gosh, remember when IceCast was a thing, and you could just stream music to your friends
@aurynn what’s stopping us doing it now? aside from my powerful desire to just loop troll songs I guess
@fincham no one would listen
I don’t even think I have anything which could talk to an icecast server
@fincham @aurynn for all your other listening needs, there’s a list of supported players. And it looks like some web browsers did support playing from Icecast mount points directly, back in 2016 (possibly removed again now, like gopher/ftp/etc).
(As speculated there are also some JS audio plays that had/have Icecast support.)
