Winamp and Shoutcast Now Owned by Vivendi

I saw a post on the Winamp/Shoutcast forums this morning. It would appear Winamp and Shoutcast are now partly owned by a company called Vivendi.

“Winamp is backā€¦ in the hands of a major corporation: Vivendi has acquired a 64.4 percent stake in Radionomy, the European online radio services company that owns Winamp and Shoutcast as well as the online radio ad marketplace Targetspot.

 
Vivendi owns the likes of Universal Music Group, Canal+ and Dailymotion.

Now You Really Are Taking The Piss Spacial Audio

I saw SAM Broadcaster v2015.5 was available for download this morning.

So I downloaded it from my usual source. Haven’t had chance to test it properly yet but I’d imagine it’s just as unstable as v2015.4 was.

Stop Trolling Me!

Just a friendly reminder: If you’re going to attempt to troll me on social media or the internet get “your” facts straight first!

Troll Mad

I’m getting a little bit fed up with people having a go at me because of my views & experiences with a certain piece of software.

Ideas for Cheap Microphones?

This is a question somebody asked on the RadioDJ forums earlier today.

“Please could all of you give me some good ideas on cheap microphones I can use with radio DJ that will link into the soundcard of my tower”

 
We’re guessing this guy wants to just be able to plug a cheap microphone straight into his computer and have the audio from that go through RadioDJ

I posted awhile back about people wanting a Microphone input in RadioDJ to bypass the need for a mixer.

Some people seem to think the Input button in RadioDJ is for a microphone. That’s not what the input button in RadioDJ is for…

Whose Blog Is It Anyway?

OK People of the world of Internet radio can you all do me a huge favour?

Stop telling me what to think/post/write on this website and even social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook.

I’m getting royally fed up of people having a go at me because of my dislike for a certain piece of software.

It’s all getting a bit boring when trolls start hiding behind their keyboards to dish out abuse and vitriol.

Microphone Input in Radio Automation Software?

It really annoys me when someone tries making out RadioDJ isn’t a “Professional” radio automation program because it doesn’t have a microphone input or Voice FX button like SAM Broadcaster.

RadioDJ 1.6.0 Mic input

RadioDJ had a microphone input back in the days of v1.6.0 and it has already been discussed at length on the RadioDJ forums as to why the newer versions of the software don’t have a microphone input.

SAM Broadcaster won’t open after reboot

Saw a post on the Spacial Audio forums.

“Help SAM Broadcaster won’t open after reboot”

 
SAM Broadcaster stopped working

SAM Broadcaster going wrong is nothing new. In the past we’ve had to uninstall and reinstall SAM Broadcaster after the program went wrong and wouldn’t start up after a reboot of the computer.

This has happened to us on many occasions on different operating systems from Windows XP to Windows 7.
