Short Description
The streaming server Icecast. Using alpine linux. To use with MPD. Part of docker-music-stack
Full Description


This is an image for the streaming application Icecast using alpine as the operating system.

The idea is use this image together with a fully audio stack. You can edit the icecast.xml or use the fully audio stack I created. Check below about docker-music-stack.

Check alpine-mpd, alpine-icecast, alpine-sima and alpine-ympd.

How to use

docker run -p 8000:8000 --name=icecast -d vitiman/alpine-icecast:latest

An instance of icecast is now running with the port 8000 mapped to your host or docker-machine IP address.

Custom configuration

Check the github repository and you will find an icecast.xml you can edit and set your custom configuration. You just need to build the image again.

The passwords in the configuration are just for testing purposes.


I've made a group of images for a full music-stack fully working.

  • mpd My favorite music server application
  • icecast: To stream the audio over the world
  • sima: Autoqueue client. Never stop listen!
  • ympd: A minimal Web GUI.

Check the Github repository or the rest of images in Docker Hub. There is a docker-compose to setup everything.


You have two options to execute all the stack, using docker-compose or
launching the containers one-by-one, your choice.

The default access to applications are:

  • mpd: http://localhost:6600 or http://docker_machine_ip:6600
  • icecast streaming: http://localhost:8000/mpd or http://docker_machine_ip:8000/mpd
  • ympd gui: http://localhost:8080 or http://docker_machine_ip:8080

Docker Compose

Clone this repo. Edit docker-compose.yml and add your host volumes for your music, playlists and/or database, then:
