Network Tab

The Network tab allows for some basic networking-related configurations:

Name

This is the friendly name of Jamcast as it will appear to other devices on your network. Specify the $server macro and Jamcast will replace it at runtime with the computer name (see above screenshot for example usage). You must restart the Jamcast service for changes to this setting to take effect.

Network Port

This is the TCP port Jamcast listens on for all inbound HTTP/UPnP network traffic. The default is port 58642. Be careful changing this setting -- if you specify a port that's already in use, the Jamacast service will not be able to start. You must restart the Jamcast service for changes to this setting to take effect.

General

Enable auto playlists: The auto playlists (Random Tracks, Newest Tracks, etc.) can be disabled via this option.

Auto playlist maximum tracks: This is the maximum number of tracks contained within each auto playlist. NOTE: due to a performance limitation, the Random Tracks auto playlist will never contain more than 1499 tracks

Limit artist searches to album artist only: By default, Jamcast considers both track and album artists during UPnP search operations. Enable this setting to search by album artists only.

Sort files by track number when browsing filesystem: By default, Jamcast sorts track within the Browse Filesystem container by filename. Enable this option to sort these tracks by track number.

Import

Ignore track metadata on import: Enable this option to ignore track metadata (tags) when scanning shared folders. Jamcast will instead infer artist/album/title metadata from the storage directory structure and filename. This option is useful for those users who use folder and filenames to organize their media.

Startup scan delay: The number of seconds the Jamcast service will wait after startup to begin scanning shared folders. Set this to a nonzero value to delay startup scanning when system resources are taxed during Windows startup.
