What is RadioDJ?
RadioDJ is a free radio studio automation program for use by any DJ or radio station.
You can even run multiple Shoutcast/Icecast radio stations if you want using third party virtual audio cables (VACS).
It can also be used as a home entertainment system for music. (Which is what we currently use it for)
Is RadioDJ really free?
Yes! It’s 100% Free with no nasty hidden fees or catches despite what certain software/hosting companies try claim in their blog posts. No keys, activation or patches needed to work the full program.
Will RadioDJ work on Windows 10?
Yes RadioDJ works rather well on Windows 10 with very few issues. Unlike other radio automation programs that have “compatibility” issues.
What are the minimum specifications to run RadioDJ on a PC?
RadioDJ runs on standard PC hardware with at least 1000 MHz CPU and 512 MB RAM, but hopefully your system will have a bit more than that to ensure everything runs smoothly.
What technology does it use?
It runs with Microsoft .NET and an SQL server. We recommend Maria DB for this, which is a fork of the popular MySQL database.
A quick tutorial on how to install Maria DB Can be found here.
If you have successfully installed MariaDB and checked to see if it’s running as a service via task manager (mysqld.exe) then you can proceed onto installing the database.
How do I Install the database?
Inside the Radio DJ folder you will find a folder called “Setup” inside that there is a file called “DatabaseSetup.exe” Right click and open you should be on this screen.
Enter the details for your SQL server.
- MySQL server = 127.0.0.1 or just localhost.
- MySQL database = Usually this is just “radiodj”
- MySQL username = Default user is usually “root”.
- MySQL password = The password you chose when setting up the SQL server.
After you have filled in the details of your SQL server click on Install database. if you entered the settings correctly you should then see “MySQL server online”
If all has gone to plan you can start using RadioDJ and start importing tracks.
