Seen a couple of posts recently from radio station owners & DJ’s all stating they couldn’t do their shows.
“No live show tonight we’re off air until further notice we need to repair SAM Broadcaster”
“Kind of nervous for my show tonight hopefully they can solve this SAM Broadcaster problem”
“Won’t be doing my live show tonight SAM Broadcaster won’t co-operate”
Do any of those sound familiar? SAM Broadcaster crashing and taking a station/stream off air is nothing new!
The program used to crash on me quite often during a live show when I used the software.
Which ended up losing me a regular slot on an Internet radio station.
It got tedious rebuilding the database and program settings after a crash.
The database being flaky was just one of the biggest annoyances with SAM Broadcaster.
If you’ve spent time rebuilding your SAM Broadcaster database after a crash we know how painful it is to have that happen to you.
Even trying to run a stream myself using SAM Broadcaster was a painful experience.
Aside from the program crashing or going wrong the encoders would buffer without warning even on a stable connection with a decent upload speed.
It’s almost 5 years now since I stopped using SAM Broadcaster and started using RadioDJ free radio automation software.
We have yet to have a problem with RadioDJ it’s really stable and reliable and won’t crash during a show.
We take daily database backups and we’ve yet to actually restore the database from a backup.
(Unless it was a new installation of RadioDJ)
We just don’t have the errors or headaches with RadioDJ that we used to have with SAM Broadcaster.
If SAM Broadcaster isn’t working for you we suggest you make the switch to RadioDJ.
RadioDJ is far more stable & reliable than SAM Broadcaster ever could be.
You’ll have more time to concentrate on the important stuff like being able to do radio shows.
Without having to worry about software going wrong on you.
