We are now on version 1.7.6 of the popular free radio automation software Radio DJ
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
So finally after 2 or so years of waiting RadioDJ now has a working online request system via the new website templates.
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.
It’s not that difficult to setup the request system. If you allow port forwarding on your router & website or VPS.
Just point the serv_inc.php config file to your IP address and SQL database.
A tutorial for setting up Radio DJ requests can be found Here.
Radio DJ streams to Shoutcast/Icecast via an encoding plugin which can be found on the Altacast website.
You can find the latest version of RadioDJ by clicking on the logo below.

What are you waiting for give Radio DJ a spin today you may be pleasantly surprised by how well it works.
Should you have issues setting Radio DJ up help is available on the Community forums.
Now Radio DJ has request capabilities & encoding plugins no one will need to pay for radio automation software ever again.
So technically that’s Game over SAM Broadcaster!!
