Handling RadioDJ Requests

Now RadioDJ has the ability to take listener requests from a website. I thought I would just do a small article on how best to go about handling RadioDJ requests within the program.

In order to stay within DMCA rules you need to delay a request for at least 60 minutes (Especially if you run a station in the USA)

Radiocaster: A Review

RadioCaster ($49.95)

Recently I went to try & test this piece of standalone encoding software from the same developer who codes RadioBoss.

It was easy enough to setup and configure. I had a Shoutcast stream going in about 3 minutes.

It seems like a decent piece of encoding software but I haven’t been able to test a stream properly because of a “voice” over the stream every so often in the demo.

Much Disgruntled!

Just been for a look on the Spacial Audio Facebook page.

Yet again it would seem that their customer service and software are still NOT up to scratch.

You can see by these two posts that this is one much disgruntled! customer.

What A Difference A Year Makes.

Text To Speech?

A user over on the RadioDJ forums put a feature request in for a text to speech plugin so he could have the computer do the announcements.

What’s so wrong about that I hear you say? I really don’t think it’s something a radio automation package needs.

Most stations tend to have their presenters voice track their shows. Which usually means that it’s all automated with nobody actually being there. No live presenters etc.

The Secret Is: Don’t Use Godaddy!

Just seen a post on the Spacial Audio/SAM Broadcaster forums where a user wants to set his request function up. The user states their website is hosted by GoDaddy.

That’s where the problem lies he will never get SAM Broadcaster requests working as Godaddy don’t have the SQL port 3306 or the other port 1221 open.

I’m sure someone will point this out to him eventually.

XP End Of Life 2014

So that’s it then XP is no longer being supported by Microsoft! Time to get that wallet out and upgrade your OS!

I cannot guarantee I’m likely to be able to help with problems on XP from now on either!

Hacker’s Delight: Support For Windows XP Ends

First question: Are you still using Windows XP as your computers operating system?

If you answer Yes to that question then I guess there’s no hope for you.
