From the nicecast manual

Quote:

In the name of simplicity, not all of Nicecast's preferences are accessible from within the application. Some prefs can only be accessed through the "defaults" system in the Terminal or by editing the preferences file (~/Library/Preferences/com.rogueamoeba.Nicecast.plist) by hand.

Quote:

retryTimeIntervals: This preference controls the connection retry attempts, for Nicecast connecting to the server specified in the Servers window.

The example command below for the Terminal will cause Nicecast to attempt to reconnect once a second. This is not recommended unless you know it's needed, as it can overwhelm a server.

 defaults write com.rogueamoeba.Nicecast "retryTimeIntervals" '(1)'

The example command below for the Terminal will cause Nicecast to attempt to reconnect after 10 seconds. If that fails, it will try again 20 seconds later, and if that fails it will try in 30 seconds. After the third attempt it will continue trying to connect every 30 seconds thereafter.

 defaults write com.rogueamoeba.Nicecast "retryTimeIntervals" '(10, 20, 30)'

To reset to the default (which is 1,1,10,10,20,20,60), enter:

 defaults delete com.rogueamoeba.Nicecast retryTimeIntervals
