I’ve been collating stats from my WordPress dashboard again.
I wanted to find out how many people had viewed the SAM Broadcaster Key post on this site.
I’ll admit It gave me a shock after I added everything together and saw the figure.

We’ve been accused of “Making up” the problems about SAM Broadcaster…
“We’re not making anything up, things really are as bad as they seem with SAM Broadcaster”
The problems documented on this website and its posts are just a few of the reasons as to why we think SAM Broadcaster isn’t worth the $299 Spacial Audio charge for their software.

When it comes to Internet radio we find it’s always best to use properly ripped audio files.
You would expect those files should then show the correct duration in the audio software you are using.
Alas It would appear SAM Broadcaster has issues with the duration of some files.
One user has tried converting and even re-recording the tracks and the program still shows the incorrect countdown/remaining time.

It was June 2014 when I last decided to rebuild my RadioDJ MySQL database from scratch.
Its been upgraded through at least 3 different versions of RadioDJ and its database updates now and is still going strong.
“In all the years I’ve been doing Internet Radio this is the longest I’ve gone without having to rebuild a database”
Some of the credit for the stability also needs to go to MariaDB we’ve found it’s a lot more stable and easier to setup than Oracle MySQL.

When we see someone on social media having an issue with SAM Broadcaster we try and let them know there’s a better free alternative.
Recently we suggested RadioDJ to someone on Twitter and they came back with…
“Oh but I’ve heard RadioDJ is dodgy?”
Where people are getting the idea RadioDJ is “dodgy” from we don’t know.
We know of a few blogs posts from other software/hosting companies who try to make out RadioDJ is inferior because of the fact it’s free.

Fake Stats on Shoutcast?
A year and a half after this article was originally written I still don’t get it!
“Search term used on Google analytics “Buy fake shoutcast listener script”
Why is it that some stations on Shoutcast seem to want to fake their listener stats?
