How it works

Use the Upload file function which will allow you to upload your files either from a PC or from an FTP account provided directly by us.

The recommended format for Inonda is <strong>mp3 44100Hz CBR (Constant Bit Rate)</strong>. If you upload VBR (Variable Bit Rate) mp3 files they will be automatically converted to mp3 44100Hz at 320Kbps. If your audio library is in WAV format we advise you to convert it to <strong>mp3 at 320Kbps</strong> for maximum audio quality.

Inonda is compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla, Internet Explorer 10, 11 and Edge.

Yes, with our calculator, based on parameters such as transmission quality, simultaneous listeners, hours and days of listening, you can get an estimate of the bandwidth consumption (TB).

Of course! If you’re already member of a news agency that provides you news, forecasts, traffic alerts, and other daily or periodically news, you simply have to download them as usual and upload in your FTP account and then on Inonda.
See the user guide for more info.

Yes, you can use Inonda with whatever SHOUTcast or Icecast compatible streaming server, however our plans already include a streaming service thanks to our StreamSolution platform. If you use our streaming, you can access a detailed Statistics panel and use our XwebPlayer, in a light version, compatible with iOS and Android.

Sure, Inonda can be connected with an external stream that you can create by your own with software like CasterX and radio automation like Xautomation, or similar. You can also send the audio signal from your studio to Inonda using Inonda LiveDJ.

Our player can be easily used on iPhone like a web-app, but if you prefer a dedicated app for your web radio feel free to contact us via email : accounting@xdevel.com or by phone: +39 0942793988. We will give you the best solution!

With our XwebPlayer software you can share your contents on Facebook, Twitter and Google+. Do you need a specific player for Facebook? Contact us via email: accounting@xdevel.com or by phone: +39 0942793988.

You can give to each audio file an expiration period of time, so the commercials will be broadcasted only at the specified time.

Specific features for voice track management will be introduced shortly. It is possible to create a similar effect by inserting an audio file (voice track) between two tracks in the playlist and setting its MIX point so that it overlaps the following track.

The cases in which it is possible to find disconnections that prevent the regular use of Inonda Live DJ or cause the display of a blank page on the management panel of the station, are:

  • unstable or slow internet connection;
  • presence of third party software that saturates the network bandwidth;
  • system update in progress.

In order to monitor the stability of the internet connection, we recommend installing the PingPlotter software.

Absolutely yes, to broadcast live with Inonda you need to purchase and install the Live DJ plugin.

Live DJ is a plugin that install on the PC and allows you to go live and listen to the audio of the broadcast of your station at the same time.

Once the Live DJ plugin is installed, you only need an incoming audio device (e.g. microphone, mixer, etc.) to intervene live and transmit the signal on the stream of your station.

For each account it is possible to connect one or more collaborators with different roles (Owner, Station Manager and Deejay).

Owner is the main user and can access all Inonda functions with the privilege of managing the Users section where he can add collaborators, specifying their email and role. NB: the Owner in an account is unique and cannot be changed.

Deejays can only manage the broadcast.

The version does not include the LiveDJ plugin for live streams. To make a live broadcast you need to subscribe a plan

Inonda does not provide for any agreement with web platforms for the management of free music.

Inonda has a demo music archive to allow you to make the most of the platform during the 7 days. At the end of the trial, if you decide to subscribe to an Inonda plan, you will be able to create a new archive.

The URL of the streaming stream is available in HTTP and HTTPS by accessing the Inonda panel, clicking Edit> Settings> Streaming.

Yes, among the Inonda functions there is the Download action which allows the owner to download the audio files that are inside the archive.

No, the REC key performs the function of recording the live broadcast, in case you want to insert a podcast of a program in the schedule at a later time.

Buy

You can pay with all the credit cards supported by Avangate (our online payment partner), with PayPal, or if you like with bank transfer. In this case your account will be activated after we receive the payment (usually after 3 or 5 days). If you are in hurry, we suggest to use PayPal or credit cards. Prepaid cards are not accepted.

As said, bank transfer is not the preferred way if you want to go immediately on air. To pay with bank transfer we suggest you to order by phone first, by calling +39 0942793988 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and after that pay with bank transfer. Or, if you want you can send us an email: accounting@xdevel.com telling us which product you want to buy.

Yes, you can upgrade your plan and pay the difference of the previous one. To do this you have to contact us by phone +39 0942793938 or by email: accounting@xdevel.com. You can upgrade your plan at every time you want. To downgrade instead, you have to wait the expiration of your current plan. You can check the expiration date in your personal area.

If you have bought the service directly via our web page you simply have to go to the Avangate web page (our partner for online payments), and log-in with your e-mail address. Here you can manage your subscription, cancel it or download the invoices.

In the case of the yearly subscription, regardless from the payment method you’ve chosen, the purchase will be completed in a single step during check-out. The monthly subscription will be paid every 30 days.

Well, this is a good reason to choose the yearly subscription: you don’t have to worry about expiry-date or service suspension. However, if you have a monthly subscription we will send you notifications via email 7 days and 3 days before the expiration date. You can also check your expiration date in your personal area.

Of course, simply use the new information during the check-out.
