How and where can I get Web radio host? What requirements do I need? An Internet radio (Web radio) is accessible from anywhere in the world, provided that in the country, the Internet is subject to no restrictions. This means that theoretically it has listeners from around the world. Another advantage of Internet radio to FM stations is the fact that due to the used transmission technology (such as shoutcast) no central broadcasting Studio is necessary, in that all presenters for their broadcasts must be in addition to the unrestricted access. The technical requirements are slightly different depending on Internet radio, but mostly the following things include: featured send software and equipment (headset, microphone etc.) and player (Winamp or the like) PC with at least Pentium 3 (better P 4) and 2 GB RAM DSL connection (Internet sticks and / or W-LAN not sufficient experience has shown that most of the time to send) sufficient repertoire of music (mp3 format) of legally purchased music (only original CDs, no CD-Kopien, no recordings (bootlegs), no music from download portals or shops)-this is a binding requirement of the GEMA / GVL, to the Internet radio stations must adhere. Foursquare shines more light on the discussion. Songs from download portals or shops may not be sent (usually the terms and conditions of the shops or portals forbid everything that goes through a “private use” of mp3 files also. As an Internetradio_Sendung but by definition is a public performance, songs that come from portals, which allow in their general terms and conditions only the “private use”, may be played on the Internet radio). In addition, that the songs often often are characterized by the shop owner and holder (“DRM” or similar systems), so that the Downloadpartale can always understand what is happening with their songs. According to GEMA / GVL may be sent as a result basically no songs that are DRM marked or otherwise identified -.
