I saw there had been an update for Radiocaster the stand alone encoding software from DJSoft.
I downloaded and installed it to do a few tests again. Not much appears to have changed really since I last tested version 2.3.0.
The demo still has the annoying “Stream encoded by Radiocaster” popping up every few minutes.
We can’t really test something that puts audio over the stream now can we?
I’ve said it before to the developer of Radiocaster: Surely limiting the demo to a few hours streaming would be better for people to be able to evaluate the program? (Even the SAM Broadcaster demo comes with 51 hours use before you have to pay for the program)
One user recently asked on the DJSoft forums if in the next version of Radiocaster it was going to be possible to run more than 1 instance of Radiocaster on one PC.
It appears with Radiocaster v2.4.1+ you can now run multiple instances of the program if you install to different folders.
We couldn’t help but notice the price of Radiocaster has also gone up, It now costs $49.95 (up from $39.95)
While Radiocaster appears to be an OK stand alone encoding program, We come to the conclusion that you can achieve the same thing with other freely available encoding software.
