Help Someone’s Using My Station Name (Shoutcast)

Keep seeing posts on the Shoutcast forums from people running radio stations who state that someone else is streaming using their station name.

Shoutcast listings

“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”

We Don’t Need Another Radio Listing Website!

Frustration At Audio Distortion (Sam Broadcaster)

Been watching a topic on the Spacial forums where a long time user of SAM Broadcaster is complaining about really bad distortion on his stream.

I don’t have time for yet another rebuild. I’m tired of rebuilding.
I have to think about whether SAM is right for our station any more”

Winamp Feature Req: Smart Crossfade

A user has posted on the feature request section of the Winamp forums asking the developers to include “Smart crossfading” in the next version.

Winamp

“Smart crossfade analyses the playlist and determines if the songs are in increasing sequential track order from the same album. If they aren’t (like in most random mixes) user defined crossfading is used”

 
Any improvement in crossfading between tracks in Winamp would be welcomed.
