Updated SSL Certificates on Site Players

I updated the ssl certificates with my site certificates so you can stream from the website using my embedded players. I updated my overall site certificates earlier this month but failed to point stunnel the secure utility I use to keep you safe to my new certificate. Now all my embedded players here on will play in your secure browsers and applications.

Find a button anywhere on my site like the one above and hit play to listen to my stream. The player above plays at 320kbps. There are several like this at various bit rates on the sidebars of my site that will play 192kbps, 128kbps or 64kbps. You can choose a ShoutCast or IceCast then they will stream securely in your browser or audio application.

If you want to drop the url in your stream use one of these secure URL’s in your favorite audio streaming application:

ShoutCast secure:

IceCast secure:

Now if your application or browser doesn't handle ssl you can use the following:



System Updates Stream

A few updates where due in the music stream so decided to update the Windows 2019 data center OS that hosts the music application Sam Broadcaster and the music stream relay OS on Linux Fedora that hosts IceCast and ShoutCast streams with the stunnel as well.

So far everything looks good and will be up in about 15 minutes if not sooner from the time of this post.

The Music Stream Continues

Just like that back up and streaming music over the internet from my upstairs home computer room to wherever you are ! The w2019 server with streaming software is up that then relays to my Linux Fedora 34 system with ShoutCast and Icecast.

This is the place the music happens and you can keep up with what’s playing real time:

My music console where I input the sounds back up after reboot of W2019 Data Center OS.
Confirming relay software starts after reboot of system following system patches on Linux Fedora 34 system OS.

As noted on I updated my Linux web server, my Snakeice House of Beats W2019 Data Center music streaming server, my Linux IceCast and ShoutCast streaming servers with the latest security patches. I also updated several other backgrounds servers.

I also updated the CMS WordPress to the latest version along with the plugins and themes.

Added some new songs to the rotation and just letting the music ring out.

Last Sunday of 2021 Snakeice House of Beats Afternoon Early Evening Sounds

The last set of music for a Sunday in 2021 and it will be of course be multi-layered with different genres an beats of various eras. This is the “Snakeice House of Beats Gumbo Mix” a set of rock and roll, old school R&B, into Reggae, pop music, for upbeat sections and jazz, soul, blues, even country for some mellow moments. 

Going to have something to work out (what I will initially be doing) to or just bop around the house with plus some laid-back tunes. I will mix in quite a bit on the fly as I hear certain songs and think of something that fits just right with them.
