Pay For PAL Scripts? (Sam Broadcaster)

Pay for PAL scripts?

This is another website that popped up on my radar recently called “PALScripts” offering paid for PAL (Playlist Automation Language) scripts and an SQL repair service for SAM Broadcaster.

Changing The Default MySQL Port (RadioDJ)

Changing the Default SQL port for RadioDJ:

When it comes to a SQL server running along side RadioDJ some users have found that their webhosts won’t allow connections to the default SQL port 3306.

If you need a specific port open for this to work it’s probably a wise idea to email your website host support department asking if it’s OK to use a non standard port for use with SQL. Otherwise you may get into trouble with them.

If your webhost doesn’t allow MySQL connections on a standard 3306 port then you need to get creative by changing the default SQL port in the SQL server program

Sam Broadcaster 2014

Now Sam Broadcaster 2014 is out of beta testing. They’re now on version 2014.3 and nothing ever seems to change with the program or the customer support.

I briefly tested it yesterday and the sound quality wasn’t a patch on RadioDJ. Mind the sound in SAM Broadcaster always has been dodgy.

If the 2 releases of SAM Broadcaster 2014 are anything to go by it’s just the same overpriced program that it has always been.

While trying to give help and advice to someone struggling to get MySQL talking to the RadioDJ web script the user let it slip that he’s still using Windows XP.
