What shoutcast affects

This module will install and configure a shoutcast server, systemd unit files, configuration and various streams.

Setup Requirements

To get started you need to have at least one Authhash from

Beginning with shoutcast

Declare the top-level shoutcast class to set up software and define a stream:

class { 'shoutcast':
  adminpasssword => 'bogusadminpassword',
  password  => 'boguspassword'

shoutcast::stream { 'stationname':
  streamid => 1,
  authhash => 'xyxyxyxyxyxyxy'


All of the parameters mentioned above are required. For each there is an optional config parameter that will allow you to inject arbitary configuration in to the configuration file at that point eg...

class { 'shoutcast':
  adminpasssword => 'bogusadminpassword',
  password  => 'boguspassword',
  config => {
    'portbase' => '5555'

shoutcast::stream { 'stationname':
  streamid => 1,
  authhash => 'xyxyxyxyxyxyxy',
  config => {
    'streamintrofile' => '/path/to/intro/file.mp3'


Although the binary provided by shoutcast is a universal binary there is no guarantee that it will run on your system. By default this module will install the 64 bit executable. There is a 32 bit executable but you have to provide the url yourself.

This module does not handle software upgrades. In order to upgrade the software you must rm /opt/shoutcast before re-applying the module to your system.
