Standalone Vs Built In Encoders

Stand alone vs Built In Encoding software?

When it comes to automation software do you pay $$$ for a program that has encoders built in or do you use a standalone encoding program along side the automation software?

It seems like a decent piece of encoding software but I haven’t been able to test a stream properly because of a “voice” over the stream every so often in the demo.

Game Over Sam Broadcaster!

So RadioDJ now has a working online request system via the DEMO request template

Something SAM Broadcaster has had the ability to do since v1.3.

The song at the top of the playlist marked blue is one I just placed in the queue via my website.
