Saw a tweet from a SAM Broadcaster user having to reinstall the program after it had gone wrong on him and wouldn’t restart after a reboot of the PC.
We know how this user feels it’s happened to us on many occasions over the years. SAM Broadcaster goes wrong and crashes for no reason even in the newer versions.

Just seen a post on the RadioDJ forums from a long time user of the program complaining that the program keeps breaking on him.
He then goes to on to state that he’s never ran RadioDJ as “Administrator”
We think you will find that Marius tells EVERYONE to run RadioDJ with full “Administrator” privileges. Its not a RadioDJ problem its a Windows security rule.

In case you haven’t already noticed, SQL tends to allow some pretty insecure permissions by default, allowing root access from any computer.
This is a big problem, especially if you have port forwarding configured on your router to your SQL instance.
However, you can easily create new users using any management interface, so we’ll do it with HeidiSQL

I asked my partner to find out when we actually installed MariaDB on our PC that we run RadioDJ from.
We’ve had MariaDB installed on all of our machines since June 2014. Including any website servers its rare we have to do any maintenance.
Since we started using MariadB we’ve only had 1 maybe 2 issues with a database table becoming corrupted after a sudden shutdown of the computer.

RadioDJ is a free radio studio automation program for use by any DJ or radio station.
You can even run multiple Shoutcast/Icecast radio stations if you want using third party virtual audio cables (VACS).
It can also be used as a home entertainment system for music. (Which is what we currently use it for)
Yes! It’s 100% Free with no nasty hidden fees or catches despite what certain software/hosting companies try claim in their blog posts. No keys, activation or patches needed to work the full program.
Eventually there will be a paid for version of RadioDJ but the free version will still be available for those who require it
Yes RadioDJ should work on Windows 10 with very few issues. Unlike other radio automation programs that have “compatibility” issues.

We came across MariaDB after a user posted on the RadioDJ forums that they were using it with RadioDJ.
I have to admit I was surprised by how easy MariaDB was to install. It’s a lot more straight forward than the normal MySQL installer. Its not as fiddly as setting up MySQL server edition.
If you have previously had MySQL installed you will need to see this article about removing it as a service
1) Download the Maria DB MSI installer for your version of Windows Here
2) Open the file & Install and run when Windows prompts.
3) On the licence agreement screen check the accept box. Click next.
