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.

Radiodj: 234 Days Without Restart!

Saw a post on the RadioDJ forums from a new user who stated he was restarting his computer weekly.

When asked why he was restarting his PC weekly he came back with this…

“It’s called “SAMitis”… Precautionary settings”

We’ve all been there, having to restart the computer running SAM Broadcaster every few days or weekly because SAM wasn’t working as it should.

With RadioDJ there is no need to keep restarting your PC weekly. It can run for weeks without restart.
