I waited a while to jump in on this thread because I was hoping that someone had found something that I had not. We faced the same situation: Rivendell automation but needed audio processing and encoding. Keeping the entire audio chain digital (no sound cards or analog conversions) was not possible with Linux alone.

We use a combination of Omnia Z/IPStream X/2, Orban Optimod-PCn, and StreamS Live Encoder to process and encode. All of which run only on Windows. Livewire proved to be the best way to link the Linux Rivendell to the Windows audio processing and encoding.  I would love to be able to keep the entire audio chain in Linux but I couldn’t find a way to do it.

Thanks, Fred. I forgot about that one. No experience with it but will try it. It's probably not worth the cost of the license using Livewire to feed the audio to it, true? I am making a stand alone CentOS/Riv box to play with. I'l let you know if I have more questions.

I'm sure this topic has come up before... We are changing our web streaming provider and I was hoping to use a Linux computer for it on our end.We already use Linux with Rivendell automation. The new provider does handle Icecast, Shoutcast and windows types but quoted me for HEAAC and they provide windows software. I haven't gotten a technical answer from them so far regarding the Linux option and do not have experience setting this up. Any suggestions as to what I can use to encode on my end that works with Linux and would be compatible with their server?


If it’s IceCast, then GlassCoder should work fine. https://github.com/ElvishArtisan/GlassCoder


If you’ve got a stock CentOS Rivendell setup, you can install it by doing (as root):


yum install glasscoder glasscoder-gui


Then do ‘man 1 glasscoder’ to get started.
