DJ Management

The DJ manager allows you to create and configure DJ accounts allowing your station's DJs to have limited access to the features of your control panel.

Once an account has been created for a DJ, the DJ can log in with his DJ account's username and password using the same login form you use to access Centova Cast.

For SHOUTcast DNAS v2 servers, DJ accounts can also be used to perform live broadcasts. The DJ account's username and password become the source username and password for connecting to sc_trans v2.

The DJ Management page may be accessed using the DJs link under the Configuration heading in the navigation menu.
