SAM Broadcaster Crack! No Need.

A while back I wrote an article about the amount of tweets on Twitter there were with people offering cracked versions of SAM Broadcaster.

Since I wrote the original article it’s been viewed over 8,174 times and It seems nothing has changed.

There are still idiots out there desperate for an illegal copy of SAM Broadcaster.

You don’t need a SAM Broadcaster Crack!

When you have totally FREE software that doesn’t require keys or patches and that is RadioDJ free radio automation software.

If you have downloaded and installed a cracked/pirated copy of SAM Broadcaster STOP right there! It could be riddled with Trojans and other nasty malware. That’s the last thing you want on your computer! Trojans and viruses could be used to steal your personal information such as Bank details/Website passwords etc.

SAM Broadcaster is dodgy enough without adding a virus laden copy into the mix. Plus the cracked version will never work properly.

What we suggest you do is uninstall the cracked/patched copy of SAM Broadcaster from your computer making sure you delete the program folder as well.

Then you need to run a virus scan with a decent antivirus software such as Norton/Kaspersky/Bitdefender/Avast/AVG etc…

Also give your registry a repair with CCleaner which is another free program.

After you have done a virus and malware scan.

RadioDJ is a free studio automation package that works far better than a dodgy cracked copy of SAM Broadcaster ever will.

With various plugins for stuff like requests and streaming to shoutcast/icecast available for the program.

You’ll be thankful in the end when your computer isn’t crashing all the time because you have a SAM Broadcaster crack installed.

How To: Get Listed on Steamcast

How To: Get Listed on Steamcast?

I’ve known about Steamcast for quite sometime now. After seeing a forum post about it yesterday I tried setting up a server on the computer.

Even for someone with a reasonable knowledge of how to configure stuff I was stumped while trying to get it up and running.

After trying both the Windows & Linux versions of Steamcast I just couldn’t get the encoder to connect. I kept getting a “Bad Password” error yet I tried both the admin and DJ passwords.

Then I read a bit more info on Steamcast on this post on Broadcasting world

I then realised you don’t need a Steamcast server to be listed on the Steamcast website. You can do this quite easily through your Icecast server.

You just need to add this bit of code to your Icecast server configuration file.

You can find the copy and paste of the code Here

Just add it to the code to the .xml configuration file of your Icecast server.

Restart your icecast server for the changes to take effect.

If all goes to plan and your server is listed as public your station should be listed Here

It really is that simple!


Wot No Proper Web Address?

Recently I’ve seen a rise in links with people offering shoutcast/icecast servers and even links to software all using a .tk web address.

According to Stop forum spam .tk is a well known spammers way of doing things.

As you can see from the above picture this sounds like yet another fly by night shoutcast host. Who doesn’t appear to have a proper web address instead he’s got a .tk one.

When searching for a shoutcast/icecast host make sure you follow these rules.

1) Make sure the host you intend to use has a proper web address and email address.

2) Read reviews about them on radio websites such as Broadcasting World

3) Look at their uptime any company that claims to have 100% uptime is lying.

(99.9% is acceptable as no host ever has 100% uptime)

4) Don’t be afraid to ask questions before you sign up. Any company worth their salt will get back to you with answers.

At the end of the day you want your station to sound professional and you certainly don’t need a host who’s servers aren’t up to the job.

Remember a fool and his money are easily parted!

I certainly would never entertain any web host or server host using a .tk address to sell their wares. It’s not a proper website address.
