SHOUTcast consists of a client-server model, with each component communicating via a network protocol that intermingles audio data with metadata such as song titles and the station name. The client-server Software architecture model distinguishes client systems from server systems which communicate over a Computer network In computing, a protocol is a convention or standard that controls or enables the connection Communication, and Data transfer between two computing Metadata ( meta data, or sometimes metainformation) is "data about data" of any sort in any media It uses HTTP as a transport protocol, although multicast is another option. Hypertext Transfer Protocol ( HTTP) is a Communications protocol for the transfer of information on the Internet. In Computer networking, the Transport Layer is a group of methods and protocols within a layered architecture of network components within which it is responsible for encapsulating Multicast is a network addressing method for the delivery of Information to a group of destinations simultaneously using the most efficient strategy

The most common use of SHOUTcast is for creating or listening to Internet audio broadcasts. SHOUTcast makes it possible to inexpensively set up an Internet broadcasting station, so hobbyists and large radio network owners alike can use it to set up their own broadcasting network for a fraction of the cost of a traditional AM broadcasting or FM radio station. See also Frequency modulation, FM band FM broadcasting is a broadcast Technology invented by Edwin Howard Armstrong that
Some traditional radio stations use SHOUTcast to extend their presence onto the Web. The World Wide Web (commonly shortened to the Web) is a system of interlinked Hypertext documents accessed via the Internet.
SHOUTcast's streaming protocol uses metadata tags and responses that all start with ICY, which stands for "I Can Yell", the original name of the protocol. A cybersquatter registered the associated icanyell. Cybersquatting, according to the United States federal law known as the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act, is registering trafficking in or using a domain name with com/. net/. org domains before Nullsoft, so Nullsoft changed the protocol's name from I Can Yell to SHOUTcast. Despite the name change, the ICY prefix persists in the protocol spec.
