Q. Why won't my shoutcast stream show up on shoutcast.com?

A. All of our shoutcast servers will correctly connect and list your station on shoutcast.com

There are of course a number of factors that can prevent this from happening. If your station is not showing up on shoutcast.com please verify the following;

If streaming live;
1. Ensure that your encoder is set to send meta data and list your station on shoutcast.com - this is usually set in the "yp" or "yellowpages" tab of your encoder.
2. Ensure that your server is set to be public and not private - in the shoutcast control panel go to configure server -> server overrides and set "public server" to "always". Save and restart the server 1 time.

If streaming using autoDJ;
1. Ensure that you have set a genre and description for your station - in the control panel go to configure server -> autoDJ and set the genre and description to something. Save and restart the server 1 time.
2. Ensure that your server is set to be public and not private - in the shoutcast control panel go to configure server -> server overrides and set "public server" to "always". Save and restart the server 1 time.
