• Servidor Shoutcast o Icecast ?

    IMPORTANT:
    Due to an update in the Google Chrome browser, you may not hear your radio. If the Streaming service has it with us, you will not have this problem. Shoutcast v2 * (recommended)

    There are three main options for operating a radio with us and these are the use of an Icecast or Shoutcast v1 v2 server. First, it is worth mentioning that all three types of servers are very similar in what they do, but there are some subtle differences that you can consider when choosing your server.

  • Icecast

    Icecast has mount points which means that you can automatically transfer AutoDJ listeners to a live stream and come back again without manually activating or deactivating them. So when connecting a live source, all listeners are transferred from the AutoDJ (/ autodj) mount point to the live (/ Live) mount point and then to the AutoDJ (/ autodj) mount point at the end .

    Against
    That is inside the directory instead of Icecast shoutcast you get less listeners than a Shoutcast server.

  • Shoutcast v2

    Your station appears in the SHOUTcast directory and is distributed to many other radio directories. This gives excellent exposure and probably leads to more listeners than can be done on an Icecast server. Can ban listeners over IP Shoutcast v2 offers an automatic transition between the AutoDJ function and live broadcasts without manually activating anything inside or outside the Centova panel. Therefore, when connecting a live source, the stream is perfectly crossfades automatically between the AutoDJ function and live source and vice versa..

    Against
    Shoutcast v2 now requires you to create a 'DRN' to your stream so it can be registered for SHOUTcast and like the stream of a 'public'. But with the Shoutcast v2 now it is also required that the stations set only the type of genre (and a secondary genre) for their station, and now they want to normalize the genre and simply limit all. Just setting the gender could be a problem if you play multiple different genres in your season.

  • Shoutcast v1

    Your station appears in the SHOUTcast directory and is distributed to many other radio directories. This gives excellent exposure and probably leads to more listeners than can be done on an Icecast server. It can prohibit listeners through IP.

    Against
    If you plan to run a server on your AutoDJ radio, when you want to stream live, you will have to manually disable the AutoDJ function in the control panel itself and then again when done.

  • Conclusion

    If you plan to run the AutoDJ function and also live broadcasts, then the capability of listeners to automatically transfer Icecast or Shoutcast to a v2 server is very useful and worth considering. But if you plan on just living without AutoDJ, then it would be worth considering a Shoutcast server v1 because you will continue to receive additional listeners should register in the SHOUTcast directory.
