Right, this has been driving me mental for a couple of days now and I'm
pretty sure I'm missing something simple.
I'm trying to set up my Ubuntu 12.04 laptop as an MP3 audio source for an
Icecast 2 server. The Icecast server is configured and working well with
Nicecast from my Mac. The combination of PulseAudio and DarkIce on the
Ubuntu machine however, isn't quite right. I can successfully stream from
the built-in microphone on the laptop to Icecast, but I'm completely at a
loss as to how to get the audio from Banshee or Rhythmbox (or any
other application for that matter) to stream to the Icecast server.
The input section of my darkice.cfg is:
device = plughw:0,0
paSourceName = alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo
sampleRate = 44100
bitsPerSample = 16
channel = 2
Changing the device to 'default' doesn't make any difference, and darkice
still runs. Changing it to plughw0,[1-3] throws an error:
"DarkIce.cpp:1187: can't open connector ". I've included links to the
outputs of 'arecord -L' and 'pactl list' respectively here in case they may
shed any light:
Any help would be welcome, I'm tearing my hair out over this at this stage.
