If you do not have all required software yet, download and install B.U.T.T. (Broadcast Using This Tool).
This simple app does not allow creating any playlists, so it can be used to broadcast the sound from your microphone, line-in input, an external mixer of from a different software.
1. Before you start the configuration process, log in to the Centova Cast Panel and select the Quick Links section.

If you would like to use AutoDJ and broadcast live using BUTT, you need to create at least one DJ account in Centova Cast Control Panel by selecting the DJ option in the menu of Centova Cast Control Panel.
