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.

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.

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, RadioDJ is FREE (No catches/keys/activations) and is written in .NET

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

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