I recently thought I’d install & see if anything changed with the latest version of SAM Broadcaster.
Sadly it hasn’t
I started SAM Broadcaster up, configured it, connected it to Shoutcast, pressed play and off it went.
I got called away to help a neighbour with something & I was only gone 5/10 minutes IF that.
When I came back the stream was silent.
I looked on the computer running SAM & an error message on Windows 7 said SAM Broadcaster had “Stopped working” you know, that really annoying error!
Nothing in the SAM Broadcaster error logs, Only this in Windows event viewer.
So nothing has actually changed with SAM Broadcaster then? It’s still prone to crashing without warning and for no apparent reason.
I’m surprised the Spacial social media feeds aren’t lit up with complaints about this
Why do people still pay Spacial Audio $$$ for software that clearly doesn’t work for what it was designed for.
I could understand people paying $$$ if Spacial Audio software worked as advertised but sadly yet again we come to the conclusion that FREE software outweighs SAM Broadcaster for stability & reliability.
I’ve yet to experience the same random crashing issues with RadioDJ free radio automation software.
I’ve used RadioDJ for around 6 years now I couldn’t ask for anymore from the program it does what it’s supposed to “Automate”
RadioDJ is far better programmed and will work for days/weeks/months without anyone keeping an eye on things.
That’s another reason why RadioDJ is far superior to SAM Broadcaster… the fact you can run as many radio stations you want with the software.
I’ve not seen that user whose running 4 stations tweeting that any of his stations are ever offline.
If you want great reliability, stability & just a great piece of software then you need RadioDJ
Download RadioDJ v2
(Click on the logo to download the latest version of RadioDJ or Right click & “Save link as”)
I’m just hazarding a guess as to why Spacial Audio’s social media feed isn’t lit up with complaints.
@spacial I downloaded SAM Broadcaster and it crashed several times. Anyone else having issues?
I’m guessing a LOT of people are switching software to RadioDJ
Oh and despite what Spacial may have you believe in their blog posts.
FREE radio automation software isn’t your enemy! It’s your friend!
If you haven’t discovered RadioDJ yet what are you waiting for? Download & Install take it for a test drive today.
You might just be pleasantly surprised by how good RadioDJ is and you’ll wonder why you ever paid out $$$ for software such as SAM Broadcaster in the first place.
