Shoutcast Injecting Pre Roll Adverts

Woken up the news that Shoutcast/Radionomy were injecting pre roll adverts into peoples streams.

**Update: DJEgg posted this on the forums**

“We were testing the insertion of pre-rolls for one particular CDN (hosting provider) who’d requested it.
Unfortunately, in the process, pre-rolls for all registered DNAS stations was activated by mistake. We’ve now disabled it.
Thanks everyone for letting us know. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Monetization for DNAS is indeed opt-in, not opt-out”

 
This was happening to online radio station owners who are using the latest build of the Shoutcast DNAS.

Are you looking for a simple way to get now playing info from your Shoutcast server?

You will need an encoding program that supports title streaming in order for this to work.

Programs such as Edcast/MB Recaster/Radiocaster get now playing info from a text file.

Not all standalone encoding programs support text files therefore they won’t output now playing information.

1) You will need a PHP enabled web server with “fsock” connections enabled (Ask your host if they support this most good hosts do)
