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.

Now for the easy part, configuring the firewall.

Quickly Re-Enable All Tracks (RadioDJ v2.0.0)

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.

Why I Hate Sam Broadcaster!

I got into Internet radio about 20 years ago when SAM Broadcaster had only just been released so by now I think I know the programs annoyances and quirks.

Whether it be the program crashing/freezing while trying to add music or the encoders buffering on me nothing ever worked as it should.

It got tedious having to constantly reinstall/reconfigure SAM Broadcaster after a crash. At first I thought at first it was a problem confined to my computer(s) but its gone wrong on every computer we’ve ever installed it on.

Spacial Discontinue Sam Broadcaster Mac

While doing my usual bits and pieces on the Internet this morning and I saw this tweet.

SAM Broadcaster Mac Discontinued

It’s been less than 12 months since they released the “Crossover” version of SAM Broadcaster for Mac.

I predicted it was going to be an unmitigated disaster when I heard they’d ported over SAM Broadcaster (Windows) to the Mac using Crossover.

It would appear I was right again.
