Does anyone here use Centova Cast? Do you recommend it? Any tips? Initially, I will just be doing one live stream from SAM Brodcaster.
Thanks!

Centova is first and foremost a solution for running and managing multiple streaming servers and resell them.
The automation stuff inside is a nice addon, but nowhere close to the options you have with SAM Broadcaster or SAM Broadcaster Cloud.

From my experience, Centova only makes sense if you either get it for free with your stream hosting or if you want to run your own stream hosting service.

It's a lot of work to set up Centovacast. You need a Linux dedicated server to install it. Doesn't work on a Windows PC.

Unless you have several stations you want to manage, it doesn't make much sense to install it for only 1 station.

Thanks! Is there a lot of configuration required once it is installed or is it just a lot of work to even get it installed? Or both?

Depends: Do you have experience running Linux-Servers or administering Windows Server Core on the commandline?
In general it should be pretty straight-forward to install the software if you're not afraid of the commandline.
It takes about an hour to set up on a cheap hosted VM Server.
Setting up shoutcast/icecast servers in the webinterface is a lot quicker if you know your way around.
If you need the AutoDJ features, best use CentOS or RHEL, they don't seem to do much testing on Ubuntu/Debian-based systems.

It takes only 5 minutes to set up Centovacast on a CenTOS server. It is self installing.

After that each SHOUTcast or ICEcast server that you set up is only about 3 minutes.

Easy Peasy.
