I recently went onto the RadioDJ forums to see what was happening.
There was a post from Marius the website owner stating that the Altacast sub forum had been removed.
“We were notified that Altacast is violating DMCA and as a result I will remove all related stuff from this forum.”
Marius went onto say this: For support, please contact its author and don’t use our forum.
It appears Altacast is breaking DMCA rules somewhere. Like its predecessor Edcast/Oddcast.
(Although we cannot find a DMCA complaint related to the Altacast website or software)
It now means support for Altacast Standalone/Plugin/DSP is somewhat limited.
For future updates you’re probably best keeping an eye on the Altacast Website
Be aware that future versions of RadioDJ may not support the Altacast plugin.
Which means you will have to find another alternative to stream with.
Update 2018: Altacast seems to be a dead project now there have been no updates since March 2016, the only reason there is still a website is because its hosted on a free hosting package.

I saw there had been an update for Radiocaster the stand alone encoding software from DJSoft.
I downloaded and installed it to do a few tests again. Not much appears to have changed really since I last tested version 2.3.0.
The demo still has the annoying “Stream encoded by Radiocaster” popping up every few minutes.
We can’t really test something that puts audio over the stream now can we?

Just seen a post on the Spacial forums from a user using SAM Broadcaster Cloud to stream in Second Life.
He appears to be suffering with those dreaded “buffering” issues with the SAM Broadcaster Cloud broadcast control.

It really annoys me when people try to make out RadioDJ isn’t a Professional radio automation program because it doesn’t have a Microphone input or Voice FX button like SAM Broadcaster.
RadioDJ had a microphone input back in the days of v1.6.0 and it has already been discussed at length on the forums as to why the newer versions of the software don’t have a microphone input.

Reading a topic on the Spacial forums from a user who’s having those dreaded Buffering issues with the encoders in SAM Broadcaster Pro.
The SVS volunteers on the Spacial forums are trying yet again to blame the problem on the user’s connection.

Pirate radio stations are nothing new they’ve been on the go since the 1960s with Radio Caroline etc…
“I can still remember two Scunthorpe DJ’s attempt at a pirate radio station. It was called WLNG & Broadcast on 104.9 FM on Tuesday and Thursday nights in the late 1980s”
There’s very little information about WLNG on Google just a couple of mentions in articles.

Internetradio can be a really great hobby to have, Once you get used to how everything works it’s great fun
Most people think setting up an online Internet radio station will cost them lots of $$$ but it doesn’t have to with the radio playout software.

With RadioDJ you have a couple of options when it comes to encoding software. Here are some of the alternative stand alone versions out there on the market.
Stand alone encoding software frees up the automation software to do what its best.
