Auto Start No!

Auto start? No!

I think one of my biggest bug bears about websites has to be audio/video players on the main page auto starting without any warning.

Just clicked on a page from a radio station listing website & the radio stream started playing automatically.

What Database Issues? (MariaDB)

We’ve had MariaDB installed on all of our machines since June 2014. Including our website server & its rare we have to do any maintenance.

Since we started using MariaDB we’ve not had that many issues with database tables becoming corrupted. The database chugs along nicely day after day.

We’ve had to repair a database table ONCE because of a sudden shutdown of the PC. We had a Power Cut which is rare.

Nothing Ever Changes (Spacial Audio/Sam Broadcaster)

I recently managed to get my hands on a copy of a newer version of SAM Broadcaster Pro.

I only had it open for 15 minutes before it did one of it’s infamous disappearing acts.

Yep it’s still doing what it’s always done crashing without warning.

Spacial Audio are utterly clueless when it comes to software coding that much is clear.

We made the switch to RadioDJ back in 2010 after SAM went horribly wrong on us.

RadioDJ free radio automation software internet radio

Works on Windows 7/8/10 with at least .NET 3.5 & 4.6.1 installed

How To Install RadioDJ

RadioDJ shouldn’t crash or break like SAM Broadcaster does so often when you least want it or need it to.

However should you require HELP then just log onto the RadioDJ community forums where one of the many Volunteers will come to your aid.

The Secret Is: Don’t Use Godaddy!

Just seen a post on the Spacial Audio/SAM Broadcaster forums where a user wants to set his request function up. The user states their website is hosted by GoDaddy.

That’s where the problem lies he will never get SAM Broadcaster requests working as Godaddy don’t have the SQL port 3306 or the other port 1221 open.

I’m sure someone will point this out to him eventually.

Cloud Hosting Is It Worth It?

We’ve recently noticed companies like Spacial Audio, RadioJar, Radio.co, DJSoft (Radioboss) offering packages that enable you to run a radio station in the cloud.

The question is are they are actually worth paying out for?
