webcast-osx-audio

Streams Mac OS X audio input an mp3 webcast.

Installation

To install the module for use in your projects:

npm install -g webcast-osx-audio

Usage

Global installation exposes the webcast-audio command to your shell. Running this command will start listening to input, and connect to a local Chromecast with a stream of that input.

To direct system audio, use Soundflower.

Feel free to send pull requests! I'm not picky, but would like the following:

  1. Write tests for any new features, and do not break existing tests.
  2. Be sure to point out any changes that break API.
