Here are the settings I use when streaming.  These settings have come as a result of hours of consultation with various webcast academy people - both interns and teachers.  I can't thank you all enough. (See my earlier blogs for names.)

I have listed each in the order I begin:

  • Skype
    • Microphone - mic
    • Speakers - sound card
  • Audacity
    • playback - sound card
    • recording - sound card
    • channels - 1 (mono)
    •  gray box - stereo mix
      • (Note: sometimes when opening Skype, the gray box is not available for use.  I then close Audacity and reopen.  It's usually there.  Remember, it's free.)
  • Audio Repeater
    • Wave In - Mic
    • Wave Out - Sound Card
    • Sample Rate - 44100
    • Total Buffer - 100
    • Bits - 22
    • Buffer - 16
    • Channel - Stereo
    • Priority - High
      • Someday I will learn what all this means.  Right now, I just follow directions.
  • Volume (This is the little speaker on the taskbar at the bottom of your screen.)
    • Under Options
      • Playback - Sound card
      • Recording - Mic
      • Be sure to check the stereo mix box!
  • Simplecast
    • Encoders
      • + Plug In MP3 & MP3 Pro
      • Choose format - 64 KB/44,100
      • Server IP - copy from WebcastAcademy.net/info for your sandbox choice
      • Server Port - copy from same as above
      • Password - get from Jeff through Skype
      • Username - get from Jeff through Skype
      • Station Name - insert choice
    • Config
      • Capture sound from sound card

That's it.  Very crazy.  Next I'll talk about adding video for those daring enough.

Please note:  This works for me and my pc.  I give no guarantees about it working for you.  But good luck.  It really can be done!
