We believe it brings lots of value to the radio ecosystem, as evidenced by the thousands of stations using it. Sustainability, for us, is the tough task of keeping our core principles fully intact while still building a project that keeps a roof over our heads.

When we talk about sustainability, we don't mean that we're driven by a profit motive or going commercial. We aren't!

What we mean is that just because AzuraCast is free and open-source doesn't mean that it (or the time and energy poured into it) has no value.

We've just tagged version 0.14.0 on our Stable release channel. It includes custom background/favicon/art uploading, playlist cloning/looping, mount point intro files and much more. See the full changelog here:

New in Rolling Release: Upload an introduction file for each mount point of your station directly from the web interface! This intro file will be played to listeners before the main stream starts, and should match the bitrate and format of the stream itself.

New in Rolling Release: We now support directly uploading custom public page background images, system-wide album art and your own browser icon (or "favicon"), which we automatically scale to all the sizes typically used for icons.

For those of you who aren't Discord users, you can also join us on @liberachat's IRC network where we've set up the community. Ask questions, get support, share your station and more. Get connections details at
