Desktop Shortcut to Stream Remote Audio from INOmini 635
February 02, 2016

Create a Desktop shortcut for listening to the audio stream from your INOmini 635 SiteStreamer.

Abstract: We recently received an inquiry from a customer who has 5 x INOmini 635 SiteStreamers in his network of stations and he needed a convenient way for their receptionist to verify the audio on their translators when a listener would call-in with an issue.  His concern was that he didn’t want non-technical station personnel to have full access to the INOmini 635 where they might inadvertently change the settings that could really mess things up.

All he needed was a simple way for station employees to verify that a translator 50+ miles away was indeed on the air.

Solution:

  • Go to your PC’s Desktop and right-click
  • Select “New
  • Select “Shortcut
  • Enter the URL of the INOmini 635 along with the port number, and the mp3 file name. The following is an example for the INOmini 635 at Inovonics. http://50.79.39.149:635/mp3_128.mp3

  • Click “Next
  • Name the Shortcut something unique to that particular translator site.
    The following is an example for the INOmini 635 at Inovonics Inc.

  • Click Finish
  • Now the Shortcut appears on your PC’s desktop


  • By double clicking on the shortcut, your browser should open and you will begin hearing the Off-Air audio in a matter of seconds.

Things to Remember:

  • The INOmini 635 can only stream audio to one listener at a time. If you are listening and someone else opens the URL, they will knock you off. The last one to click on the link gets to listen!
  • If you have limited bandwidth, the INOmini 635 can stream a lower bitrate audio. The URL is the same except the file name is mp3_64.mp3 instead of mp3_128.mp3. LO stream is 64k and HI is 128k, both quite acceptable for verifying the audio at a remote translator site.

  • Remember, you can create multiple shortcuts for as many different translators as you have on your network!

Enjoy!
