    Centova Cast v1.0.1 - ShoutCast/IceCast hosting control panel - Now available!

    Centova Cast v1.0.1 is now available!

    Centova Cast is a professional streaming radio server control panel and hosting management solution, providing complete control over the provisioning and management of your streaming servers.

    Its features include:

    • Support for both ShoutCast and IceCast streaming servers.
    • Playlist manager and server-based streaming source support, with support for Ices and sc_trans.
    • Feature-rich web-based administrative interface for provisioning and managing streaming servers.
    • Complete web-based client control panel for starting/stopping and configuring streaming servers.
    • Data transfer and listener statistics, complete with graphs.
    • Configurable bit rate, listener, disk quota, and data transfer limits for each client account.
    • Automated, built-in stream monitoring system to minimize downtime.
    • FTP server integration (ProFTPd or Pure-FTPd) for streaming media (MP3) uploads.
    • Automatic playlist generation for WinAmp, Windows Media Player, QuickTime, and RealPlayer
    • Flexible XML and PHP APIs for integration with third-party billing and provisioning systems.
    • Cross-browser compatibility.


    Centova Cast is extremely easy to use for both the administrator and clients. It is a complete, standalone control panel, and does not require any other control panel software on the same server (although it will happily coexist with CPanel, Plesk, and others).

    Thanks, everyone, for the feedback! Just an update -- we've carefully considered some of the issues a number of you have E-mailed us about (particularly in terms of the slim profit margins in the radio hosting industry) and in response to your concerns, we've adjusted our prices to hopefully better meet your needs as ShoutCast hosts.

    While Centova Cast has been in use privately on production streams for about a year now, we've only just begun our venture into the public market, so your feedback is very much appreciated. Thanks again, and keep it coming!

    HEllo,

    Is there a way to schedule certain MP3 to a certain hour? For exameple every hour I want a new show (new mp3) to start streaming, when it finishes, I want a custom playlist to fill up the space until next hour comes and a new scheduled show starts.

    This is the main feature missing on Centova Cast, is there any stimative date when this could be included in the next version?

    Thank you!

    What you're looking for is an auto-DJ system for your streaming source. Centova Cast is a streaming server control panel (for ShoutCast/IceCast), whereas a streaming source is a totally separate application (eg: ices, sc_trans, oddcast, etc.)

    While we do offer limited support for running a source on the server machine, the playlist management system currently just offers basic editing functionality. As with any ShoutCast/IceCast server, though, you can use any streaming source you like -- you're not required to use Centova Cast to manage your playlist.

    We currently have an AJAX-based playlist editor in development that's near completion, and once that's done we'll be looking at building some kind of auto-DJ system directly into Centova Cast. We don't yet have an ETA on this as our present focus is on integrating Centova Cast with a few billing systems (ModernBill, etc.) It's our next priority after billing integration, though!

    Just an update -- modules are now available to integrate Centova Cast with both ModernGigabyte's ModernBill and iHostDev's iHost billing software.

    Stream provisioning can now be completely automated using either one of these billing products. You can grab the latest version of Centova Cast from centova.com.
