There appears to be some confusion about Altacast encoding software it seems people think it’s connected to the developer of RadioDJ.

Altacast was coded by a completely different person by the Nicknames of Dusty Drifter and SnowHow and it appears he has disappeared off the forums and the Internet.

The Altacast website hasn’t been updated since March 2016.

Marius the author of RadioDJ isn’t responsible for Altacast in any way shape or form. It was always a third party plugin

Marius removed the Altacast sub-forum recently because the software is thought to be breaking DMCA rules somewhere.

“We were notified that the Altacast encoder is violating DMCA and as a result I will remove all related stuff from this forum, For support, please contact its author and don’t use our forum”

So that means you cannot ask for help with Altacast on the RadioDJ forums. The moderators will most likely pull any posts pertaining to the software should anyone ask for help with it.

As always if you are having issues with the Altacast plugin then we suggest that you switch to a standalone encoding program instead.

There are some FREE encoding programs and some paid for it’s up to you which one you choose. Do your research first!

Having a standalone encoder allow RadioDJ to do what it does best – automate!
