Looking at the Spacial Audio Facebook page and shaking my head in disbelief at the latest posts from frustrated users.
“How am I supposed to build an audience when your servers just drop out for no reason, at the very moment your service department leaves for the weekend?! This happens over and over, and no one had offered a solution or even answered me as to why!
I sincerely regret spending my money on the SAM Cloud product. Can anyone recommend a more reliable service, or at least one who understands that radio stations don’t take the weekend off?”
Seen a few posts from people who are struggling to get RadioDJ to generate the NowPlaying.txt files.
To get RadioDJ to generate the text file you need to be running RadioDJ as “Administrator”
“Newer version of Windows won’t allow writing on C root drive if the application is not running as administrator. It’s not a RadioDJ issue, but a Windows security rule”
Don’t forget to set the location of where you want the program to generate the text file to. e.g C:\NowPlaying.txt
If it’s still not working try lowering your UAC (User Account Control) settings to the lowest setting. As has been said its usually a Windows security problem that stops it from writing the file to the location.
That is all there is to getting a now playing output which can be read by most of the Standalone encoding solutions out there.
