Yet again I’ve been blocked on Twitter by Spacial.

I tweeted them a few days ago to let them know I was helping in the fight against cracked copies of SAM Broadcaster.

I’m not sure they took that tweet as it was intended.

Sheesh! What is your problem Spacial? I point out an illegal copy of your software on a file sharing site and suddenly I’m the bad guy?

(Bit like Corbyn and Trident I guess!)

I’m only trying to help fight the software pirates by pointing out there’s no need for an illegal cracked copy of SAM Broadcaster.

When there is a FREE “Legal” alternative in the form of RadioDJ.

RadioDJ Free radio automation download

(Click on the logo to download RadioDJ or right click and “Save Link As” to download it to your PC)

RadioDJ doesn’t require crack keys or patches to work the full program. We guess that’s probably what’s got Spacial rattled. The fact there is now a better free alternative to SAM Broadcaster.

Really you should be thanking me Spacial ….. NOT blocking me! It seems the people who man the social media feeds for Spacial really are paranoid.

They won’t enter into a conversation with anyone. Instead they just block the tweets/users they don’t like.

Oh just so you know Spacial I can still see your tweets & replies You’ve just wasted your time blocking me.

Shoutcast Now Playing to Twitter

Shoutcast Now Playing to Twitter

We used this script for quite some time and it’s a great way to tell your followers on Twitter what songs you are playing on your station.

It takes the now playing info from a Shoutcast v1 server and posts it on Twitter.

Please note: This version only works with Shoutcast v1 servers.

(If you require a Shoutcast v2 script there are scripts available on the Winamp Forums)

Basic instructions: What is required to use the script?

1) A valid Twitter account.
2) Setup an application & generate API keys from
3) A PHP enabled web server with an open @fsock connection (It won’t work without it.)
4) The The Twitter script files
5) Unzip the folder to the root of your website.
6) Enter all your API keys into the twitter.php file along with your Shoutcast server details then save
7) Upload all the required files to your server/website host.

Open the webpage in a browser to point to the twitter.php page (example: http://yoursite/twitter/twitter.php) If all has gone to plan you should see this.

If you have your own VPS setup a cron job to post to twitter as often as required


“If you don’t have your own PHP webserver then you can quite easily set one up on your computer with WAMP or just Apache.

Search Google for more information on “How to setup a webserver”

That is all there is to it. It’s not that difficult to setup.
