The Main Target Were The Hobby Users…

A station owner posted a feature request on the RadioDJ forums asking for a GPIO system inclusion in the software.

“Is possible to add GPIO to an event like a play/stop command it could be used turn ON/OFF channels on the mixer, Also I would like to have spots management and scheduling in radio DJ. It would be great for RadioDJ to have a Web interface from which I can import track/spots, scheduling, reports and other things or drupal modules”

Threatened By Free Software?

We wish we knew what people's problem is with free software...

We’ve had grief again for promoting RadioDJ, and dispelling a few myths about it too.

It’s almost as if certain sections of the Internet radio crowd see RadioDJ as a threat?!

We also realise that certain people in the world of online radio don’t like this website/blog because of our posts about SAM Broadcaster and its many issues.

Altacast No Longer Supported On The RadioDJ Forum

This morning I went onto the RadioDJ forums to see what was happening.

I saw a post from Marius the website owner stating that the Altacast sub forum had been removed.

“We were notified that Altacast is violating DMCA and as a result I will remove all related stuff from this forum.”

 
Marius went onto say this: “For support, please contact its author and don’t use our forum”

It appears Fraunhofer the people behind AAC encoding technology seem to think Altacast is breaking DMCA rules. Like its predecessor Edcast/Oddcast.

(Although we cannot find a DMCA complaint related to the Altacast website or software)

It now means support for Altacast Standalone/Plugin/DSP is somewhat limited.

For future updates you’re probably best keeping an eye on the Altacast Website

Be aware that future versions of RadioDJ may not support the Altacast plugin.

Which means you will have to find another alternative to stream with.

Update 2018: Altacast seems to be a dead project now there have been no updates since March 2016, the only reason there is still a website is because its hosted on a free hosting package.

Using Winamp To Automate A Radio Station?

Saw a topic on the Winamp forums from a user wanting to use Winamp Pro to automate the music for his radio station.

“Do I need a plugin to make playlists so it operates 24 hours? If so, which ones are the best? this is for music playlists but I want Winamp to never stop, It will actually be used for a small radio station.”

Radiocaster 2.5.0

I saw there had been an update for Radiocaster the stand alone encoding software from DJSoft.

Radio caster 2.5.0

I downloaded and installed it to do a few tests again. Not much appears to have changed really since I last tested version 2.3.0.

The demo still has the annoying “Stream encoded by Radiocaster” popping up every few minutes.

We can’t really test something that puts audio over the stream now can we?

Non-Profit Internet Radio Station?

Do you run a community radio station online without looking to make money from it? Are you a not for profit or community led Internet radio station?

  • Community radio stations are a type of station which does not have any adverts,
  • Is funded by investors,
  • Is run by volunteers,
  • Is influenced, owned by and operated in the community they serve

We believe that radio automation software shouldn't have to cost you the earth.
