You have a Choice?

When it comes to radio automation software you have a choice…

“Do you pay $$$ for a program or do you download a program for free?”

 
Personally we’d rather have something for FREE. Leaves us with more money to spend on other stuff.

RadioDJ

Nearly everytime we test the paid for automation solutions we come to the conclusion that the paid for offerings within the radio automation market just don’t perform that well.

Now Playing Text issue (RadioDJ)

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”

Now Playing Text

“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.

Should you still have issues then try the RadioDJ community forums and explain your issue clearly and calmly.

Microsoft told me to remove RadioDJ??

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.
