SSL is now included with all Centova streams, current clients will find the SSL Proxy Url on the Quick Links page in your Centova cast panel.  

SHOUTcast V2.6 is now available on select Centova servers (New York, Atlanta, Tokyo and Salt Lake City) The upgrade to v2.6 does bring some changes. If you remember back several years ago, SHOUTcast by AOL was sold to Radionomy and is no longer open source software. They do offer a free version which is what all servers run by default. The included free version supports mp3 formats only and can only stream at a maximum bitrate of 128Kbs. SHOUTcast Premium is an optional upgrade and offers both mp3 and aac+ streaming and up to 320Kbs bitrate. We are not in any way affiliated with SHOUTcast, the software is bundled into Centova Cast, the upgrade fee would go directly to them, you'll find a new option in Centova settings to enter your license id if you choose to upgrade.
