This morning I thought I’d install & see if anything has actually changed with the latest version of SAM Broadcaster 2015

Sadly it hasn’t.

I started SAM Broadcaster 2015.4 up, configured it, connected it to Shoutcast, pressed play and off it went.

I got called away to help a neighbour with something & I was only gone 5 minutes IF that.

When I came back the stream was silent… Then I looked on the computer running SAM & an error message on Windows 7 said SAM Broadcaster had “Stopped working” you know, that really annoying error!

Nothing in the SAM Broadcaster error logs, Only this in Windows event viewer.

C:\Program Files\SpacialAudio\SAMBC\SAMBC.exe

“The SAM Broadcasting 2015.4 system has been downloaded & has crashed each time we have attempted 2 run a BETA test. Developing… #TeamDINO

@spacial I downloaded the 2015-4 version of SAM Broadcaster and it crashed several times. Anyone else having issues?

So nothing has actually changed with SAM Broadcaster 2015 then? It’s still prone to crashing without warning and for no apparent reason.

I’m surprised the Spacial social media feeds aren’t lit up with complaints about this

“That’s saying they haven’t deleted the bad comments from the social media pages again”

Why do people still pay Spacial Audio $$$ for software that clearly doesn’t work for what it was designed for.

I could understand people paying $$$ if Spacial Audio software worked as advertised but sadly yet again we come to the conclusion that FREE software outweighs SAM Broadcaster for stability & reliability.

I’ve yet to experience the same random crashing issues with RadioDJ free radio automation software.

I’ve used RadioDJ for around 5 years now I couldn’t ask for anymore from the program it does what it’s supposed to “Automate”

RadioDJ is far better programmed and will work for days/weeks/months without anyone keeping an eye on things.

“Gonna put that new PC to the test this year. Going to run and tweet 4 stations using RadioDJ on the same PC”

That’s another reason why RadioDJ is far superior to SAM Broadcaster… the fact you can run as many radio stations you want with the software.

I’ve not seen that use running 4 stations tweeting that any of his stations are ever offline.

If you want great reliability, stability & just a great piece of software then you need RadioDJ

I’m just hazarding a guess as to why Spacial Audio’s social media feed isn’t lit up with complaints.

I’m guessing a LOT of people are switching software to RadioDJ

Oh and despite what Spacial may have you believe in their blog posts.

FREE radio automation software isn’t your enemy! It’s your friend!

If you haven’t discovered RadioDJ yet what are you waiting for? Download & Install take it for a test drive today.

You might just be pleasantly surprised by how good RadioDJ is and you’ll wonder why you ever paid out $$$ for software such as SAM Broadcaster in the first place.
