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 10/15 minutes IF that.
When I came back the stream was silent nothing was playing.
@spacial You’re recent update of Sam Broadcaster keeps crashing on me unexpectedly, are you aware of it happening with other users?
I looked on the computer running SAM & an error message said SAM Broadcaster had “Stopped working” you know, that really annoying error!
So nothing has actually changed with SAM Broadcaster then? It’s still prone to crashing without warning and for no apparent reason.
“The SAM Broadcasting system has been downloaded & has crashed each time we have attempted 2 run a BETA test”
I’m surprised the Spacial social media feeds aren’t lit up with complaints about this
That’s saying they haven’t deleted the bad comments from the social media pages again
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
We’ve yet to experience the same random crashing issues with RadioDJ free radio automation software.
“SAM Broadcaster runs fine for about two to three days, and then, without warning, it freezes, and after multiple restarts and other attempts to launch, the only way to resolve it is to delete everything in the “Data Path” folder and start from scratch. This is getting VERY OLD, I have an engineer friend who has helped me set it up and helps me each time, but I’m sure he’s getting sick of this too.”
I’ve used RadioDJ since 2011 & I couldn’t ask for anymore from the program it does what it’s supposed to “Automate” and it does that amazingly well.
RadioDJ is far better programmed and will work for days/weeks/months without anyone keeping an eye on things.
“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
“I downloaded SAM Broadcaster and it crashed several times. Anyone else having issues?”
I’m guessing from download figures a LOT of people are switching from SAM Broadcaster to RadioDJ free radio automation software.
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 can be and you’ll wonder why you ever paid out $$$ for software such as SAM Broadcaster in the first place.
