Welcome To LoudCity
|Theme: Dark | Light|
Welcome to LoudCity. Whether you're new to
webcasting, or a seasoned pro, we hope you'll grow with us. Here are
some essentials to make sure you get off to a good start.
Remember to send listeners to your LoudCity-hosted
page to tune in. It's really important. If you don't, you're not
covered by our license. Never launch music protected by copyright
from your website.
Always send valid song information
All music performed on your station must include
metadata when played. Specifically, your encoder must send Now
Playing information in the format Artist - Title
No deviation from this format is allowed. If you deviate, we
can't log plays, and you're not legal.
Be seen in our directory
Our listener directory sees thousands of listeners a
day. To be listed prominently, you should make sure your station has
a logo, active media servers, a proper name/description, and defined genres.
Be patient when starting something from nothing
It takes time to build a following. You can increase
your listenership by being on the air 24 hours a day, and providing
listeners with a stream that is Flash player-compatible (MP3 streams work
best). Allow a few weeks of broadcasting for the word to spread
about your station. In time, if the content is good, it will grow.
Join our forum and meet other broadcasters
Please join our broadcaster community over in the
LoudCity Broadcaster Forums.
You'll meet lots of great people
who share your love of webcasting.
