UMTS) connection. This is erratic and expensive (ú/$ per Mb). So it occurred to me if I plugged a radio in to my PC, I could play audio from the radio in to the PC, and somehow sample the audio and then stream it through my Squeeze boxes / receivers (shortly transporter too!), allowing me to listen to radio across my network.

    I think that the only piece of kit I would need (aside from the radio) is a bit of software to sample and then stream. I have done a brief internet search and not really come up with much, so I wondered if someone might know how to do this, or more specifically what software I should use.

    Thanks for your time, I look forward to your response.

    You can use a TV Tuner card - many support FM or you can use Griifin RadioShark2 http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/radioshark2

    There is a plugin to enable tuning and playing RadioShark through SC for Windows and Linux

    Wave Input Plugin

    Assuming your PC has a soundcard, the audio can be intercepted by the Wave Input Plugin. There can be problems with it - doesn't work in all situations but worth a try.

    Lots of info at:

    Hope that helps.

    You could give No23Live a try. It's an audio streaming encoder for Windows available for free at www.no23.de. It streams all audio signals from your PC through a network.

    cheers

    Thanks everybody for their responses - the power of forums never ceases to amaze me.

    I have ordered a Radio Shark 2 as this seems to be a neat / comprensive solution.

    Thank you again!
