How Do I Add The Song Skip Or Rewind Function To The SoCast Premium Player?

The SoCast Premium Player has the ability to skip to the next song or rewind the stream. This functionality requires a streaming provider capable of providing this functionality (e.g. SoCast Streaming powered by StreamGuys). This gives listeners more control over their listening experience.

To set this up, follow these steps:
  1. Log into the SoCast Admin Panel 
  2. Go to Player > Radio Stream Settings
  3. Create or edit a stream
  4. Scroll down to the Stream Skip Options
  5. Fill in the stream URL for song skip and rewind from your streaming provider

Notes

All the stream skip and song rating buttons are now customizable in terms of being displayed or hidden. 

To provide the best user experience for the stream skip buttons, it’s recommended that they be used in sets, (e.g. rewind + fast forward, previous + next. )
