Centova Cast Alternatives

Apologies in advance if I'm on the wrong sub for this post.

Does anyone know of a comparable/better solution? I'm curious what everyone else is using out there and if you've found something that works in the same manner.

Thanks!

We use MSCP Pro+. (Media Server Control Panel Pro+)
All stream servers are supported: Shoutcast v2 (2.5.x and 2.6.x), Icecast2, Steamcast.
New features: Multiple AutoDJs, Stream Transcoder, Broadcast Audio Processing.
The CentovaCast module of WHMCS is also compatible with it.

Hey,
Alternatively, AzuraCast would also go.

Thanks.

This seems to be the most comparable solution for a professional alternative to centova. Anyone have direct experience with MCSP Pro? I'm curious to see what ya'll think about it.

In a stream hosting environment we already use this.
- After Centova, some small things were unusual, but it turned out to be more logical.
- The user has much more freedom to configure the stream server and AutoDJs.
- There is Stereo Tool audio processing, that works very well.
- The Pro+ version includes radio automation softwares and works very well. This allows Centova's Liquidsoap to be completely replaced. In addition, there is video streaming.
- It is much safer than CentovaCast because each user service runs under its own UID.
- The WHMCS Centova module can be used for MSCP in the same way.
- Does not require a MySQL/MariaDB database (except SAM Broadcaster). So, in the event of a database crash, MSCP still runs.
- There are some small features that may be missing or work differently, but you can live with it.
