Bindings for libshout 2

Project description


python-shout is a fork of the original shout-python, a set of bindings for libshout 2.

python-shout allows you to act as a source for icecast 1 and 2, and shoutcast. This module includes inline documentation, or see the included for a demonstration of its usage.


This version supports both Python 2 and Python 3

For libshout <= 2.2.2, use python-shout==0.2.5


You need to have Python and libshout 2 development packages installed.

For example on Debian:

sudo apt-get install python3-dev python-pip3 libshout3-dev

If you have pkg-config installed, make sure it can find shout (you may need to adjust PKG_CONFIG_PATH to contain $shout_prefix/lib/pkgcofig). Otherwise, shout-config must appear in your path.

Then install through pip:

sudo pip3 install python-shout

or though the git repository:

git clone
python3 install


python-shout is licensed under the GNU LGPL. See COPYING for details.
