Linux/Unix Binary Packages
Most current Linux and Unix distributions provide either prebuilt binary packages or a way to build your own package of Icecast.
This is the preferred way to install Icecast, as distribution packaging is tuned to make Icecast fit well into your system. In most cases packaging will also provide necessary scripts/files to make Icecast start as a service on boot.
For details please refer to the package repository section of your distribution’s fine manual.
Hints that you might find useful:
- Thomas provides test builds, packaged for various distributions, using his OBS project for Icecast.
- There are package repositories that can be added to the distro package manager.
- Debian and its derivatives (e.g. Ubuntu) name the package
The source releases (for all platforms) can be downloaded here: icecast-2.4.0.tar.gz

In addition to Icecast, you will most likely need to download a source client for creating the actual stream. We suggest that you download one from our third-party applications page.
