    Hi, I am looking for a good ShoutCast Host. I browsed the offer forums and lots of host seem to disappear, so I am looking for a good host with autodj. Any recommendations? Thanks

    The only has that I had dealt with was iwebfusion.net, I had a shared account with them a very long time ago. The service was great and I talked to Jacob the owner hours on end.

    Though I have never had a shoutcast account with them, I can vouch for the Service but not the current support. Wen I was with them they were great maybe give them a go.

    Others will post after me, Though best of Luck!!!

    Most shoutcast hosts disappear as they try to offer 100 slots @ 128kbps for $5 per month and it ends up putting them out of business.

    Look for a host with realistic prices and you'll be okay.

    Spacial Audo offers Auto DJ but only with wma streams. http://www.spacialnet.com/streamhosting/

    Stream101 offers Shoutcast Auto DJ but the owner has a somewhat mixed record. They've been in business less than a year. http://www.stream101.com/

    Live365 offers Auto DJ (they call it Basic mode) but they're not cheap, at least in the PRO mode. They've been in business for 10 years. (Personal mode can be quite reasonable.) http://www.live365.com/pro/index.html

    disclaimer - I use Live365 personal. (http://live365.com/stations/vgroove50)

    Clearing the air...the owner you may refer to was named Bud. Tom started Stream101 to rid the bad name after he bought the company from Bud. Marcus (me) now owns the company, bought from Tom.

    Wow, my original post was over 5 years old! I haven't done much looking at stream providers recently. But it looks like over-all the field is improving.

    Good to hear you're part of that improvement.
