Not A Fan of Centova Cast

Most streaming services use Centova Cast for their automation system. Not a fan of it. Was wondering what other online automation systems are there? Looking for something different. Love radionomys system just not their customer service.

You can find about WHMSonic, not as polished as Centova, but it gets the job done.

If you want to get dirty in the code, grease your hands and dive into config files, you have liquidsoap and SCTrans, which are what both Centova and WHMSonic use in their autodj modules for Shoutcast. That path is full of spooks and takes a lot of butt-hours to get right, but in the end you won't depend on any canned solution to have your station your way.

Last but not least, you can always fire up a Windows VPS with radiodj, a free automation software, SAM Broadcaster nemesis, per se. It also comes with its learning curve, though.

HTH,

I have no ties to Radionomy/TargetSpot in any way. My posts/replies are my own so any advice I can give, try at your own risk.

Hi,

There are not many "created" systems that are easy to use.

In Centova, I also look for a more efficient programming system, calendar type, based on tags.

If you find something (that is not very expensive). Tell me

Fully automating a broadcast system ditches the art of you 'juggling' or DJing your music.

Putting an autoDJ in a professional broadcast kills the nature of playing music for others to hear. A streaming station is meant to let you broadcast to the world, instead of a fully tweaked configured palylist autodj bot. When you replace yourself with a juggling bot, where will that creativity go? Build a better bot? Create the ultimate playlist? Strip the human down to the bone, and you'll end up with... well... Bones.

My 2 cents.
Don't look for ways to 'automate', but to boost your jamming sessions. Your audience will notice.

HTH
