AltaCast was formally known as Edcast reborn. You can download AltaCast Standalone 1.1 here.

You will also need the C++ 2010 runtime and the latest Lame_enc.dll file for MP3 support. 

Unzip the Lame .zip archive and paste the Lame_enc.dll file into the Altacast folder on your computer. Usually found:

C:/Program Files (x86)/Altacast

NOTE: You must also check the 'Use Bitrate' box choose “MP3 Lame” as the encoder type and sever type is SHOUTcast. You will also need to remove everything from the “Mountpoint” field.

Click 'OK' to save.
