  • Stream Title:
    This is the title displayed to listeners on their media players when they tune in to your stream.
  • Email Address:
    Designates the contact email responsible for overseeing your stream. Centova Cast automatically sends notifications to this address when needed.
  • Company/Organization:
    Specifies your company or organization's name, serving various purposes within the streaming server.
  • Website URL:
    Defines the web address linked to this stream, if applicable. It might be shared by the streaming server.
  • Source Password:
    This password is essential for streaming sources to connect and broadcast on your stream. DJs intending to perform live broadcasts need this password to connect to your server securely.
  • Administrator Password:
    This password grants access to your Centova Cast account or the streaming server's internal administrative interface. It's recommended to use a unique password distinct from the source password, as per some streaming server requirements.
  • Time Zone:
    Specifies your local time zone, crucial for the autoDJ's track scheduler. This ensures that playlist times in the Playlist Manager always align with your local time.
  • Locale:
    Determines the language and date/time formats within the control panel, customizing the interface to suit your preferences.
  • Character Encoding:
    This setting defines your preferred character encoding for interpreting MP3 ID3 (metadata) tags. It's especially vital if your MP3s contain non-Latin characters (such as Cyrillic, Asian characters, etc.). Ensuring the correct character encoding guarantees accurate interpretation of characters in your media, particularly within artist, album, or track names. Do note that this feature specifically affects MP3 ID3 tags, whereas Centova Cast internally uses Unicode (UTF-8), accommodating characters from a wide array of languages.
