Icecast Server/Installing latest version (official Xiph repositories)

From XiphWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Xiph.org provides the latest version of Icecast packaged for various distributions. The packages are built centrally from one set of sources on the openSUSE OpenBuildService instance in the Multimedia/Xiph.org project.

Packages are usually available on release day. Packaging follows closely the original distro packaging to stay a seamless drop in replacement. The packages are meant for users who need the latest version of Icecast or HTTPS support, while their distribution doesn't provide it.

Debian and Ubuntu (in all its flavors)

It takes 4 simple commands to install the latest Icecast version on a deb based distro.

Add the repository

This expects that you have sudo installed, if not, open a root shell and run the echo command directly.

Copy paste the command for your distribution release and make sure that it's executed as one line!

Import the Multimedia signing key

You need to add the openSUSE OBS Multimedia signing key as a trusted key to your system.

There are many ways to verify this key, e.g. by a simple web search.

After downloading the key, you can run this command to verify your copy:

gpg multimedia-obs.key

It should yield:

pub   rsa2048 2017-11-21 [SC] [expires: 2020-01-30]
      0E313DB7936B4E76E720065B77EC2301F23C6AA3
uid   multimedia OBS Project <multimedia@build.opensuse.org>

Then you can add the key to your system's Trusted Keys using:

sudo apt-key add multimedia-obs.key

The simplest way (but not very secure, since you're not checking the key) is to add the key with one command line:

wget -qO - http://icecast.org/multimedia-obs.key | sudo apt-key add -

Update repository index

sudo apt-get update

Install Icecast

sudo apt-get install icecast2
