neralex: it is not the end of SHOUTcast and i'm not at liberty to go into details on why it is taking so long to get the authhash system working again (and just saying roll things back isn't viable considering what was changed behind the scenes leading to this scenario in the first place).

when it is ready and tested then things will start again and those wanting an authhash will be able to get one (or even to make it themselves if my ideas come to fruition on the DNAS integration). i am hoping this will be a lot sooner now but people are going to complain more if things are buggy than just not working, yes?

and what is not funny is being accused of not caring.

I am not accusing anyone of not caring, not doing their job or even turning their back on the SHOUTcast community. I was a longtime broadcaster and gave it up for a few years, but am back due to I have a new reason for starting up again.

I was just looking for more info on what was going on, since I have been trying for weeks to get an authhash.

I will say this though, it might save you some grief if you explained more on the page which says things are down due to a server migration and directing people to e-mail an aol.com saying you will create an authhash for them while the registration page is down.

Keep up the work though, I will be waiting here patiently.

godarky: my last comment was aimed at a neralex's comment.

as for updating the page, maybe more should be on there but then most people aren't bothering to read it properly in the first instance so i see fully where you're coming from but the number of people who've kept asking me shows it's not being read.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

either way, i finally got all key aspects implemented at 11pm last night so we're now into testing / finishing things off so should have it rolling out soon. additionally, some authhashes previously created are no longer valid for some users so if that does happen then people will need to pm me until things are live.

so would this be causing my shoutcast server to not allow clients to connect then? all my sc2 servers give ICY 401 service unavailable but you can view the status page... just happened in the last day or 2.

some of the authhashes were removed (happened earlier than was intended but was needed at some stage). i'd need emailed (from my site link in my signature) or pm'd the following information for any of your non-working authhashes to get replacement ones created for you:
  • Station Name (required)
  • Description about the station (optional but recommended)
  • Genre (required and needs to be one entry from the list from http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?t=303241)
  • Keywords / Tags (optional)
  • Website URL (optional but recommended)
  • Country (optional but recommended)
  • State (if in USA) (optional)
  • Primary Language of the stream's content (optional but recommended)
  • Is the primary server of the station to be private i.e. not shown in the playlist provided by the directory (default is public so anyone can access it instead of just via shoutcast.com)

if it's the same source stream, then I believe not only CAN you use it on more than once DNAS, but you actually SHOULD do so - that is my understanding (1 key per station, no matter how many servers)

correct me if I am wrong

if your multiple DNAS servers are for DIFFERENT streams, I don't know why you would do that ... you have enough trouble setting up one stream, can't see you managing two or more

Is it just me or are shoutcast users getting dumber?

correct, the authhash is basically used for setting the details shown in the YP listing and where appropriate it is used for grouping multiple instances of the same stream to the same YP listing. the same as with the sc_trans mp3 encoder unlock key which is meant to be done on a per station basis.

if you read the posts after the one you quoted then you'd see that i've been creating authhashes for people when they've been asking for them which was only a day after that post so it's been partially available for the last 4 weeks.

if you want any then see http://forums.winamp.com/showpost.ph...0&postcount=46 and send me the details. otherwise the new system is public and available to developer partners, just not to general users which i still need to finish implementing into the DNAS itself.

yes it should have been finished a lot sooner but when i've had to deal with some users wasting mine and other people's time (plus i cannot code 24/7) it has taken longer than i'd have liked but what's the benefit in rushing out a system which doesn't work and will just annoy people like yourself even more?

it's not stopped other people pm'ing and emailing me requests for authhashes and if you were not sure, just asking would have been better to do than sitting it out and getting worked up over it - if you never ask then you'll never know.

anyhow, i've sent you 4 authhashes so you can list all streams separately so the different bitrates aren't grouped together

Can't send PM

I tried to send the PM but I couldn't. How can I get my authhash? I read that the mail did work but sometimes it didn't. What is the next step?

Thnx

nanakweku64 and rush-2112's pm's have been replied to at the time.

Kwijibo: sending a pm should always work (would be interested to know what error was reported when trying to send it). if not send an email to my address from my site.

Hi - definitely not the end of SHOUTcast - quite the contrary... After a few months of hurdles we're gearing up for a few new updates - first being a work-around to get the authentication hash keys generated for the new v2 tools.

Thanks for your patience. I know it hasnt been smooth sailing and it frankly sucks but we're working on it!

there's no need for me to do it now as you can do it via the DNAS with the build 27 release (from yesterday).

Hi DrO, nevermind my pm and e-mail, apologizes I don't knew about! LOL

Added ability to create, update and remove authhashes via the administrator summary page (accessed from admin.cgi?sid=0)

Anyway Thanks!
