    SHOUTcast now inserting commercials without Broadcasters permission

    I haven't received any complaints yet from our customers, but other companies have.

    Seems that SHOUTcast (Radinomy) have inserted pre-roll ads when a stream starts up.

    More info is here:

    and
    http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?t=399857

    Updates will follow.

    It might help if they receive a few thousand complaint emails for everybody here. However, I doubt it. I really miss Nullsoft.

    We were testing the insertion of pre-rolls for one particular CDN (hosting provider) who'd requested it.
    Unfortunately, in the process, pre-rolls for all registered DNAS stations was activated by mistake.

    We've now disabled it.

    Thanks everyone for letting us know. We apologize for the inconvenience.
    Monetization for DNAS is indeed opt-in, not opt-out.

    I wonder how long will it take to make it opt-out, because money talks :D

    What's to say that it's not something they'd already wanted to do but were told a number of times it wouldn't go down well...

    Either way, a) that's a complete cock-up to have done that & not know about it for quite a time until broadcasters complained and b) has shown their preferred stance on things imho.
