Radiocaster 2.5.0

I saw there had been an update for Radiocaster the stand alone encoding software from DJSoft.

Radio caster 2.5.0

I downloaded and installed it to do a few tests again. Not much appears to have changed really since I last tested version 2.3.0.

The demo still has the annoying “Stream encoded by Radiocaster” popping up every few minutes.

We can’t really test something that puts audio over the stream now can we?

Configuring The Windows Firewall

Configuring your firewall

If you’re just running RadioDJ with no webpage linked to the RadioDJ database, then you probably don’t want to add any exceptions to your firewall.

If you’re using a request system and need this extra functionality, you’ll first of all need to make sure your web host has the right ports open. Without this, there’s no point proceeding any further on this article. Check the database utility > Database installation tab. You’ll see the IP address of your server in the MySQL Server box. If there’s a colon followed by more numbers at the end, this is your port number. If there’s no colon, you’re probably using the default port 3306.

You’ll also need to configure port forwarding on your router as well, google the manufacturer’s instruction manual for this bit.

How to re-enable all your tracks

If you store your music on an external hard drive, and accidentally fire up RadioDJ with the drive unplugged, this won’t cause a problem unless you also start playing, and you’ll quickly end up with a lot of disabled tracks.

This can easily be resolved with the database utility and a short SQL script.

One word of caution, this will re-enable all tracks, including any you’ve manually disabled.
  1. Open the database utility and take a quick backup (as we’re updating your database directly)
  2. Select the Run SQL Query tab and paste the following into the top section
