Keep seeing posts on the Shoutcast forums from people running radio stations who state that someone else is streaming using their station name.
“We heard 2 different streams under our station name, What is the source of the 2nd stream”
“Someone is using the same station name I want it removed”
“WTF? there’s a station with the same streaming radio name as my radio”
That’s the thing with Shoutcast people can call their radio station what they want and unless you’re a really big commercial radio station who has the money to get lawyers involved, There isn’t a fat lot you can do about it.
Seen a couple of posts recently on social media from radio station owners & DJ’s all stating they couldn’t do their shows.
“I won’t be on air this week I just hope SAM Broadcaster doesn’t fuck up on me again next week”
“No live show tonight we’re off air until further notice we need to repair SAM Broadcaster”
“Kind of nervous for my show tonight hopefully they can solve this SAM Broadcaster problem”
“Won’t be doing my live show tonight SAM Broadcaster won’t co-operate”
“Won’t be broadcasting today sorry SAM Broadcaster is playing up because of an error”
Looking at the Spacial Audio Facebook page and shaking my head in disbelief at the latest posts from frustrated users.
“How am I supposed to build an audience when your servers just drop out for no reason, at the very moment your service department leaves for the weekend?! This happens over and over, and no one had offered a solution or even answered me as to why!
I sincerely regret spending my money on the SAM Cloud product. Can anyone recommend a more reliable service, or at least one who understands that radio stations don’t take the weekend off?”
