Threatened by free software?

We wish we knew what people's problem is with free software...

We’ve had grief again for promoting RadioDJ, and dispelling a few myths about it too.

It’s almost as if certain sections of the Internet radio crowd see RadioDJ as a threat?!

We also realise that certain people in the world of online radio don’t like this website/blog because of our posts about SAM Broadcaster and its many issues.

Why does RadioDJ rely on a MYSQL database?

Saw this post on a forum on a post about RadioDJ free radio automation software.

“The biggest fail with RadioDJ to me is the reliance upon a MySQL database”

So Why does RadioDJ rely on a MYSQL database?

RadioDJ requires MySQL to run some backend functions such as Rotations/Playlists/Events and even listener requests.

The fact RadioDJ relies on an SQL database for some of it’s functions is actually one of it’s PLUS points.

Installing RadioDJ on a new machine

Recently a couple of users of RadioDJ free radio automation software asked how they should go about transferring the RadioDJ settings to a new computer.

Configuring the Windows firewall

Configuring your firewall

If you’re just running RadioDJ with no webpage linked to the RadioDJ database, then you probably don’t want to add any exceptions to your firewall.

If you’re using a request system and need this extra functionality, you’ll first of all need to make sure your web host has the right ports open. Without this, there’s no point proceeding any further on this article. Check the database utility > Database installation tab. You’ll see the IP address of your server in the MySQL Server box. If there’s a colon followed by more numbers at the end, this is your port number. If there’s no colon, you’re probably using the default port 3306.

You’ll also need to configure port forwarding on your router as well, google the manufacturer’s instruction manual for this bit.

Now for the easy part, configuring the firewall.

RadioDJ & MSSQL?

This search term appeared on my stats over the past few days.

“radiodj & mssql”

 

I guess by now the person who made that search will realise that RadioDJ only works with MySQL

Unlike SAM Broadcaster which has 4 different database options. The database in RadioDJ has been kept simple.

We could go on and give you more reasons like the request system or the plugins for streaming to Shoutcast/Icecast.

But the best reason to use RadioDJ is also the the first point I made.

“The program is 100% FREE for use by any DJ or any radio station. You can run multiple radio streams if you so desire. Or if you’re not a DJ It can still be used as a home music automation system”

 
(Not misleading!)

We know of a RadioDJ user who runs 4 streams using the software.

You CANNOT do that with other radio automation programs such as SAM Broadcaster, Without it costing you hundreds of $$$ (4 × $299 = $1196) as they require you to have as separate licence per station.

RadioDJ Stable Database

It’s June 2014 since I last decided to rebuild my RadioDJ SQL database from scratch.

RadioDJ free radio automation software

In all the years I’ve been doing Internet Radio this is the longest I’ve gone without having to rebuild a SQL database.

Some of the credit for the stability also needs to go to MariaDB we’ve found it’s a lot more stable and easier to setup than Oracle MySQL.

When I used other automation software I was having to rebuild the database from scratch every other week as it was just so unstable and badly written…

Plus that piece of software didn’t have a backup tool so when the database went wrong you lost all your data which sucked!

The RadioDJ database setup tool takes a daily backup of your MySQL data and is easily restored if the worst should happen.

RadioDJ Database backup tool

TIP: Backup your RadioDJ database to USB pen drive so you don’t lose data should your PC go wrong
“The only issue we’ve had with the database in the last 18 months was after a power cut which caused some of the tables to crash and was easily solved using HeidiSQL to quickly repair them.”

 
Thankfully power cuts don’t happen that often where we live.

Other than that one issue with a power cut the RadioDJ database has been amazingly rock solid & reliable.

IF you haven’t discovered RadioDJ free radio automation software yet what are you waiting for?

RadioDJ is FREE for use by any DJ or radio station anywhere in the world and comes with no nasty hidden fees or catches.

It really is as you see it with no activation’s needed or keys required to unlock the full benefits of the program.
