Setup broadcasting in Mixxx

Mixxx is Open Source DJ software and it can be downloaded free of charge on the Mixxx website. After the first version came out in 2001, it is now downloaded over one million times annually. It includes lots of features common to commercial DJ software as well as some unique ones. Since the release of version 1.11, we fully supports broadcasting with Mixxx. This tutorial describes how to setup Mixxx for live broadcasting with us.
