MediaCP Release Notes

In Release Notes by castcontrol

This maintenance release provides some minor improvements, introduction of Shoutcast v2.6 and also addresses a number of bugs introduced with release. Read full release notes.

Shoutcast DNAS 2.6 and 2.5

Shoutcast 2.6 has been recently released and introduces some controversial changes, introducing “Freemium” and “Premium” versions.

By default, without a Premium license, Shoutcast v2.6 limits streaming to ONLY MP3 with a maximum bitrate of 128Kbps. This is a significant change as many customers are used to freely using Shoutcast with both MP3 and AAC at any bitrate. For this reason, the MediaCP allows you to choose which version you would prefer to use, either the new version 2.6 or previous 2.5.

When you upgrade to MediaCP your Shoutcast 2 services will remain at version 2.5 unless you manually change them to 2.6 under the Misc tab

You can also set the default version for new services from System Config -> Plugins -> Shoutcast 2 -> Shoutcast 2 Version.
