ShoutCast recently started offering a free HTML5 radio player to broadcasters in an effort to make it even easier for them to make their streams accessible to listeners using web browers. The offer is available to so called Revenue Partners and all other broadcasters. The announcement goes as follows…
Free HTML5 player for broadcasters who register their station with SHOUTcast!
SHOUTcast Revenue Partner stations, and any stations who apply can get access to our new, FREE, html5 Player. You can embed this player in your website, or any website, just by adding a few lines of code.
Here’s how you do it:
Step 1: Register your SHOUTcast station on http://shoutcast.com/BroadcastNow
Step 2: Once your application is approved, you’ll be given a login to our SHOUTcast control panel (http://rmo.shoutcast.com)
Step 3: At the top of your control panel, you’ll see a link to your HTML5 player creation page. Click on this link.
Step 4: Scroll to the bottom of the create page. Here you’ll find two sections. The left section is to personalize the HTML player according to your preferences. The right section shows a preview of what your player will look like.
Step 5: Once you finished customizing, copy the HTML code. You’ll see your customized snippet of code on the bottom of the first section marked ‘Code (copy & paste)’
