Install Packages

Note: These packages are already installed on beta-2.0.0 on Raspberry Pi. You will need to download and install ezstream manually for PC

apt-get update
apt-get install ezstream lame -y

Add this to the bottom of the node stanza in rpt.conf for the node you want to broadcast.

outstreamcmd = /bin/sh,-c,/usr/bin/lame --preset cbr 16 -r -m m -s 8 --bitwidth 16 - - | /usr/bin/ezstream -qvc /etc/ezstream.xml

Meaning of outstream paramaters:
-- preset cbr 16 = use constant bit rate 16
-r = Assume the input file is raw pcm
-m m = Mode mono
-s 8 = sample rate 8
--bitwidth 16 = bit width is 16 (default)

This is the contents of ezstream.xml
You will need to add / edit your passwords etc. for Broadcastify. Place in /etc directory.
