By using additional Mount Points, you can create multiple streams or music channels using one SHOUTcast v2 or Icecast v2 Radio Server. It is a great solution when you want to have streams in various bitrate or connect multiple encoders when broadcasting live.

Notice: Your broadcasting software needs to support multiple Mount Points. Only one Auto DJ can be used per one server account. 
If you would like to create playlists using Auto Dj for each stream individually you need a second or another server account.

To have more streams you need to have SHOUTcast V2 server, appropriate amount of bitrate and additional Mount Points in your package. 

You can obtain additional Mount Points here

Remember to configure your Broadcasting software properly by entering a proper name or a number of your mountpoint (SID). Use a number for SHOUTcast server and a name for IceCast servers.
