    Just a heads up that because of a bug with Airtime, VFR Europe is currently on an “emergency” schedule via Centovacast; most of the usual selection will still be there but at random playout times (I haven’t had time yet to deal with the airtime server and don’t want to reinstall the whole thing before capturing logs/database for the developers if these are useful). I will add Korno and Massies soundcloud mixes soon but need to check formats and perhaps re-encode as everything must be 192k MP3 source or or many players just go tits up with a bitrate change.

    Only the Shoutcast (Internet Radio.com / PVR) stream is currently active, the AAC streams on the German server (if the mountpoints are even still up) will probably be sending a low noise signal (which is put in by Airtime to keep the stream up). I was going to recompile liquidsoap to experiment with some AAC+ encoding to see if I can get the station to work with GPRS mobile internet out in the sticks anyway…

    Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible….

    Spent a lot of time last night playing around with liquidsoap and transcoding on DE server – got normal AAC, AAC+ is kaputt, but 96k aac seems fine. need to go back into town so will post more update later

    Today all the streams are now online from EPC1 (the secret goose shed) via liquidsoap

    you can tune in on the player here or on rtn VFRmedia (and possibly Tune IN if I’m still listed there)

    and the aac streams
