Default Setting up a "radio station" on Ventrilo

Hi guys, I'm new here, and I know that this question has probably been asked to death, but my searches through both Google and the Ventrilo Forum Search feature have both been fruitless. I play World of Warcraft, and recently, I went on my friend's guild's Ventrilo channel. A cool feature that I noticed was that they had a special area in their channel where various guild members could DJ-i.e., play music for the people on the channel. I've been interested in setting something similar up on MY guild's ventrilo channel, but so far have not found any set of instructions or guides to help me in my quest. I've tried reading through the setup page and have checked all the stickys, but to no luck. So how do I do it? All I want to do is just be able to play music for other people in the channel, AND also be able to talk on Ventrilo if need be. I would probably set it up to work with my Winamp client.

Here's some info on my rig and setup:

Ventrilo Client Program version 2.3.0
OS: Windows XP SP2
AMD Athlon 64 3500+ @ 2.6Ghz
OCZ 1GB (2x512MB) Value Select DDR3200 @ Custom Timings
MSI K8N Neo4/SLI 939 Motherboard
Onboard Creative Soundblaster Live! 24-bit audio
Western Digital 7200RPM ATA 250GB Hard Drive
Plantronics Audio .350 Gaming Headphones (non-USB headset).

If its of any importance, I'm on a fairly fast wireless broadband connection. Thanks in advance.

One often form of "broadcasting music" is to set your line to "stereo mix"

Turn off push to talk hotkey and then set your sensitivity to 1. You will then need to alter the different output levels from your volume controls. This will basically broadcast anything that comes through your speakers. If you are playing a game they are going to hear that game, if you are playing music....they will hear the music

what you hear they will hear.

That's just one suggestions....its a commonly used one.

I don't use speakers though-my headset is connected directly to the audio/microphone input jacks in my motherboard.

I would want to play the music to my other guildies while also playing the game at the same time. Doable?

When I said speakers I mean any sound output device.....speakers....headset.....whatever you use to hear your sound.

As far as having soley your music broadcasted, from lets say winamp, theres no "plugin" for that kind of thing. As I suggested before is probably the best "doable" way of accomplishing your goal.

You can play your game and do this, just turn off your in-game music.

Drunken - you will need to select 'what-u-hear'
