We Shoutcast have now removed legacy V1 servers from the Shoutcast YP, we will start the process of moving all customers over to the latest version of Shoutcast over the next 2 weeks. This will ensure that customers with public servers can continue their listing.

You won’t need to make any changes or updates to your streaming software or links, the latest version is fully backwards compatible with V1 sources and links.

We are unable to give exact times of the updates, your server will upgrade as we process the servers. You will notice your server reset at some point, it will come back up within a few seconds and as long as you have your source set up to reconnect automatically then there will be little interruption to listeners.

As Google Chrome also no longer supports Shoutcast V1, we don’t plan on offering the ability to run V1 servers via the control panel, however if you prefer to use V1 then please contact us and we can add limited support for this.

There is currently a network issue affecting several servers (see categories) with significant packet loss. This is being worked on and the datacentre staff should have the issue resolved shortly.

 

EDIT: I’ve called the datacentre and they have their engineers looking in to this. We don’t have any idea of how long it will take before normal service is resumed but we will update you here as soon as we know.
