How to Install the Live Radio App from the Livebox Streaming server?
Live Radio is a self-hosted, all-in-one web radio management suite. You can now start up a web-based radio station effortlessly using this Live Radio set up.
First, install the Live Radio app from the Livebox App Store.

Now on the Live Radio dashboard, you can start adding your Radio stations.
Rich Media Management: Upload songs, edit metadata, preview songs and organize music into folders from your browser.
Playlists: Add music to standard-rotation playlists (in sequential or shuffled playback order) or schedule a playlist to play at a scheduled time, or once per x songs/minutes/etc.
Live DJs: Set up individual DJ/streamer accounts and see who’s currently streaming from your station’s profile page.
Web DJ: Broadcast live directly from your browser, with no extra software needed, with Live Radio’s built-in Web DJ tool.
Public Pages: Live Radio includes embeddable public pages that you can integrate into your existing web page or use as the basis for your own customized player.
Listener Requests: Let your listeners request specific songs from your playlists.
Remote Relays: Broadcast your radio signal (including live DJs) to any remote server running Icecast or SHOUTcast.
WebHooks: Integrate your station with Slack, Discord, TuneIn, Twitter and more by setting up webhooks that connect to third-party services.
Detailed Analytics and Reports: Keep track of every aspect of your station’s listeners over time. View reports of each song’s impact on your listener count. You can also generate a report that’s compatible with SoundExchange for US web radio royalties.
For Server Administrators
Role-based User Management: Assign global and per-station permissions to a role, then add users to those roles to control access.
Web Log Viewing: Quickly diagnose problems affecting any part of the Live Radio system through the system-wide web log viewer.
Automatic Radio Proxies: Many users can’t connect directly to radio station ports (i.e. 8000) by default, so Live Radio includes an automatic proxy that lets listeners connect via the http (80) and https (443) ports. These proxies are also compatible with services like CloudFlare.
