14.1 > Audio > darkice (1.2)

DarkIce is a live audio streamer. It records audio from an audio
interface (e.g. sound card), encodes it and sends it to a streaming

DarkIce can record from:

- OSS audio devices
- ALSA audio devices
- Solaris audio interface
- Jack sources
- uLaw audio input through a serial interface
- CoreAudio (branch darkice-macosx)

DarkIce can encode in the following formats:

- MP3 - using the lame library
- MP2 - using the twolame library
- Ogg Vorbis
- Opus
- AAC - using the faac library
- AAC HEv2 - using libaacplus library

DarkIce can send the encoded stream to the following streaming servers:

- ShoutCast
- IceCast 1.3.x and 2.x
- Darwin Streaming Server
- archive the encoded audio in files

This package optionally uses POSIX filesystem capabilities to execute with
elevated privileges (required for realtime audio processing). This
may be considered a security/stability risk. Please read for more information. To enable
capabilities, pass SETCAP=yes to the script.

Optional dependencies: lame, opus, faac, twolame, jack-audio-connection-kit,
