Centova Cast (shameless plug!)

About a year ago I started looking for a decent streaming server control panel for ShoutCast. What I needed was essentially a Plesk for ShoutCast streaming servers (well, IceCast, actually) -- something that allowed multiple streams to be hosted and managed on a single server, with server-side playlist management, bandwidth/disk quota support, and basically everything you'd expect from a standard web hosting control panel -- just tailored for streaming servers.

Suffice to say, I ended up pretty disappointed with what the market had to offer -- nothing really came close to what I wanted.

So I set out to build my own, and I'm happy to announce that after several months of live testing on a number of high-profile Internet radio streams, the first public release of Centova Cast, my streaming radio hosting control panel, is now available. It supports both ShoutCast and IceCast, disk/data transfer quotas, transfer and listener statistics, automatic uptime monitoring, and a variety of other features to automate the stream hosting process.

If you're in the streaming radio hosting business, or looking to setup your own stream, be sure to check it out!
