Cannot change genre with my icecast server


New Member
Hello, .. I guess I have no clue how to change my genre even.. for my icecast server on Bdon radio.
It's set to pop and i tried going into the admin ctrl panel, says i'm not allowed to administrate it or w/e.
Just trying to change the genre from pop back to rock like I had with my old station?

Any help appreciated TY.

Hi bdon713,

You can set your genres under your control panels configuration settings. Navigate to the 'Mount Points' section and then for your /stream mount click on the 'Metadata Overrides' tab and then under this section you can set your stations genre settings.

okay - was able to do things like make it 'Public' thru that and i think change the stream name again? IDK if it takes awhile to rollover. - Everytime i try to update the genre (NOT leave blank etc) it doesnt show up after reset or stop then start-up again.. not sure if it takes awhile to kick in ?? TY though 4 the help!
