Well, I couldn't stand letting a thread go dormant for almost 5 years.
Just thought I'd mention to anyone who is streaming the weather radio feed (or tried it but couldn't get Oddcast or Edcast to work) that ScannerCast
can also be used to do the uploads to the WU audiostream rather than Oddcast/Edcast.
Last time I checked, the download instructions for Edcast on the WU site were out of date, and I think it uses a buggy version of the lame encoder anyway (resulting in the configured bitrate being ignored by the software).
I just tried ScannerCast with my Win7 x64 system and it works. Edcast wouldn't work because it couldn't find my sound card on this system.
In looking at the weather radio feed listing
, there is at least one other feed already being uploaded this way, so I can't take credit for being the first to try it. Seems to work fine there too.
You'll want to have the hardware set up first, including plugging in the input to the Line In jack. When configuring the scanner model, select "Audio Only". If you're familiar with Edcast, or can extrapolate from the WU Edcast instructions, you'll probably figure out the rest.
BTW... for our purposes, ignore any references in the software to "Radio Reference". Different ball of "whacks".
