You probably hate the fact that you need to keep your computer on all the time in order for your online radio station to keep streaming. You can't be too happy about your electrical bill also. It's hard being a one-man radio but if it would have been easy, everybody would be doing it. Fortunately for you, there is now a very cheap and very effective way of keeping your online radio station streaming 24/7, to the delight of your listeners. With Auto DJ your listeners won't even know the difference when you are streaming with Auto DJ as opposed to when you are streaming manually.
What exactly is Auto DJ?
The Auto DJ is basically a server based playlist. It allows you to operate a 24/7 internet radio station without the permanent connection of a live source. This means that you don't have to keep your computer running all the time in order to keep streaming. All you are required to do is to upload your audio files to our Auto DJ server via FTP and create playlists using a very easy to use Centova Control Panel. Your audience will be able to listen to your Auto DJ playlists the moment they are connected to your stream.
After you upload your audio files on our servers and create your first playlist you won't have to worry about your station anymore. Auto DJ will take care of everything. The Auto DJ service is designed to work in conjunction with a SHOUTcast server. Although we offer SHOUTcast hosting services as well, you don't necessarily need to have this service from us as well. You can connect Auto DJ to any SHOUTcast server.
Switching from Auto DJ to a Live Source is easily done by shutting off the Auto DJ and connecting the Live Source. No server restart is required. However, you need to keep in mind that the Auto DJ can't broadcast audio on its own. The Auto DJ only works when attached to a SHOUTcast server.
Why Auto DJ is better than any radio automation desktop software
Unlike desktop software, our Auto DJ solution will not cost you a lot of money. Desktop Auto DJ programs tend to be very complicated and hard to work with. We have designed our services to be as user-friendly as possible. This way, managing your radio station will be much easier and not to mention more fun. Since the actual Auto DJ server is hosted in our Data Center, you won't even need to leave your computer on all the time. You will be able to stream 24/7 from your radio station hassle free.
