Today, we’ve released a major update to Nicecast, our essential tool for live audio broadcasting on OS X. Version 1.8 offers major new features alongside under-the-hood changes and bug fixes. To start, we’ve made setup easier than ever, with support for UPnP and NAT-PMP enabled routers, including most new LinkSys, Netgear, and Apple devices. If your router supports one of these protocols, the network will be automatically configured to allow outside access. The new version also provides enhanced control and security, with the ability to password-protect the stream and even kick listeners.
Other features in Nicecast 1.8 include the new Application Mixer Effects plugin, allowing for audio to be pulled from multiple applications at once, as well as the new System Audio input source, which optionally allows all audio from your Mac to be broadcast. All this and more is available in Nicecast 1.8, free for all previously registered users, so download it now.
