In the unlikely event of the RadioDJ database going wrong due to a power outage it’s easily fixed using HeidiSQL
Saving your RadioDJ configuration settings is also easy you just backup the RadioDJ program folder to another location (USB Drive/External Drive) after you have all your settings the way you want them.
It’s rare for RadioDJ to actually crash or go wrong.
We can honestly say hand on heart that we’ve never had RadioDJ crash on us while recording a show/mix or even during a live show in the 5+ years since we discovered the program.
The smart DJ’s and radio station owners are now starting to steer away from using SAM Broadcaster.
This search query popped up recently on my dashboard under user searches.
“How to Crack SAM Broadcaster”?
A: You don’t need to crack SAM Broadcaster! You will never be able to fully crack or alter a DEMO version of SAM Broadcaster!
The Spacial Audio Wiki says this:
“The user zone is the ONLY place where you can download a FULL version of the software that can be unlocked via a registration key. DEMO versions of the software can not be unlocked, even if you have a valid key.”
So step away from those torrent/pirate software sites and just download RadioDJ for FREE! (Yes really)
RadioDJ doesn’t require a patch/key/crack to unlock the benefits of the full program.
There are NO hidden fees or nasty contracts/subscriptions with RadioDJ,
Just seen a post on the RadioDJ forums from a long time user of the program complaining that the program keeps breaking on him.
“My install(s) of RadioDJ have been breaking. I have had to reinstall and redo all of the install(s) over the past 2 weeks. My track rotations seem to burp and ignore the music and just play VT’s or Sweepers. I am not sure what the heck is going on but it is becoming a pain in the rump. I am wondering if it is my SQL?”
He then goes to on to state that he’s never ran RadioDJ as “Administrator”
“Never have had to start it as an admin ever. That is something Marius has never stated here to do.”
We think you will find that Marius tells EVERYONE to run RadioDJ with full “Administrator” privileges. Its not a RadioDJ problem its a Windows security rule.
Being a long term user of RadioDJ you’d have thought he would have already known this?
You need to run the program as administrator for it work properly otherwise it’s going to cause you “issues” somewhere along the line.
It’s simple enough to mark the RadioDJ.exe with administrator privileges.
TIP: Right Click on the RadioDJ.exe file go to Properties>Shortcut>Advanced>Tick the box that says “Run as Administrator”>Apply>OK & close
That way RadioDJ will always run as administrator when you start the program.
The original problem may indeed lie with the fact this user wasn’t running the program as advised.
PEBKAC (Problem Exists between keyboard and chair)
We’ve always ran RadioDJ as advised and we rarely have any of the “issues” this user has described. I also suspect that the version of MySQL this user is using maybe the root cause of some of their problems as well.
It might be time to upgrade your SQL server to MariaDB?
We’ve had MariaDB installed for over a year now and it’s rare for us to have a problem with our database server.
If you’re not willing to take simple advice like this onboard then you really must have a small amount of knowledge about computers full stop.
“If you don’t have the option to run a program in administrator mode then you may need to ask an IT specialist or even your parents for advice.
Running RadioDJ as administrator isn’t exactly rocket science now is it?
Q: Have you ever wanted to start your own online Internet radio station?
Internet radio can be a really great hobby to have, Once you get used to how everything works it’s great fun. It can be daunting at first but don’t be afraid of searching Google or radio forums for tips and advice.
Most people think setting up an online Internet radio station will cost them lots of $$$.
It need not cost you anything to initially setup your own online radio station. (Not misleading!)
Yes you heard that right! You can start your Internet radio station for FREE with RadioDJ (Yes it’s really FREE)
You will need a decent PC with minimum of 1GB RAM and a decent broadband connection in order to stream successfully.
RadioDJ is a fully fledged radio studio automation package which once installed and configured works rather well at automating music/jingles/promos, Which of course is what the program was designed to do.
RadioDJ can be left alone for long periods of time to do what it does best.
