Disable downloads

I am dj cj from 93.5 Sonic Mix FM on spreaker
http://www.spreaker.com/user/sonicmixfm and I would like all downloads
disabled on my account, so when I have a show on 24/7 I don't need to
disable it after each show because I'm not always there to do it and when I
have it enabled people can basically steel music by downloading it so it
would be a HUGE help if you could disable all downloads on my station so I
won't have to do it manually anymore!!!!

    Hi there,

    thanks for contacting us.

    You can disable the downloads by yourself from the edit page of your show.
    Click on the edit option and at the bottom of the page you'll find this option.
    If you have any problems, do not hesitate to contact me.

    Yes, I know I can do it myself, but I want to have a show running 24/7 with
    sam broadcaster and every time it starts a new show, I'm not always there
    to disable the downloads right away! It would be a big help if you could
    disable it permanently!

    I saw the "download_enable=true" thing in the mount point, can I do any
    anything that will make the download disabled after I broadcaster on sam,
    so it will do it automatically?

    We're working on it, but it's not fully supported yet.

    I really wanted to go live 24/7 today, so I was hoping you would have it
    done, and it would be a big help!

    Just, please let me know when you've finished it and it works, because I
    was really looking forward to going live all day, and I need the mount
    point so it will disable downloads or something!

    We've introduced an option called download_enabled to the Icecast mountpoint, that allows you to explicitely enable/disable downloads of tracks created with an external tool:
