I just download VirtualDJ7 but may have associated over a Shoutcast server ???
But don't forget, with VirtualDJ7 works this only for 10min as a Demo function, stream unlimit works with the Broadcaster version.
But it's good for a test how it works for you
VDJ 7 use then your PC and internet as Server, with all the needed resources.
And it multiplies your upload for each listeners!

How to Broadcast to SHOUTcast from an Apple Mac or iMac on OS X

I run Mac OS X and after some trial and error I think I have came across the easiest and best solution using Nicecast (briefly mentioned in the video above). The one problem with butt is the sound quality is not as a good as Nicecast. Butt sounds like a one speaker radio, also in butt it picks up all system sounds.
Nicecast is streaming software and will allow you to stream a specific application so by default iTunes, but you could choose Spotify or a browser like Safari or Google Chrome. Personally I prefer iTunes because it has more powerful up next playing features, whereas Spotify is still quite limited in allowing you to delete stuff from up next.
Nicecast is a free download with one restriction. After one hour noise will be layered over the top of your stream. You can just reset the app every hour to get around this or buy the $59 licence key for the full version which if you use it a lot will soon pay for itself.
Download Nicecast from https://www.rogueamoeba.com/nicecast/
*SIDEBAR* When the app opens or when you click Start Broadcast later on it will ask you to install an Extra called Instant On. It enables you to capture audio from any source instantly, with no need to quit and relaunch open applications. In short, enable it!! Unless you like restarting iTunes or Spotify all the time... *END SIDEBAR*
With the app open select a source e.g. iTunes, Spotify
Under info select the name of the broadcast, genre etc (optional)
Under titles select whether you want to display track info. 3DX doesn't support this so it is not worth it. I keep it off so it is harder to search for on the public internet. If people want to know the track then they can use an app like Shazam.
Under quality set the quality if you are using the steaming service above set to 96Kbps or whatever you paid for. Alternatively you can stream completely from your local computer at any bit rate. This is explained below. If you have a great upload speeds and you want to save yourself $10 a month then worth a look.
Step 6 (Optional - only required if using the paid streaming service):
Go to "Window" then "Show Servers". At the bottom right click the plus symbol to add a new server.
Set the name as anything you want.
Make sure server type is Shoutcast (or Icecast 2 if you choose Icecast).
Account is NOT required (IMPORTANT!! If you put this then login will fail!!)
Password is the password in your email along with address and port number.
Mount point is not required (unless using Icecast - usually "/live").
Close the window.
Start the music in your media player of choice, go back to Nicecast and click Start broadcast.
Goto the Share tab and then click Copy. Then go over to 3DX and paste in the link (remember to use Ctrl-V rather than CMD-V to paste as 3DX runs in Windows )
If you are using a hosted service remember to make sure only set the bitrate to your limit (e.g. 96Kbps) in quality settings, otherwise Centova Cast may block your account.
If may seem like a lot of steps. But all these settings are saved so the only thing you have to do in the future is fire up your media player, fire up Nicecast and click Start Broadcast and you are good to go.
EDIT: When listening in 3DX you can turn the source volume to its lowest setting in Nicecast. This will allow you to listen to the stream rather than through your media player. There is usually a 5-20 second delay. So this is useful if you want to listen to what everyone else is listening to rather than 10 seconds into the future. If you don't do this then you will have some echo. Alternatively you could disable the radio in 3DX and live in the future and listen through your media player.
Good luck and I hope this was a help.

No problem! It took me a while to figure out myself (and I am a developer) so I am more than happy to share to save people the same pains I went through.
Really cool is the Spotify and iTunes integration
A lot of members missed this...
How is this works? The Software stream the music from Spotify and iTunes down and upload this in the same time in your stream!?
But it looks a bit for many more options as for the Windows users! Really interesting

oh, if you choose traktor, your streaming server will need to be Icecast and not shoutcast.
Because traktor only stream in OGG and not MP3.
So I recommand getting a Icecast server for streaming.
If you want to been able to stream to a shoutcast server and in MP3 encoding, you will need some preparation and idealy an extra computer.
It will required you to do some live transcoding from OGG to MP3 on the fly.
It doable since it the setup I am using at home right now. I am using traktor and really liking it.
I personally recommand you to just rent a icecast server since it compatible with 3dxchat, but it won't be compatible with game like RLC.
You can write to me if you need more detail about the setup.

One thing as well, there are thousands of station out there that can be used in your homes. Here is a little walk through on how to get what you need to stream them.
1. Find a Station you like, googling internet radio with the genre you like can bring you to hundreds of options.
2. Next rick click on the screen and choose Inspect Element like in the Pic below
3. Go to the Right where you see the grey bar that is highlighted, this will bring up a lot of codes but what you need is easy to find. Most cases it will have mp3 forwarding it like in the pic below
4. Control-c will copy what you have lighted, do so then go in game and open up your radio then just control-v to paste this and poof, you are hyperlinking the station into your room.
