Lightbulb Use the TuneIn API to Grow Your Audience

All stations which participate in SHOUTcast's Streaming Service monetization platform can use TuneIn's API (AirAPI), which helps grow your audience. TuneIn displays the currently playing song/artist in real time in their directory and with SHOUTcast's API integration, your station's "now playing" information will be sent to listeners looking for the music you're playing!

You'll first need to get your station's API keys from TuneIn, just follow these simple instructions:
1) Goto http://tunein.com/broadcasters/api/ and get your API keys
2) Contact support@shoutcast.com and have them add your API information onto your account.
You will need to provide your SHOUTcast station name and your TuneIn Station ID, TuneIn Partner ID and TuneIn Partner Key.


Note:
This service is provided FREE to stations which are approved for the SHOUTcast Streaming Service Monetization program.
The service is not currently available for stations using SHOUTcast DNAS.

Im pretty sure anyone can do this with tunein's API. You dont need the monetization package.

Yeap, tunein's api is just for the sake of broadcasters to keep tunein up to date with what you're streaming...has nothing to do with monetization. Would be cool if it were...

What I do with SHOUTcast otherwise on TuneIn

Good points... But surely if you send your songs to the TuneIn directory to be displayed to potential listeners browsing the directory, you stand a better chance of more people tuning in if they see a song they like that you are playing, which, in turn, will increase TLH which if you are doing things right at your station, will mean that more people will hear your adverts, which means that you can charge more for them, which increases your income!

this is just about providing a convenience so you just send the title once to a compatible DNAS build / SHOUTcast service and it does what's needed for you without having to script / setup anything else (which some will have no issue with doing but others do, hence the provision being offered).

Sounds like what you're saying is that shoutcast's api is now integrated with tunein's and so broadcasters don't necessarily need tunein's scripts? If that's the case definitely cool.
