<h2>The Basics</h2>
<p>Each icecast server can house multiple broadcasts (or mountpoints) each containing a separate stream of content. A listener can only listen to a single mountpoint at a time. This means you can have a single icecast server contain either multiple broadcasts with different content, or possibly the same broadcast but with streams of different bitrates or qualities. In this case each broadcast or stream is a separate mountpoint.</p>
<p>Each icecast server can house multiple broadcasts (or mountpoints) each containing a separate stream of content.

<p>At this point, the steps outlined here related to the Unix version or Win32 console version of icecast. Icecast is also available in a Win32 GUI version, and the steps are similar in setup, but not quite the same.</p>
<p>The first step in the process is to find and install the icecast2 server itself. How to do this is not contained within this documentation. After installation you should have and icecast binary and 3 directories</p>
