Every now and then I see users having database issues with RadioDJ. Then in the next sentence they then mention they are using a remote MySQL database.
Trying to run RadioDJ with a remote database is a really bad idea to start with. All you need is the slightest connection problem or packet loss and bang it will freeze the program.
A database running on the same machine is a lot better for performance among other things. If you need to access the SQL database from outside (i.e request page) then all you need to do is make sure that port 3306 is open on your computer firewall and router.
If you do run RadioDJ with a remote database please don’t start kicking and screaming because something isn’t working right.
Just been for my daily snoop on the Spacial audio forums and yet again it doesn’t make for good reading.
“I had sent an email to Spacial Audio tech support last week to ask about rolling back to version 4.x.x if for some reason I had a problem with v2014.1 and their reply was: “once (sic) you converted to 2014 you cant rollback to version 4.x.x
This user has already paid for version 4.x.x and is now being told by Spacial Audio support that he cannot use a version of SAM Broadcaster he paid for in the event of him wanting to switch back.
Not only is this bad customer service it is also “dishonest” IMHO!
I wouldn’t mind so much but this comes just a few weeks after Spacial promised to start giving better support.
Goes to show they haven’t changed.
I’ve just come across this comment on Facebook. This guy doesn’t sound to happy.
My message as always:
“Beware Spacial Audio! It seems they don’t give a damn about their customer base and only want you for the $$$ you part with. They have a nasty habit of telling LIES just to sell their shoddy software. Do NOT buy software from Spacial Audio you will regret it”
Instead why not use something like RadioDJ free radio automation software.
I absolutley love the users of the RadioDJ forums, But I love those who have come from using SAM broadcaster even more!
Isn’t it nice when someone says this??
As you can see from the above picture this user in particular has really nailed it on the head about RadioDJ. A friendly and helpful forum and people willing to help each other isn’t something that can be said for certain other software forums.
If you haven’t made the switch from SAM broadcaster to RadioDJ yet.
What are you waiting for? You’ll be a lot happier in the long run.
This morning the latest full working version of RadioDJ was released. It’s been just over a year since we started beta testing and now we have what is truly a great automation program.
I will get round to doing a page dedicated to RadioDJ and how to use it sometime soon. For now I’m busy just enjoying this latest release of RDJ!
A full FREE download can be found here Here . Just unzip to the C:\ drive outside the program folder. Install the database and import tracks and your away. You will never need to pay Spacial audio for SAM Broadcaster ever again!
