Web Radio: A Manual for streaming audio on the web by Zahir Koradia (Author)

admin 27 May 2021

In May 2013 Gram Vaani worked with CEMCA (Commonwealth Educational Media Center for Asia) to organize a workshop on how educational institutions can easily set up an Internet radio station on their campus, supplemented with Mobile Vaani based interactions. Web radio is an increasingly popular, low-cost option for community radio given the complex legal processes that face organizations seeking a local broadcast license from government authorities. The workshop was attended by over 10 institutions.

CEMCA has also published a basic manual for audio streaming and establishing a web radio station, using open source software tools, written by Gram Vaani’s Zahir Koradia. Accompanying the book is a DVD containing all the related enabling software. The manual is also available in PDF and ePub versions from both COL’s and CEMCA’s websites (CC-BY-SA).
