Trouble with Darkice on Raspberry Pi 3

Thu Apr 12, 2018 5:15 pm

Hello,

I'm pretty new to the whole Raspberry thing and trying to get an Icecast server running from my Pi. I want to use my soundcard as a sound source. So far I got the server up and running but I can't start up Icecast. Whenever I try running it with the "icecast" command or the "sudo icecast" command I get the following message:

Code: Select all

DarkIce: DarkIce.ccpp:1187: can't open connector [0]
I spent many hours searching for a possible solution online but couldn't find anything. Hopefully there's some experts on this forum.

Here is my icecast.xml file:

Code: Select all

<icecast>
    <!-- location and admin are two arbitrary strings that are e.g. visible
         on the server info page of the icecast web interface
         (server_version.xsl). -->
    <location>Earth</location>
    <admin>[email protected]</admin>

    <!-- IMPORTANT!
         Especially for inexperienced users:
         Start out by ONLY changing all passwords and restarting Icecast.
         For detailed setup instructions please refer to the documentation.
         It's also available here: http://icecast.org/docs/
    -->

        <!-- If enabled, this will provide a burst of data when a client 
             first connects, thereby significantly reducing the startup 
             time for listeners that do substantial buffering. However,
             it also significantly increases latency between the source
             client and listening client.  For low-latency setups, you
             might want to disable this. -->

And here's the darkice.cfg:

bitrate         = 256       # bitrate

port            = 8001      # port for IceCast2 access
password        = ****    # source password to the IceCast2 server
mountPoint	= mystream.mp3
name            = mystream
Does anybody know where the problem might be? Maybe with the soundcard? "aplay -l" gives the following results:

Code: Select all

I appreciate any help!
