5. Shoutcast v2.6 Premium Features
If you want the station to be public on Shoutcast.com directory, then you will need an authorization key (authhash).
For the new streams that are created, if DNAS 2.5 shoutcast is used, the new autohash generated is incompatible.
Because of this, if you want to use the Shoutcast stream and want the radio station to be listed on shoutcast.com, you will need to use the new version of Shoutcast 2.6
In order to create the autohash, you will need to register at this address: https://radiomanager.shoutcast.com/
There are two options:
- Shoutcast v2.6 Free version supports only 128kbps MP3 encoder stream. Enter your Authhash code if you want to list your radio on Shoutcast Directory listings.
- Shoutcast v2.6 Premium if you need to stream by AAC encoder too and higher bitrates. Enter your premium User ID and Licence ID

Once your DJ is on air, the show will be recorded under your radio account as an MP3 file and it will use your available hosting space. Long shows can use too much space, 500mb to 1GB, especially if the record quality option is set to 320kbps.
