I suspect it won't be long before the old authhash won't work and a forced upgrade happens.

I just don't get their logic in forcing me to either lower my bitrate to something wholly unacceptable by me unless I give them money. They don't pay for my servers or bandwidth - I do. The rest of the changes I like but trying to extort money from me like this I can't do. And I refuse to lower my audio quality to remain part of Shoutcast.While the software will apparently work for now who knows how much longer before they start locking you out further.

I have all but two servers converted to Icecast already. Purring right along. And I am still streaming at 320k. Without being gouged. Sorry but I am not changing my bitrate and the software known as Shoutcast refuses to work for me.

Open source rules.
