Existing users will need to download the latest plug-in to upgrade.

What is it?
ConCast is a SHOUTcast, Icecast and Podcast player for DivX Connected, capable of playing most AAC and MP3 streams.
Originally an experiment in adding audio to ConnectedVNC, the ConCast plug-in is primarily designed to enable users to stream sound from their PC to their set-top box using one of the many free SHOUTcast/Icecast servers, for example if you want to listen to Spotify or iTunes on your TV.
To stream audio from your PC
One of the easiest ways to listen to audio from your PC using ConCast is to set your default recording device to Stereo Mix, which you’ll need to enable if you’re using Windows 7 or Vista, and install edcast (to encode the sound) and Icecast2 (to broadcast it).
There are plenty of online tutorials showing how to setup edcast and Icecast2, and more ConCast specific information will be posted here soon.
