Well, thanks...I guess. I've spent almost all day searching for answers including the FAQ and really couldn't find the answers, so I posted my question in here in the hopes somebody might have an answer...not a reference to where I've been already. Maybe I was misunderstood.
Here's one of the things about live365 that we like is that your playlist is continually being played...it's not "on demand" so when you log onto your station at 365live, you pick up the feed at the point in the playlist that it is playing. This allows you to setup a broadcast schedule.
Now...can we do this with Shoutcast? Can we just upload a playlist to the server and it runs 24/7, just waiting for somebody to log on and listen? If someone could SPECIFICALLY direct me in the right direction besides a "go read the FAQ" reply, you would be deeply indebted to a group of professional comics and producers here in LA.
If not...thanks and I guess we'll go with live365
