Saw a post on social media from someone stating that their copy of SAM Broadcaster has been ‘fixed’? but now they’re back on air they have no listeners returning to their stream.
SAM Broadcaster costing station owners listeners is nothing new!
This has been happening with SAM Broadcaster for 20 years now. Sam Broadcaster seems to go wrong for NO apparent reason.
When SAM Broadcaster goes wrong any listeners you had will move onto another station or streaming media service while you’re off air ‘fixing’ things.
What’s worse is those listeners may never return to your stream and that’s the last thing you need when running an Internet radio station.
We quite often see reports of SAM Broadcaster crashing or not activating, But its rare for us to see people having an issue with RadioDJ free radio automation software.
Its worth noting that PAL scripts can cause huge memory leaks if they’re not written properly which in turn can cause SAM Broadcaster to crash and burn
RadioDJ is more robust than SAM Broadcaster and doesn’t crash and burn. We hardly ever hear of a station losing listeners on a RadioDJ stream.
One user of RadioDJ had v1.8.2 running for over 24 months. Don’t know about you but we’d call that reliable.
Its really easy to install, setup and use RadioDJ
SAM Broadcaster Pro has never worked as it was designed, We had no end of frustrations with SAM Broadcaster over the 10+ years we used it
We don’t have any frustrations using RadioDJ.
We can leave RadioDJ alone to automate our music stream every day of every week of every year. Something else we couldn’t do with SAM!
We were lucky to get through a radio show without something going wrong with SAM. It really is the PITS!
Save yourself the headaches don’t even contemplate SAM Broadcaster when choosing software for your online radio station.
SAM Broadcaster just isn’t worth the $299 price tag.
PAL = Playlist Automation Language (Based on Delphi)
