SHOUTcast 2.6 now available
We have now added SHOUTcast 2.6 as an option in the user area. We recommend using this version if you have a ‘new style’ authhash.
If you need to update from 2.5 then log into the user area and scroll down to Server Settings > Server Type. You will now see the option for SHOUTcast 2.6.
We have decided not to automatically force the update for all customers as many are still using the old style of Authhash to get listed on the SHOUTcast YP.
Unsure which version to use?
If you are not listed on the SHOUTcast YP then you can use an version.
If you have an old style Authhash, which is a string of letters and numbers only (e.g gM7nnd9TFjP94yE7EdJr), then use V2.5
If you have a new style Authhash, which contains dashes along with letters and numbers (e.g hNw3RgDg-W66u-pm8S-YAh7-aHGs8JWCBg4V), then use V2.6
Note: The authhashes above are randomly generated and will not work. They are intended only as examples to show the difference between the new and old formats.
