RadioCaster by DJSoft ($49.95)

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


It was easy enough to install, setup and configure. I had a Shoutcast stream going in about 5 minutes.

I haven’t been able to test a stream properly because of a “voice” over the stream every few minutes in the demo.

Surely limiting it to a certain number of uses would be better than a horrible voice over the stream after so many minutes?

“Radio automation software creators have become so paranoid that someone will try and crack their paid for software offerings that they feel the need to resort to severely limiting the demo versions”

The way DJsoft’s software is activated has changed it requires online activation these days whereas before it was just a name and the key-code to register it.

Plus you can only run one copy of the software per computer so the software is useless for you if you’re planning on running more than one stream with the software.


Radiocaster seems like a well coded piece of encoding software but you could achieve the same with other freely available encoding solutions.

We think we’ll be sticking with the free encoding programs we found.

Some of the free encoding programs also support DSP plugins.
