A self-hosted web radio management suite, including turnkey installer tools for the full radio software stack and a modern, easy-to-use web app to manage your stations.
AzuraCast is a self-hosted, all-in-one web radio management suite. Using its easy installer and powerful but intuitive web interface, you can start up a fully working web radio station in a few quick minutes.
AzuraCast is currently in beta. Many web radio stations already run AzuraCast, but keeping your server up-to-date with the latest code from the GitHub repository is strongly recommended for security, bug fixes and new feature releases. It's unlikely, but updates may result in unexpected issues or data loss, so always make sure to keep your station's media files backed up in a second location.
To install AzuraCast, you should have a basic understanding of the Linux shell terminal. Once installed, every aspect of your radio station can be managed via AzuraCast's web interface.
Follow our installation guide for instructions on how to install AzuraCast on your own server.
AzuraCast will automatically retrieve and install these components for you:
For x86/x64 installations, SHOUTcast 2 DNAS can also be used as a broadcasting frontend. SHOUTcast is non-free software and does not come bundled with AzuraCast, but can be installed via the administration panel after AzuraCast has been installed.
Once installed and running, AzuraCast exposes an API that allows you to monitor and interact with your stations. Documentation about this API and its endpoints are available on the AzuraCast API Documentation.
AzuraCast is licensed under the Apache license, version 2.0. This project is free and open-source software, and pull requests are always welcome.
