Hear is a list (although not exhaustive) to consider:
- Anyone can become a DJ in RLC or Second Life for starters! There is NO license or special permission to obtain from World Ops or Second Life
- Starting out as a new DJ will require WORK on your part.
- Obtaining the right tools
- At the very least, you will need a to purchase a streaming plan. One main reason you need a provider is that your personal internet connection is simply unable to handle the bandwidth that is required for all the listeners tuning in and the bandwidth needed.
- Consider your needs and your audience.

- Broadcasting: If you plan to go live, and if you are a serious DJ, you will. Then, you will need a broadcasting program that will connect to your streaming server. One of the best (and most expensive) is SAM Broadcaster Pro. We have high respect and use SAM Broadcaster Pro ourselves. However, there are other Broadcasting Progams (some of which is free) that you can download/purchase. Check out the list here.

- Using the prop editor, select or create a prop (many use the jukebox prop for this purpose). In the function window scroll to "play music script." Enter your stream URL which will look similar to this: http://126.96.36.199:1234 (1234 being your port number). Click OK and all finished. Within seconds you will hear your stream.
