When your ready to Go Live, highlight the encoder and click the "Connect" button

You should now be able to begin playing music through WinAMp, or connect your turntables, mic & mixer to your sound card and broadcast live

When your done, just stop the encoder, IceCast will detect you have stopped your live broadcast and switch back to the auto dj.

Once you get everything set up, if you click the check box in Ed Cast to auto connect, you should then be able to easily connect with a few clicks.
