The power and benefit of radio being constantly accessible for your listener base is of the utmost importance for online broadcasters.
Podcasts, on the other hand, offer a different experience as they are 'chunks' of information, usually consisting of an hour or so, focused on specific topics.
NOTE: Podcasts can scheduled and streamed later - as radio!
We will clarify the differences and look where both are heading in the future.
Podcasts vs Broadcasts.
The settings below should work for all machines, even slow ones.
Later, you can try other settings which may look different and take advantage of specialised DJ Turntables, graphic accellerators etc. However, with bad settings, it is possible to crash Mixxx amd make it unable to start, if you do not know what you are doing. That is not the end of the world, just annoying - see the later Trouble Shooting section.
Windows, Mac OS X & Linux / Ubuntu versions are available. I am using Mixxx 1.12 beta. You need version 1.12 to do "phone-ins" easily. It can be downloaded here: http://www.mixxx.org/download/
Mixxx is supported on Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP, with native 32 and 64-bit versions. If you are not sure about 32-bit versus 64-bit, pick the 32-bit version.
