This program is provided “as is” (RadioDJ)

I feel I need to clarify a few things to those people who keep demanding that I help them with RadioDJ setup issues.

I swear some people expect far too much from a free piece of software… It might help if they read the RadioDJ licence agreement

“This program is provided “as is” without warranties of any kind, either expressed or implied, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchant-ability and fitness for a particular purpose. The entire risk as to the quality and performance of the program is with you”

 
When something goes wrong with RadioDJ we don’t have to give technical help or advice… We do 99.8% of the time because we care enough about the software.

Beware thecheapsoftware.com

I keep seeing Tweets from people with links to a Youtube video for SAM Broadcaster.

SAMbroadcaster20166

“In the description of the video there’s the usual blurb about SAM Broadcaster Pro and links to a website http://thecheapsoftware.com/sambcpro”

 
When you click on the links below the video they take you to the Spacial Audio website.

So in turn the cheap software web address is a marketing ploy to shift copies of SAM Broadcaster 2016.

Shoutcast now playing PHP script

Are you looking for a simple way to get now playing info from your Shoutcast server?

Click to enlarge

You will need an encoding program that supports title streaming in order for this to work.

Programs such as Edcast/MB Recaster/Radiocaster get now playing info from a text file.

Not all standalone encoding programs support text files therefore they won’t output now playing information.

1) You will need a PHP enabled web server with “fsock” connections enabled (Ask your host if they support this most good hosts do)
