Also check your "encoder password." It is the same as your main password with Wunderground.

When it can't connect to the server it's usually your Mountpoint entry being incorrect.

/"your WU photo page ID"/"your town".mp3

/nhweatherdata/Lisbon.mp3  as an example.

Make sure all the cases match. I had OPWX when it should have been OPwx and it wouldn't connect.


Thanks for the tip. It was a case problem.  :oops:

All working now!

Well, thought it was working. :(

It is connecting to the server, but for some reason, the software has dropped the connection with the sound card, so nothing is going out.
Back to the drawing board. :(

Is anyone able to hear my feed?

I know I can't hear it. :(

No, just dead air...

When you LEFT-click on the graph meter at the top of the Oddcast screen, are you seeing the decibel meter change?

Have you checked the volume for the "Line In" feed?
On edit:  Never mind... it looks like the line in feed just affects the speakers and not the outgoing feed...

Have you tried reselecting the "Live Recording" options in the middle?

I've tried everything. It shows the stream going out, but can't hear a thing from the stream site. I'm at a loss.

Well, whatever you've done... it's working now...  :D

I've added you to my list...
http://www.roanokevalleyweather.com/noaawxradio.htm

Time for you to get some zzzzzz's...  8)

Must be just a tiny bit of snow in your broadcast, as I'm hearing a little noise in the transmission.

I've noticed that the New Hampshire feeds talk a little slower than the rest of us...  :roll:

Yeah, don't know what the heck I did to get it working.  :?
It's going out now though, so I can live with that!  :wink:

Great list. I emailed NOAA about updating their site but haven't heard back.

Thanks.  

Lonnie just got his Greenville, SC feed added...
http://www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/streamaudio.htm
... so there is hope.  I have had a couple hits from NOAA follow Lonnie's page to my links page, so at least one NOAA person knows we exist.

Lonnie told me that NOAA will be counting the click-throughs to his site for a month or so, and if the count is sufficient, they might add his feed to Greenville's local weather page.

Well crap. Who did he email? I emailed Arthur Kraus. I even emailed the OAX webmaster.

I emailed Arthur Kraus. Below is his response to my original email to him explaining what I had done.

Lonnie,

Thanks for writing, and for streaming our Greenville/Paris Mtn station!

I will be happy to add it to our streaming audio website.  If it's all right with you, I will also share the information with our office in Greenville/Spartanburg, unless you already have done so.

Also, I would think that your local NWS would be happy to give you a link unless they are already streaming. After Arthur Kraus e-mailed KGSP I sent an e-mail of my own to them and below was their response.

Lonnie

Thank you.  I got an e-mail from Art the other day and replied back to him.  I should have cc'd it to you as well.  Basically, I have wanted an internet stream of the Paris Mtn. transmitter (or any transmitter for that matter) for a long time, so I thank you for doing this.  I have also forwarded this information to the supervisors here and they are very pleased.

I have also forwarded this information to our webmaster so that he can put the link our main web page http://weather.gov/gsp.  I have certainly given my approval because it's a great idea, so I'll make sure that the next time I see him, he knows about the link.

Hey guys. Any tips on improving network performance when running the stream? Had to take the stream down, as it was playing hell with the print server on the router. Took the wife over 30 minutes to print out one page. Needless to say, she was not a happy camper in the least. Using a D-Link 704-P router on a 100 Mbps network. Without the stream, everything runs smooth as silk. :(

I haven't noticed any change in my network's performance when I do the streaming.  I'm currently using a Linksys router, and I have a network printer plugged directly into a print server.  

What kind of CPU usage do you have when Oddcast is running?

Well, I wonder if it's because there's already a stream (non-functioning for months now) for Omaha, Neb.

With oddcast running, I see spikes of about 58% CPU usage with 0.53% network useage. Without oddcast, the highest CPU usage I see is around 20% and a network useage of 0.09%.

This is on a slower P3 933Mhz machine running XP Pro. Tried it on the faster 3.2 Ghz P4 machine, without any difference in the network performance. So, it appears to be more network related then machine related.

On either machine, the network print functions still crap out to slower then slow.

Which oddcast version? I'm using April 16, 2006... CPU is between 0-2%

I really don't think it is a CPU usage issue as much as it is a network issue, since printing on any machine in the network is ground to almost a halt.

Just seems like it's behaving oddly... I wonder if you have something which is continually scanning the stream... anti-virus maybe?

I would email him back and explain that the present stream from Omaha hasn't worked for months and that you have one that works and works well and ask him if he would be interested in changing the link. He seems like a very nice person to work with. Nicer than the locals here in Greenville.

If that is the case, wouldn't it simply slow down that machine?

I got an e-mail from a meteorologist at KGSP today explaining that all the computers there use the Quictime player. If this is the only player they have installed on their computers how would they listen to my stream through WU. I tried to listen to the stream on one of my computers with Quictime and it said "no video detected".
