How to broadcast all sounds from your computer?
This section is intended for those who wish to broadcast sound directly from their computer or use professional software and hardware.

The simplest and most accessible way to broadcast what you hear from your speakers is to use the mixer built into the sound card. Thus, you can broadcast from your computer and third-party sites as well as the sound processed by special programs. (including mixed in real time) and the sound from the DJ console. To do this, you need to make sure that you have installed a sound driver that matches your sound card. It can be found on the disk attached to the computer when you purchase it or on the official website of the company that produced your computer / laptop or sound card. If you have a Realtek sound card (most likely, they are most often built into the motherboard), then you have 100% equipment that meets all requirements.

Next, you need to replace the default device from the microphone to the stereo mixer, this is necessary so that all the reproduced sounds from the PC go on the air.

Windows 10 example (in other OS, the actions are almost the same) To start broadcasting all sounds from your PC, you need: on the Windows toolbar at the bottom right, right-click on the volume control icon


In the list that appears, select "Sounds."


In the window that opens, select the default device "Stereo Mixer" (in this case, if you did everything correctly, the stereo mixer will be marked with a green tick), and press the “OK” button.


Then you need to refresh the page with the translator and click the “Broadcast” button - all sounds from your computer that can be heard in the speakers and headphones (including notifications of instant messengers) will be aired.

To avoid the background on the air, use headphones.
Broadcast from PC using special software
PC broadcast is a service with which you can capture all sounds from a computer and broadcast them via Icecast protocol using specialized broadcast programs.
To do this, use the Icecast connection settings on the broadcast page:
