Advert: Doesnt work

Hello Everybody,

Since today i tryed to use the Advert: in the title and artist.
It worked just ones, the info in shoutcast was that it triggered the ad.

Now i just hear the track instead of the advertising.

Can someone help me out.

Greetings BeatFlexx (Europe)

Hi,

don't worry.
You see in the server (admin) the green $ as active (mouse-over also possible)? Authhash correct?
Don't run the advert file to often and give it time, for example 1x or 2x per hour (max 5x per hour possible/allowed). Play exact 2:00 min advert.

If you get/have more listeners you'll see stats in RMO (Impressions) after ~24 hours.

But... You heard one time the ads before? Than seems all right.
Its normal that you sometimes don't hear ads (or never if you hear from wrong country). ^^

Hello HubuFM,

Yes i see the green $ icon.
The Authhash is correct.

I run the advert 2x per hour so ones every 30min.
The advert is exact 2min.

I'm in the right country, because i checked that, and because i heard the advert ones instead of the audio from the file.

To much stress for me in shoutcast v2, thinking of going back to v1.

But it sounds all correct. So your server is ready for the ad program.
Do you have listeners? So you can see reference in stats in next days. If you are the only one on server it is normal, because Shoutcast need some listeners to work with Revue.

For now i'm the only listener because i was still testing everything.
The Ad plays now 1x every hour and let it run for a while till it works 100%

After that i will put my script back to 2x every hour

Thanks for the information.
