This is a
playground to test code. It runs a full
Node.js environment and already has all of
npm’s 400,000 packages pre-installed, including
webcast-osx-audio with all
npm packages installed. Try it out:
This service is provided by RunKit and is not affiliated with npm, Inc or the package authors.
Streams Mac OS X audio input an mp3 webcast.
To install the module for use in your projects:
npm install -g webcast-osx-audio
Global installation exposes the
webcast-audio command to your shell. Running
this command will start listening to input, and connect to a local Chromecast
with a stream of that input.
To direct system audio, use Soundflower.
$ webcast-audio --help Usage: webcast-audio [options] Options: -p, --port The port that the streaming server will listen on.  -b, --bitrate The bitrate for the mp3 encoded stream.  -m, --mono The stream defaults to stereo. Set to mono with this flag. -s, --samplerate The sample rate for the mp3 encoded stream.  -u, --url The relative URL that the stream will be hosted at. [stream.mp3] -i, --iface The public interface that should be reported. Selects the first interface by default. --version print version and exit
Feel free to send pull requests! I'm not picky, but would like the following:
Uses latest osx-audio
Rewrites stream handling, fixes issues with a wrong interface being selected, and fixes the
--iface option causing an error.
Handles piping of lame audio differently, to avoid some skipping.
Updates osx-audio dependency.
First release. Splits from chromecast-osx-audio.
