Altacast (formerly known as Edcast and Oddcast) is a free and open source audio encoder that can be used to create Internet streams of varying types. Many independent and commercial broadcasters use Altacast to create Internet radio stations, such as those listed on the Icecast, Loudcaster and Shoutcast station directories. The original streaming software, Oddcast, was developed from 2000 to 2010. The official site at Oddsock.org hosted streaming media tools, which included Oddcast, Stream Transcoder, Icecast Station Browser plugin, Song Requester plugin and Do Something plugin. In late November 2010, Oddsock.org was shut down.
Highest paying job titles at EdCast include Sales Director, Sales Engineer, and Senior Software Engineer
