Had Enough

Read 2126 times
I've had enough and leaving CentovaCast for these reasons:
1.) Lack of reply on forum, this is one of the worst forums I belong to you ask a question and don't get an answer. I try to help but the help I offer goes unanswered by the poster
2.) Closed source files which makes it impossible to make simple changes to things like volume control. People want to turn the music up and if the volume it at 100% how can you turn it up?
3.) Documents are confusing and not very helpful. I wanted to check on how to set up a static IP so I can run another service on a second IP but there isn't any info that I can find. The documents need a real update and CentovaCast doesn't seem to care.
4.) 4 days and I'm still waiting for a reply to my Support request

as much as I like CC I can no longer support the company  8)

azuracast or mediacp

Did you read that this is a community only forum?

2.) Closed source files which makes it impossible to make simple changes to things like volume control. People want to turn the music up and if the volume it at 100% how can you turn it up?

Maybe you have activated the option "replay gain". Deactivate it and you have your full volume.

3.) Documents are confusing and not very helpful. I wanted to check on how to set up a static IP so I can run another service on a second IP but there isn't any info that I can find. The documents need a real update and CentovaCast doesn't seem to care.

Documents / FAQ are really really good. Setup a static IP for other reason seems to be your own business. Centova Support maybe can help. I personally would extra charge those requests that has nothing to do with centova itself :p

Im also not happy with the actual situation. But Centova is still one of the most stable solutions on market!
Unfortunately we're in the same boat but I do have a question If one were to change to AzuraCast / MediaCP or EverestCast even is there anyway to keep the stream link up so the app doesn't need to be deleted and then reuploaded?

Same IP / Port / Username and Password basically or is that not a thing yet.
I do agree that Centova Cast is the better choice over the other options and we all know the names so I don't write them out and respects Centova. My intention with this post was to generate more conversations amongst my fellow members.
The other systems I tested all required a dedicated server. One uses Docker and I don't see anything good about Docker, the only dock I want is sitting by the dock of the bay. There is an OS Provisioning tool that claims to provide iceCasat and shoutCast but getting them to run on multiple sub-domains I wasn't able to get working, OK not completely true I was able to get 1 of the 13 station to play but adding a second sub-domain with IC and SC they both failed, not just failed were completely unavailable.
I'm 65% sure I'm going to re-install Centova and if I do I'm going to find away to adjust the volume down to 60%
