Hey Pete & welcome to the forum. Thanks for your continued support throughout 2020 and we look forward to working with you in the year ahead. Thank you for our Christmas card, that was very much gratefully received!
Hello! We offer HE-AAC to all of our clients and there is definitely a huge advantage in terms of better audio quality at lower bitrates.
In both AzuraCast and Centova Cast, simply ensure your mountpoints are set to encode using the HE-AAC codec rather than MP3.
You are more than welcome to leave your Centova Cast service running for however long - we're not currently offering any form of transition service and therefore the two services would need to run in parallel until you are satisfied that you can discontinue your old service.
Here at Unmuted, we're constantly striving to provide exactly what our clients want. Over the past 4 months, we've introduced AzuraCast, video streaming, Alexa Skills and more. However, what would make your life easier as a broadcaster? What services would you like to see us offer in the future?
We are pleased to have launched our brand new AzuraCast documentation over on our Help website - take a look here: https://help.shoutca.st/docs/getting-started-with-azuracast
AzuraCast is a fast moving project and so this is a basic guide to the functionality of the software, we will update...
It may be important to note that specifically in the UK, TuneIn has lost its right to continue operating and so stations may slowly be removed from the directory (albeit more than likely a temporary measure!).
This seems to be a recurrent issue with AzuraCast. We plan to update the installation within the next 24 hours which should hopefully resolve any issues associated with incorrect IP addresses displaying.
Hello! This is an option enabled by the client in their client area for additional security. It would be impossible for us to activate this without your knowledge. Please contact our support team to resolve the issue & regain access.
Hey! Yes this is possible using SHOUTcast 2 - simply ensure you are connecting with a DJ account and your stream will automatically transition. You can read more here: https://docs.shoutca.st/docs/cc-Getting-Started.html
Unfortunately as AzuraCast is hosted on an entirely different server & infrastructure, a port & IP change would be unavoidable. That being said, we're not forcing any form of closure on Centova based services and therefore there's no need to change unless you really want to!
We do apologize - these issues are slightly more advanced and not always fixable by our basic level support team; they often need flagging to our developers who actually created these technologies. Hopefully, this issue should now be resolved for you?
