You Have A Choice?

When it comes to radio automation software you have a choice…

“Do you pay $$$ for a program or do you download a program for free?”

Personally we’d rather have something for FREE. Leaves us with more money to spend on other stuff.

Nearly everytime we test the paid for automation solutions we come to the conclusion that some of the paid for offerings within the radio automation market just don’t perform that well as RadioDJ.

RadioDJ & Altacast Are Separate Programs

There appears to be some confusion about Altacast encoding software it seems people thought it was connected to RadioDJ.

Nope! Altacast is/was coded by a completely different person who seems to have disappeared off the Internet

Important: Altacast Plugin for RadioDJ will NOT function with RadioDJ v2.0.0 you’ll be stuck on v1.8.2 if you wish to keep using that UNSUPPORTED plugin.

This Program Is Provided “As Is” (RadioDJ)

I feel I need to clarify a few things to those people who keep demanding that I help them with RadioDJ setup issues.

I swear some people expect far too much from a free piece of software… It might help if they read the RadioDJ licence agreement

“This program is provided “as is” without warranties of any kind, either expressed or implied, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchant-ability and fitness for a particular purpose. The entire risk as to the quality and performance of the program is with you”

When something goes wrong with RadioDJ we don’t have to give technical help or advice… We do 99.8% of the time because we care enough about the software.

Sam Broadcaster Cloud (Outages)

We keep seeing posts from lots of frustrated SAM Broadcaster Cloud customers.

SAM Broadcaster Cloud outage 3

“On Saturday night all the Live DJ accounts went into ‘trial mode’ and we had to stop live shows”

It appears there have been several major outages on the Microsoft Azure platform hosting Spacial Audio’s SAM Broadcaster Cloud solution.

“We were back, then down again. Currently back. However, now we can’t access our cloud account. Shocking service, so unreliable”

One user had this to say on Twitter:

@spacial SAM Cloud has been hanging a lot lately. Today starting just before noon, there was three hours of silence before I caught it. This is not acceptable! please fix.

Shoutcast Now Playing PHP Script

Are you looking for a simple way to get now playing info from your Shoutcast server?

Click to enlarge

You will need an encoding program that supports title streaming in order for this to work.

Programs such as Edcast/MB Recaster/Radiocaster get now playing info from a text file.

Not all standalone encoding programs support text files therefore they won’t output now playing information.

1) You will need a PHP enabled web server with “fsock” connections enabled (Ask your host if they support this most good hosts do)
