Shoutcast Advert Intro Creating Issues

as of today it looks like Shoutcast is playing and advert intro file before the stream kicks in on stations registered on rmo.shoutcast.com

There are delays trying to connect if you try to connect directly to stream

This is also creating a lot of problems for stations listed on TuneIn Radio - takes forever to connect

I'm using SHOUTcast Server v2.5.1.723 with a third party provider so I think I'm screwed and cant' create a new authhash outside of rmo

any suggestions appreciated...

We at Salsa Warriors are outraged regarding this. I hope this is a glitch and it's resolved.

Shoutcast has every right to insert their pre-roll ADs however that should be done on their website when listeners wish to hear a station on their site.

Shoutcast sponsor's are not paying us to run their radio ADs on our station's website. When a listener visits a station website, they should not be hearing a Shoutcast sponsor ad unless shoutcast pays the station.

I heard if you removed the AUTO HASH this resolves the problem and the forced AD AKA Pre-roll will not stream however we have not tried it. The problem is, if you remove the AuTO HASH stations will not be listed in the shoutcast directory.
