What A Difference A Year Makes.

This time last year I wrote a blog post about beta testing RadioDJ v1.6.3.2 and how I thought Spacial audio should be worried by the newer version of RadioDJ.

Text To Speech?

A user over on the RadioDJ forums put a feature request in for a text to speech plugin so he could have the computer do the announcements.

What’s so wrong about that I hear you say? I really don’t think it’s something a radio automation package needs.

Most stations tend to have their presenters voice track their shows. Which usually means that it’s all automated with nobody actually being there. No live presenters etc.

The Secret Is: Don’t Use Godaddy!

Just seen a post on the Spacial Audio/SAM Broadcaster forums where a user wants to set his request function up. The user states their website is hosted by GoDaddy.

Sam Broadcaster Request Server Security Flaw!

SAM Broadcaster Request Server Security Flaw! Yes you read the title properly folks. It seems the built in webserver that handles listener requests in SAM broadcaster has a security flaw in it.

SAM broadcaster is already a dodgy enough program without adding stuff like this on top! I saw this post on the SAM broadcaster forums last night….

Yes you are reading that post correctly. “I will need to check on that in SAM, that probably could present a security issue.”

Keep Calm And Use RadioDJ

Keep Calm and use RadioDJ

Spacial audio have a picture on their facebook page. They are asking their users to “Keep calm and use SAM”

I can assure you “Calm” was the last thing I was when I was using SAM Broadcaster.
