Saw a post on the Spacial Audio forums.
“Help SAM Broadcaster won’t open after reboot”
SAM Broadcaster going wrong is nothing new. In the past we’ve had to uninstall and reinstall the program after it went wrong and wouldn’t start up after a reboot of the computer.
This has happened to us on many occasions on different operating systems from Windows XP to Windows 7.
What causes SAM Broadcaster and it’s program files/database structure to become corrupted during a reboot of the computer?
Another SAM Broadcaster user said they had a similar issue and it turned out to be the core/gui .xml files being corrupted by an improper shutdown of the software.
This would always happen if the PC was suddenly shut down or a power cut happened.
“We found the SAM Broadcaster database tables also sometimes became corrupted after a reboot of the computer which usually required a complete reinstall of the program to reinstall the database”
It got tiring having to constantly reinstall SAM Broadcaster when it went wrong. I was having to reinstall SAM Broadcaster and it’s database at least once a month. Which meant having to import songs all over again (pain in the butt!)
This problem isn’t just confined to SAM Broadcaster it happens with other Spacial Audio software.
I did a couple of Google searches and it would appear a few users have had an issues with SAM Cast (Formerly Simplecast) and SAM DJ (Formerly SAM Party DJ) also not opening after a reboot.
So that says to us that Spacial Audio code “Bad Software”
“We’re almost certain the Spacial development team know about the issues with their software and we can’t help but notice that they seem almost “Blinkered” to the fact those problems exist
Why do people still pay Spacial Audio for badly written software?
Just get yourself more reliable & stable program such as RadioDJ free radio automation software!
RadioDJ is 100% FREE with no catches or nasty hidden fees just free software for use by any DJ or radio station. (NOT misleading!)
RadioDJ doesn’t crash like SAM Broadcaster is know to. It can be left alone for days/weeks without anyone needing to keep an eye on it.
We know of one user who hasn’t had to restart his copy of RadioDJ for around 30 months. Yes really he updates me regularly on Facebook
You can run multiple streams if you so desire. Another user is running 4 Shoutcast radio stations using RadioDJ.
“Say goodbye to paying $$$ for SAM Broadcaster as you’re only paying Spacial Audio to make even more bad software”
Future versions of RadioDJ may have paid for features but the free version will still be available to those who require basic automation.
