The Live365 Dashboard (our web-based platform) is currently compatible with the streaming of either MP3, AAC or M4A files. These are the only file types that you may upload to your Live365 media library. Other types of files should not be uploaded.

If you would like to use other formats (OGG, .wma, .flac, etc.), you can either convert them into MP3, AAC, M4A, or use an automation/playout software with Live365 to broadcast live. 

The MP3 files must be encoded at a Constant Bit Rate (CBR), maximum bitrate of 320 kbps, and with a sample rate of 44.1 kHz while the M4A and AAC files must be encoded at a maximum of 320 kbps bitrate and 44.1 kHz sample rate.

Live365 is compatible with many 3rd party live DJ and automation programs. If you are using 3rd party software, you may be able to stream different file types by using our LiveDJ feature and connecting an Icecast2 stream directly to Live365. The file types compatibility will depend on which 3rd party software you are using.
