Don’t Forget the Sample Rate

Recently started seeing posts from people on the RadioDJ forums saying they couldn’t get the Altacast encoder plugin working.

With an error message that looked like this.

It then transpired that the users concerned hadn’t entered the “Samplerate” when setting the encoder up.

In order to stream with the newer version of the Altacast plugin for RadioDJ you need to specify a samplerate.

The samplerate is usually set at 22050 or 44100 depending on how you want your stream to sound.

General rule of thumb: If the stream is 96kbps or below then the samplerate would be 22050 If the stream is 128kbps and above the samplerate should ideally be 44100.

That’s all there is to it just make sure you’ve set your Server iP, port, bitrate, passwords and server type correctly & you should be good to go.

Happy streaming!
