  • Listeners disconnect on DJ change.

    When changing the DJ for the SHOUTcast server, all listeners have to refresh their page to listen to the new DJ. Is there a way to get around this?

    Make sure the frequency and channel match

    Make sure the next dj is auto connecting.

    when the closing dj drops the new dj should take over quite smoothly.

    alternatively you could use a back up file.

    ; BackupFile can specify a mp3 file that will be streamed to listeners over
    ; and over again when the source stream disconnects. AutoDumpUsers must be
    ; 0 to use this feature. When the source stream reconnects, the listeners
    ; are rejoined into the live broadcast.
    ; Note that the backup file MUST be the same samplerate/channels as the
    ; live stream in order for this to work properly. Although bitrate CAN
    ; vary, you can use '%d' to specify the bitrate in the filename
    ; (i.e. C:\backup%d.mp3 would be C:\backup32.mp3 if you are casting at 32kbps).
    ; The default is no BackupFile
    ; BackupFile=C:\intro%d.mp3

    The secret is in the consistancy of the stream settings
