View Full Version : Nicecast song data

Hello all,

I run a 24/7 internet radio station. Approximately half of our programming is run by a DJ running with either Sam, Winamp or Nicecast. For the times when we are not live or a tech error occurs, we have Nicecast running as a backup.

Here is the only problem. If Nicecast is running, even if it is not on the air, the Shoutcast server picks up what song is playing in Nicecast and records that. It does not pickup what the DJ actually is playing. Many times we can log into the Mac using Nicecast and stop it while someone is live, but many times we are not available to do so.

So, my question...is there a way to not have Nicecast override the data that the DJ is feeding? Any info would be most appreciated. Thanks.
