Welcome to the first session of our Open Media Ecosystems series! Let’s dive in with the stunning web radio tool, Azuracast.
In session 1 Jim and Amanda talk through the Who, What, When, Where, and How of Azuracast. You’ll be introduced to this awesome open source tool and how we use it here at Reclaim Hosting for our own Reclaim Radio Station. Setting it up is a breeze through our one-click installer on Reclaim Cloud, which you can read all about in our guide Running Azuracast on Reclaim Cloud. They also touch on how to point to a custom domain for your Azuracast instance in Reclaim Cloud, as outlined in the guide Adding a Custom Domain to a Reclaim Cloud Environment. By the end of this video you should be ready to tackle Azuracast yourself!
