The stream tab contains the basic configuration settings for your stream station.
Therefore the fields available on the Centova Control Panel include the most important features for your streaming station:
Via this page you will find all the information of your Stream Tab available on your control panel. Below you are also able to watch the video tutorial that explains to you the two important features on how to reset the Encoder Source password and the Administrator password via admin Control panel.
Specifies the title for the stream radio station. This will be displayed by listeners in the media players when they tune into your stream.
Specifies the E-mail of the person in charge of managing your stream. Centova Cast will automatically send notifications to this address when necessary.
Specifies your company/organization name. This may be used by the streaming server for various purposes.
Specifies the URL to the web site associated with this stream (if any). This may be published by the streaming server.
Source password: (see video tutorial)
Specifies the password required by streaming sources to connect to this stream and begin broadcasting. This password must be provided to DJs who will be connecting to your server via a live source to perform live broadcasts.
Administrator password: (see video tutorial)
Specifies the password required to login to your Centova Cast account or the streaming server’s internal administrative interface. Some streaming servers require that this password must differ from the source password, so it is best to use a unique password here.
Specifies your time zone. The autoDJ’s track scheduler uses this to ensure that the times configured for playlists in the Playlist Manager always reflect your local time zone.
Specifies your locale. This determines the language and the date and time formats used in the control panel.
Specifies your preferred character encoding for reading MP3 ID3 metadata tags.
MP3 audio files do not contain any information about the language or character set in which they were encoded, so if your MP3s artist, album or track names use a non-Latin character set Cyrillic, Asian, etc., you will need to set your character encoding appropriately to ensure that all of the letters in the alphabet of your language are interpreted correctly from your media.
Note that this feature is only used for the interpretation of MP3 ID3 tags. Centova Cast itself uses Unicode (UTF-8) character encoding internally which can represent characters from virtually any language.
