Shoutcast Injecting Pre Roll Adverts

Woken up the news that Shoutcast/Radionomy were injecting pre roll adverts into peoples streams.

Sam Broadcaster 2017

Saw a post on the Spacial Audio forum this morning stating that SAM Broadcaster 2017 had been released.

“However I don’t need to test it… Because I know it will still be the same infuriating POS that it’s always been”

 
They’ve not even added any new features its just fixes for things that should have been fixed in the 2016 versions.
