How can I prevent stream ripper from stealing my audio?

Unfortunately, there is no way to truly prevent stream ripping from occurring. A feature we do offer, however, may reduce the possibility of the stream ripper succeeding in stealing the audio.

We suggest that you place an auto-kick timer onto your stream. This is a feature that we support! (Note: This applies to SHOUTcast streams only. Unfortunately, ICEcast does not support this in any way.)
HOW TO:
  1. 1) Login to the Media Control Panel
  2. 2) Once in the MCP, click Configure Server
  3. 3) Choose the Advanced Tab
  4. 4) Input a value into the “Always disconnect listeners after:”. This value is in minutes
  5. 5) Restart your streaming server by clicking the Restart Server button.
