Why Bother With Winamp?

I can’t help but notice that people are still using Winamp to stream their Internet radio stations.

Winamp Quinto Black Skin

While Winamp is a great little media player things have moved on since the release of Winamp 20 years ago.

RadioDJ Help Manual (V1.8.2)

One of the users of RadioDJ has taken the time out to put together a help manual for the program.

There’s not a lot to say about it. It’s a guide that covers the basics of getting RadioDJ up and running.

You can download it Here

Just unzip the folder with a program such as WinRar and open the RadioDJ Helper.chm file (by double clicking)

Its always great when other users take their time to do stuff for software… Thanks and credit go to Marshal.

**Update July 2017** Its appears the help manual .chm file isn’t opening correctly on Windows 10.

However we have now tested with Sumatra PDF and the .chm help file opened correctly in that

Some of the basic functions in RadioDJ have changed little in v2.0.0 so parts of this manual for v1.8.2 should still be valid.

When someone releases a new updated manual we shall post it on here.

Shoutcast Injecting Pre Roll Adverts

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

**Update: DJEgg posted this on the forums**

“We were testing the insertion of pre-rolls for one particular CDN (hosting provider) who’d requested it.
Unfortunately, in the process, pre-rolls for all registered DNAS stations was activated by mistake. We’ve now disabled it.
Thanks everyone for letting us know. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Monetization for DNAS is indeed opt-in, not opt-out”

 
This was happening to online radio station owners who are using the latest build of the Shoutcast DNAS.

Sam Broadcaster Crack? No Need!

A while back I wrote an article about the amount of tweets on Twitter there were with people offering cracked versions of SAM Broadcaster.

SAM Broadcaster

Over the past couple of years over 103,213 people have actively looked for a SAM Broadcaster patch/key/crack on this website according to Google analytics!

(We know all your dirty little secrets!)

If all those hits had been potential customers of Spacial Audio that would mean $30,860,687 in lost sales!

Nothing ever changes I see searches on a daily basis from people trying to get their hands on a cracked copy of SAM Broadcaster.

No Amazon Album Art (Sam Broadcaster)

If you own a copy of SAM Broadcaster 2013 to 2016 you might have noticed that Amazon artwork for songs has stopped working.

(It will also apply to some of the older 4.x.x versions of SAM Broadcaster)

This is because Amazon changed the way they allow a piece of software to look up album art, Basically they changed it from http:// to https://

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.

There’s A Reason Why I’m So Passionate About RadioDJ

Certain sections of the Internet radio crowd do their best to knock me because I happen to promote free software over paid for solutions such as SAM Broadcaster/RadioBoss

There’s a reason I’m so passionate about RadioDJ free radio automation software.

RadioDJ free radio automation v2.0.0

RadioDJ is the BEST piece of music automation software we’ve ever used (we’ve tested nearly all of them on the market)

We’ve used it since January 2011 now and don’t really have any issues with the software.

If there is an issue its usually computer hardware playing up (Hard drives are usually the main culprits)
