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.

We Don’t Need Another Radio Listing Website!

Saw a link popup on the Internet a few days ago for a new radio listing site called “myradiotuner” from the same guy who codes Nextkast so I went and had a look at the website.

When I first tried it I was greeted by a static page although I got stations to play eventually on another browser. Yes I know its under construction but even then It doesn’t look great, The coding/layout looks almost like a clone of the Nextkast website.
