I see Spacial have released SAM broadcaster 2014.6 today for their registered users.
Changelog: -v2014.6 (11 Novemeber 2014)
* AAC decoding support.
* Fix SpacialNet encoder archive issue.
* SAMVIBE: Add support polling when Websockets fail.
* SAMVIBE: Encoder now automatically detect server changes.
* SAMVIBE: Synchronization improvements for Live Broadcasting window.
(Notice they can’t even spell November correctly)
As you can see it’s just more updates to do with SAM Vibe than actually fixing any of the major bugs in the program.
So far this year every release seems to have been over taken with SAM Vibe stuff rather than any new additions to the program itself.
The only major update is it can apparently now play AAC files.
A feature that had been asked for at least 7/8 years ago on the feature requests on the forum.
If it’s taking them that long to add new features then they really are taking the piss out of their user base.
You the user are just paying Spacial’s development team to be lazy.
It’s not like they’ve done anything major to update the software this year.
Users of the software have yet again have paid through the nose for a few minor additions.
This is why the whole yearly subscription plan with SAM broadcaster really does suck.
Stop paying Spacial for crap software & switch to a better FREE alternative like
Radio DJ FREE radio automation software.
RadioDJ works and is proven to be more stable than SAM broadcaster.
