Communicast Radio


Communicast radio is a php frontend to Music Player Daemon. Communicast's php frontend is not a conventional frontend to MPD however, it is intended as a medium for which many users/listeners can make a collective decision on what to listen to. This is achieved by creating an environment where the playlist is determined by listeners who vote, and an administrator who has very limited power. The target output for communicast is streaming the output from mpd to an online radio streamer, such as SHOUTcast or Icecast.
