“Alternative to SAM Broadcaster?”
It’s always nice to see people searching for alternative software.
I looked at the Spacial Audio page on Facebook and couldn’t help but notice an angry SAM user venting about SAM Broadcaster.
I don’t need any more of your quick (BUG) fixes, I really thought you had a quality product? Oh well lots of wasted money and time and opportunity”
Just been looking back on various posts on my Facebook page from around this time 2 years ago…
I realised it was around June 2014 when we were first made aware of MariaDB an alternative to Oracle MySQL
Since that first install 2 years ago things have ran smoothly. We’ve not had to rebuild the RadioDJ database from scratch once.
Seeing posts from lots of frustrated Spacial Audio/SAM Broadcaster Cloud customers today. It appears there’s been another major outage on the servers hosting SBC.
A user had this to say on Twitter:
How is anyone supposed to run a radio stream successfully on a cloud server if that cloud server suffers with lots of problems and failures?
I saw a tweet on Twitter over the weekend (again!)
“How To Set Up An Internet Radio Station For Free? (SAM Broadcaster)”
Just seen another blog post from Spacial Audio about the reasons you should choose them or their software.
They start off the article with “Internet radio is most definitely on the up”
NOT from where we’re looking it isn’t! 1000’s of stations have gone offline already in 2016 due to the collapse of Live365.
