This morning I went onto the RadioDJ forums to see what was happening.
I saw a post from Marius the website owner stating that the Altacast sub forum had been removed.
“We were notified that Altacast is violating DMCA and as a result I will remove all related stuff from this forum.”
Marius went onto say this: “For support, please contact its author and don’t use our forum”
It appears Fraunhofer the people behind AAC encoding technology seem to think Altacast is breaking DMCA rules. Like its predecessor Edcast/Oddcast.
(Although we cannot find a DMCA complaint related to the Altacast website or software)
It now means support for Altacast Standalone/Plugin/DSP is somewhat limited.
For future updates you’re probably best keeping an eye on the Altacast Website
Be aware that future versions of RadioDJ may not support the Altacast plugin.
Which means you will have to find another alternative to stream with.
Update 2018: Altacast seems to be a dead project now there have been no updates since March 2016, the only reason there is still a website is because its hosted on a free hosting package.
