Shoutcast listings

“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.

How Am I Supposed To Build An Audience?

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 Broadcaster Cloud product. Can anyone recommend a more reliable service, or at least one who understands that radio stations don’t take the weekend off?”

Did I Say Spacial Audio Support Were Clueless?

We knew Spacial Audio support were utterly useless but we didn’t know they were totally CLUELESS as well.

A user having an activation issue with SAM Broadcaster has posted on the SAM Broadcaster forums hoping to get help as support seem to have “gone quiet” in his words.

“I’ve tried tech support but suddenly getting no more replies from them. I changed PC’s a few weeks ago and had to reinstall Sam Broadcaster Pro. After reinstallation, I activated successfully but suddenly started getting the error message: “Product Activation Failed” and “License Warning”.

Spacial support also asked me to uninstall the MySQL server as well as SAM Broadcaster and reinstall them in new directories. I’ve done everything they advised and the problem is still there, very frustrating and stressful, starting to get disillusioned with the program. The worst part is the tech support person just went quiet”

Users shouldn’t be having activation headaches with software especially if they’re about to do a live show on the Internet. God forbid they should actually want to stream a station.

Running RadioDJ As “administrator”?

When it comes to getting the best out of RadioDJ it’s usually recommended you run the program as “Administrator”

Tip: RadioDJ won’t see networked drives on Windows 10 if its running as Administrator you may have to run it without elevated privileges if you want to use network drives

RadioDJ run as administrator

Although some people don’t appear to grasp the fact that it sometimes needs to be ran that way.

“That was a lame post there’s no reason to be telling people to run it as an administrator”

We think you’ll find there’s every need to tell people to run RadioDJ as “Administrator”
