Sam Broadcaster Unable To Send Data Fast Enough

Anyone who has ever encountered this problem with SAM Broadcaster knows how frustrating it can be when this error message appears in encoders window.

“Unable to send data fast enough Encoding paused until buffer clears”

When the encoders in SAM Broadcaster say “Unable to send data fast enough” It is NOT your internet connection or your computer at fault.

It’s a major flaw in the SAM Broadcaster encoders which has never been addressed.

If you do a search for the subject on the Spacial Audio forums.

The results extend to 28 pages with users being told that it’s a problem with their connection.

When it’s actually the SAM Broadcaster encoders at fault.

We’ve spent long enough testing other standalone encoding software options & they all worked as they should for days and weeks without buffering.

There is an easy solution to this problem.

1) Uninstall Sam Broadcaster from your PC.
2) Download RadioDJ & unzip the RadioDJ folder onto the root of the C:\ drive outside the programs folder.

3) Install RadioDJ as per These Instructions
4) Then you can install either a standalone encoder or you can install the RadioDJ Streaming Plugin

Hopefully you should have no more buffering issues with your stream.

If you do it might be worth having a word with your ISP support department to smooth out any connection problems with your upload speeds.

Also in the unlikely event of you running into any issues then there’s help available on the RadioDJ Community Forum

If you search the RadioDJ forums you might just find your question has been answered before.

No one should have to put up with the encoders in software buffering on them!

Standalone Vs Built In Encoders

Standalone vs Built In Encoders?

When it comes to automation software do you pay $$$ for a program that has encoders built in or do you use a standalone encoding program along side the automation software?

Don’t Stream With Spacial? No Support!

Just when I think Spacial Audio support can’t sink any lower I see this on the facebook page for SAM broadcaster.

A user is having issues with the encoders in the latest version of SAM broadcaster 2014 disconnecting on him every 5 minutes.

I’ve written about the Encoders in SAM being dodgy before!

Spacial support have come back to this user and said because he isn’t using their “Streaming” services they can’t help him.

Does anyone else see the problem here?

The user has stated that his stream host isn’t having any issues. Last time I looked Voscast had a pretty decent uptime.

So it seems yet again the problem lies within SAM Broadcaster and it’s dodgy encoders!

You know the drill by now: Don’t buy SAM Broadcaster or any software product from Spacial Audio.

Don’t Stream with Spacial? No support! when something goes wrong.

Sam Cast Fail

Reading through the Spacial forums this post caught my attention.

Screenshot from 2013-10-26 15:52:30

Yet again Spacial seem to be releasing software that isn’t fit for purpose.

They forced people into upgrading to the newer version of SAM Cast just so they could run the newer versions of the software on a new OS.

No software company should do that.

Instead they should make sure their software works on all versions of Windows.

Letting the end user decide what operating system they want to use.

If you need a stand alone encoder then don’t bother with SAM Cast.

It doesn’t support title streaming (Unless you have a degree in programming)

Simplecast was the same that never worked properly either that was prone to crashing without warning as well.

Game Over Sam Broadcaster!

So finally after 2 or so years of waiting RadioDJ now has a working online request system via the new website templates.

Something SAM Broadcaster has had the ability to do since v1.3.

The song at the top of the playlist marked blue is one I just placed in the queue via my website.

It’s not that difficult to setup the request system. If you allow port forwarding on your router & website or VPS.

Just point the serv_inc.php config file to your IP address and SQL database.

A tutorial for setting up Radio DJ requests can be found Here.

Radio DJ can stream to Shoutcast/Icecast via an streaming plugin which can be found Here

You can find the latest version of RadioDJ by clicking on the logo below.

What are you waiting for give Radio DJ a spin today you may be pleasantly surprised by how well it works.

Should you have issues setting Radio DJ up help is available on the This page

Or you can ask for help on the Community Forums

Now Radio DJ has request capabilities & streaming capabilities no one will need to pay $$$ for radio automation software ever again.

Technically that’s: Game over SAM Broadcaster!
