You will need an encoding program that supports title streaming in order for this to work.

Programs such as Edcast/MB Recaster/Radiocaster get now playing info from a text file.

Not all standalone encoding programs support text files therefore they won’t output now playing information.

1) You will need a PHP enabled web server with “fsock” connections enabled (Ask your host if they support this most good hosts do)

SAM Broadcaster PHP Security issues

SAM Broadcaster PHP Security issues:

Just had this brought to my attention on Twitter.

No I’m not bashing SAM again I’m telling people the facts.

Please Note: The report about the SAM Broadcaster PHP Security issues was NOT compiled by me.

The report was written by the guys on this Website

So you can stop accusing me of lying about the SAM Broadcaster PHP Security issues when the facts are there in black and white.

So now we know just how bad the security holes within SAM Broadcaster and it’s website templates are. I’ve written about the request system having a flaw in it before.

This could also explain why it randomly crashes and corrupts the database.

Spacial are probably aware of these security issues but not actually doing anything to fix them.

Mind then again SAM Broadcaster is written in Borland/Embarcadero Delphi so what do you expect? Of course there are going to be security holes if that’s how badly programmed it is.

This is yet another reason to stop buying software from Spacial Audio.

Save your cash and switch to Radio DJ instead the website templates for RadioDJ are better written.

Stop buying SAM Broadcaster you are only putting your computer or web server at risk.

Requested By…..

RadioDJ version 1.6.5.0 was released yesterday and what a release!

The program just gets better & better.

Now RadioDJ has a better and improved request system.

You can now Include the username of the person who requested the song in the stream title.

Something that you needed a badly written PAL script for within SAM Broadcaster.

You can achieve this by adding this code to requests under Options > Stream titles. Choose requests from the list and paste this into the box.

$artist$ - $title$ [Requested By $request_username$]

Don’t forget to click save!

There is also an option to include a message but personally I think that would take up to much space in a title stream.

The demo request PHP script for RadioDJ can be found Here.
