an easy and instant media streaming tool
DeeFuzzer is a new light and instant software made for streaming audio and video over internet. It is dedicated to people who wants to create playlisted web radios or web TVs with rich media contents including some metadata.
Here are the main features of the deefuzzer:
MP3 and OGG (audio & video) file streaming over internet (Icecast)
Full metadata encapsulation and management
RSS podcast generator (current tracks and playlists)
M3U playlist generator
Recursive, random (shuffled) or pre-defined playlists
Multi-threaded architecture : multiple station streaming with one config file
Auto Twitter posting of the current playing and new tracks
Jingling between main tracks
OSC controller : control the main functions from a distant terminal
Station relaying : stream other stations like LIVE sessions !
Very light and optimized streaming process
It is neccessary to provide a config file which sets all needed parameters Please see example/myfuzz.xml for an example.
Please first install libshout3 and liblo from source OR libshout3-dev and liblo-dev from your own distribution package manager.
Now, the easiest way to install the DeeFuzzer from a shell:
sudo pip install deefuzzer
sudo easy_install deefuzzer
To install the DeeFuzzer from sources, go to the main deefuzzer app directory, for example:
sudo python setup.py install

This software is licensed as described in the file LICENSE, which you should have received as part of this distribution. The terms are also available at http://svn.parisson.org/deefuzzer/DeeFuzzerLicense
Usage : deefuzzer CONFIGFILE
where CONFIGFILE is the path for a XML config file. For example:
To make the deefuzzer act as a deamon, just play it in the background:
deefuzzer example/deefuzzer.xml &
Note that you must edit the config file with right parameters before playing. You can find an example for a draft XML file in the directory “example/” of this application (maybe in /usr/share/deefuzzer/example/ if installed with the help of install.py)
Since 0.3, deefuzzer doesn’t print anything into the shell, then a right <log> parameter is needed in the XML config file.
BE CAREFULL : at the moment, the multi-threaded implementation of deefuzzer instances avoids shutting down the streams with CTRL+C… You have to kill them manually, after a CTRL+Z, making this:
pkill -9 deefuzzer
See example/deefuzz_doc.xml in a text editor. The inline comments should help you to configure your stations.
We can now control some functions of the deefuzzer with external commands coming from an OSC client. These are accessible only if the “control” tag is set up in the config file (see example/deefuzzer.xml again…).
This work is inspired by the great - C coded - Oddsock’s streaming program : Ezstream. Since I needed to patch it in order to modify the playlist (randomize for example) and make external batch tools to create multiple channels, I decided to rewrite it from scratch in python.
Some parts of this work are also taken from another Parisson’s project : Telemeta (see http://telemeta.org).
