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.
Keep seeing posts on the Shoutcast forums from people running radio stations who state that someone else is streaming using their station name.
“We heard 2 different streams under our station name, What is the source of the 2nd stream”
“Someone is using the same station name I want it removed”
“WTF? there’s a station with the same streaming radio name as my radio”
That’s the thing with Shoutcast people can call their radio station what they want and unless you’re a really big commercial radio station who has the money to get lawyers involved, There isn’t a fat lot you can do about it.
