Just seen a post on the Spacial forums from a user using SAM Broadcaster Cloud to stream in Second Life.

He appears to be suffering with those dreaded “buffering” issues with the SAM Broadcaster Cloud broadcast control.

SAM Broadcaster Cloud Buffering.

“I came home to DJ and every time I login into SAM Broadcaster Cloud, and connect to broadcast, it just buffers, And buffers, And buffers some more…”

 
The user has stated that he’s restarted SAM Broadcaster, His computer, His internet router & everything else he could think of and the problem is still persisting.

That’s NO good is it?

How is someone supposed to do a radio show IF the software/cloud solutions decide they don’t want to play ball?

Buffering problems with SAM Broadcaster are nothing new.

Buffering happens all the time with the normal encoders.

The fact the buffering issue is also happening with the SAM Broadcaster Cloud control should be ringing alarm bells!

It seems the Spacial development team cannot get anything right when it comes to their software, they’ve ploughed headlong into getting the cloud based solution working that they seem to have forgotten to check if there were any bugs in the code they had added to SAM Broadcaster.

They appear to lurch from one bad release to another.

Our advice to this user: Forget paying $$$ to Spacial Audio for their products that won’t work. Get a refund and find another solution.

Things like this should NEVER happen with radio automation software!
