Preparation:

  1. Prepare an MP3 audio file to be used as the introduction track. The encoding parameters for the introduction track specifically, the bit rate, sample rate, and number of channels must precisely match the encoding parameters being used for your stream itself. (So for example, if your stream broadcasts at 128kbps in stereo at 44.1KHz, your introduction track must also be encoded at 128kbps in stereo at 44.1KHz.)
  2. In the navigation panel at the left-hand side of the screen, click Settings under the Configuration
  3. Click the Files tab.
  4. Click the Introduction file button. A file browser dialog should open, allowing you to browse your home computer for the media file you want to use as your introduction track.
  5. Select the media file you want to use as your introduction track and click the Open button at the bottom of the dialog. 6. The upload should begin immediately. Wait for the upload to complete.

How to:

  1. Go into your Control Panel
  2. Go to Server Configuration -> Files
  3. Browse for the INTRO (and / or Fallback) file located on your computer
  4. Save (update) the Configuration

You will have to restart your server.

Tune in and it should work.

If you just hear the INTRO file, but no stream, it usually means that the INTRO file is not the same bitrate / sample rate / channels as your stream.
