Live365 Rolls Out Encoder v1.1

Previously, we unveiled the Live365 Encoder, which was in the beta stage. Now, we’re happy to roll out the official version of the Live365 Encoder, v1.1!

Our team has added two new features and made several stability and usability improvements to the Live365 Encoder for v1.1:

  • Auto start encoder on application launch
  • Auto start encoder on system start
  • Resolved issues that were causing I/O errors on certain versions of macOS
  • Made it easier to select and copy multiple lines from the log
  • Formatted the icecast mount to automatically discard the first slash
  • Fixed the bug where the connected uptime did not always display properly

The Live365 Encoder is a free desktop application that you download and run on your desktop or laptop computer in order to send a live audio feed and metadata information to your Live365 station. The Live365 Encoder enables you to utilize LiveDJ mode with Live365’s tools, as opposed to requiring a third-party encoder.


As always, our Support team is standing by to collect feedback from our Broadcaster Community. To submit feedback, join the discussion in the community forum or simply send an email to Just be sure to include your operating system version, details about your automation system configuration, and any useful screenshots.

The Live365 Encoder is free to download and compatible with Windows and macOS-based systems. See our help article entitled Using the Live365 Encoder to download and learn more about the encoder.
