Quickly Re-Enable All Tracks (RadioDJ v2.0.0)

How to re-enable all your tracks

If you store your music on an external hard drive, and accidentally fire up RadioDJ with the drive unplugged, this won’t cause a problem unless you also start playing, and you’ll quickly end up with a lot of disabled tracks.

This can easily be resolved with the database utility and a short SQL script.

One word of caution, this will re-enable all tracks, including any you’ve manually disabled.
  1. Open HeidiSQL log into your database and paste the following query into the query tab and click on the blue (play button at the top) to execute the query

Why I Hate Sam Broadcaster!

I got into Internet radio about 20 years ago when SAM Broadcaster had only just been released so by now I think I know the programs annoyances and quirks.

Whether it be the program crashing/freezing while trying to add music or the encoders buffering on me nothing ever worked as it should.

It got tedious having to constantly reinstall/reconfigure SAM Broadcaster after a crash. At first I thought at first it was a problem confined to my computer(s) but its gone wrong on every computer we’ve ever installed it on.

Spacial Discontinue Sam Broadcaster Mac

While doing my usual bits and pieces on the Internet this morning and I saw this tweet.

SAM Broadcaster Mac Discontinued

It’s been less than 12 months since they released the “Crossover” version of SAM Broadcaster for Mac.

I predicted it was going to be an unmitigated disaster when I heard they’d ported over SAM Broadcaster (Windows) to the Mac using Crossover.

It would appear I was right again.

RadioDJ & MSSQL?

This search term appeared on my stats recently…

“Does RadioDJ work with MSSQL?”

I guess by now the person who made that search will realise that RadioDJ only works with MySQL

Unlike SAM Broadcaster which has 4 different database options. The database in RadioDJ has been kept simple.

Reasons Why You Should Use Radio DJ

Reasons why you should use RadioDJ free radio automation software:

We could go on and give you more reasons like the account control, folder sync, request system, colour editing tool and the great support via the RadioDJ Community Forums

But the best reason to use RadioDJ is also the the first point I made.

“The program is 100% FREE for use by any DJ or any radio station”

If you’re not a Radio DJ you can use it as a home music automation system.

With RadioDJ you can backup the programs rotations/events/songs with a simple database backup. You struggle to get the database/events/settings backed up in other automation software.

At the moment you have to use Stand Alone Encoding software to stream to Shoutcast/Icecast but that’s still no excuse for not trying RadioDJ.

We ran RadioDJ successfully alongside stand alone encoders back when we were streaming.

Make the switch to RadioDJ free radio automation software today you won’t regret it! Lots of people are discovering just how amazing RadioDJ is.
