Well, there is always the option of configuring it to play 24/7 automated...
But, you can configure DNAS to play a file when no stream is going, by editing this line in the config file..
; BackupFile can specify a mp3 file that will be streamed to listeners over
; and over again when the source stream disconnects. AutoDumpUsers must be
; 0 to use this feature. When the source stream reconnects, the listeners
; are rejoined into the live broadcast.
; Note that the backup file MUST be the same samplerate/channels as the
; live stream in order for this to work properly. Although bitrate CAN
; vary, you can use '%d' to specify the bitrate in the filename
; (i.e. C:\backup%d.mp3 would be C:\backup32.mp3 if you are casting at 32kbps).
; The default is no BackupFile

Backup file only plays for people tuned in when the SOURCE DROPS. It WILL NOT play for people tuning in when there's no source.

That's only a mp3 this no ?
Can we put a playlist with his mp3 ?

You can set a playlist in WinAmp and put it on repeat.
Alternatively, you can do on-demand streaming, though I don't believe that's exactly the solution that you're looking for.

sc_trans can source the DNAS from a folder of mp3s.
