ERROR STARTING CENTOVA V3 MP3 Key - SHOUTcast v2




The MP3 key is only required if you stream in mp3 format, if you choose to broadcast in AAC+ format, the key is not required.

SHOUTcast requires each stream purchase a $5 MP3 Key. The cost is minimal at only $5 and generated instantly http://shop.winamp.com/

THIS IS REQUIRED ONLY FOR SHOUTCAST V2.

IF YOU GET A UNKNOWN ENCODER TYPE WHEN YOU TRY TO START CENTOVA V3 USING SHOUTCAST V2 AND STREAMING IN MP3 FORMAT, THIS MEANS YOU HAVE NOT ENTERED YOUR MP3 KEY OR HAVE NOT ENTERED IT CORRECTLY, IT MUST MATCH EXACTLY LIKE YOUR RECIEPT FROM SHOUTCAST, LowerCast and UPERcast must match exactly, copy and paste both the name and key into centova one at a time, then restart server.

The most common mistakes clients make is failing to enter this key into the Centova v3 config settings, resulting in a error when the stream is started. You must enter the exact name and key that is issued (use copy/paste method when entering key).

The MP3 key is only required if you stream in mp3 format, if you choose to broadcast in AAC+ format, the key is not required.
