Rogue Amoeba has released Audio Hijack 3.5 with some notable changes due to the retirement of the company’s Nicecast broadcasting tool. Audio Hijack now adds broadcasting capabilities to its core audio recording features, enabling you to send any audio to Shoutcast and Icecast servers. This feature could be useful for podcasting, powering Internet radio streams, and live streaming DJ sets. Using the new Broadcast output block, Audio Hijack sends whatever audio the app is pulling in and sends it to an MP3 or AAC streaming server, including Shoutcast 2, Shoutcast 1, and Icecast 2 servers (for more details, see these Rogue Amoeba blog posts about Audio Hijack’s new features and migrating from Nicecast to Audio Hijack).
Audio Hijack 3.5 also adds a new Input Switch block that allows you to toggle between two different audio sources with a quick click, updates the Audio Capture Engine to version 9.0.4, and adds an Internet Radio template to the Template Chooser to help you get started with broadcasting audio.
