Important Notices

  • Upgrades from version 2.10 or earlier may include downtime of AutoDJ services during the upgrade process. The upgrade process may also take some time to complete depending on the number of audio media content uploaded to the MediaCP and the speed of your disk + cpu processor. If you are concerned about the time that it will take to update then we recommend first testing the upgrade on another system by following our backup & restore guide

Notable Improvements

  • Wowza Streaming Engine 4.8.18+1
  • Flussonic 22.05 Compatibility
  • Liquidsoap is now upgraded to 2.0.5, improving memory effeciency, fixing “Unknown” metadata issues and overall improved stability
  • Global Statistics page is updated and includes relevant disk capacity information
  • Icecast configuration changes are applied immediately without restart (where supported). If a restart is required then it will be performed automatically.
  • Icecast now includes Master-Slave Relay configuration options
  • Wowza Live Origin configuration is now possible to use with CDNs (contact our support to enable)
  • “Edge URL” Configurations with Flussonic, Wowza or nginx-rtmp require an Unlimited Subscription or Perpetual license.
  • Disabled features on services are no longer displayed to the Customer

Other Improvements

  • Nginx-rtmp timeout & drop_idle_publisher set to 15s to ensure reconnection is possible after network outage
  • MediaCP Upgrade will abort if package manager update fails (yum update or apt update)

  • The link to restart the service after creating or modifying a playlist is invalid
  • Icecast & KH Historics start & end time calculation is incorrect
  • ElFinder tmp path may contain failed uploads and should be cleaned up
