Shoutcast Injecting Pre Roll Adverts

Woken up the news that Shoutcast/Radionomy were injecting pre roll adverts into peoples streams.

**Update: DJEgg posted this on the forums**

“We were testing the insertion of pre-rolls for one particular CDN (hosting provider) who’d requested it.
Unfortunately, in the process, pre-rolls for all registered DNAS stations was activated by mistake. We’ve now disabled it.
Thanks everyone for letting us know. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Monetization for DNAS is indeed opt-in, not opt-out”

This was happening to online radio station owners who are using the latest build of the Shoutcast DNAS.

There’s A Reason Why I’m So Passionate About RadioDJ

Certain sections of the Internet radio crowd do their best to knock me because I happen to promote free software over paid for solutions such as SAM Broadcaster/RadioBoss

There’s a reason I’m so passionate about RadioDJ free radio automation software.

RadioDJ free radio automation v2.0.0

RadioDJ is the BEST piece of music automation software we’ve ever used (we’ve tested nearly all of them on the market)

We’ve used it since January 2011 now and don’t really have any issues with the software.

If there is an issue its usually computer hardware playing up (Hard drives are usually the main culprits)

Help Someone’s Using My Station Name (Shoutcast)

Keep seeing posts on the Shoutcast forums from people running radio stations who state that someone else is streaming using their station name.

Shoutcast listings

“We heard 2 different streams under our station name, What is the source of the 2nd stream”
“Someone is using the same station name I want it removed”
“WTF? there’s a station with the same streaming radio name as my radio”

That’s the thing with Shoutcast people can call their radio station what they want and unless you’re a really big commercial radio station who has the money to get lawyers involved, There isn’t a fat lot you can do about it.

RadioDJ & Altacast Are Separate Programs

There appears to be some confusion about Altacast encoding software it seems people thought it was connected to RadioDJ.

Nope! Altacast is/was coded by a completely different person.

Important: Altacast Plugin for RadioDJ will NOT function with RadioDJ v2.0.0 you’ll be stuck on v1.8.2 if you wish to keep using that UNSUPPORTED plugin.

RadioDJ: 234 Days Without Restart!

Saw a post on the RadioDJ forums from a new user who stated he was restarting his computer weekly.

When asked why he was restarting his PC weekly he came back with this…

“It’s called “SAMitis”… Precautionary settings”

We’ve all been there, having to restart the computer running SAM Broadcaster every few days or weekly because SAM wasn’t working as it should.

With RadioDJ there is no need to keep restarting your PC weekly. It can run for weeks/months without restart.
