Spacial Audio used to have something of a monopoly when it came to Internet radio playout software.
They thought they were the only radio software company that mattered.
20 years or so ago people wanting to run an Internet radio station had only one option and that was to pay $$$ for radio automation software.
SAM Broadcaster may well have been the No1 selling Internetradio automation program once upon a time, However RadioDJ v1.8.2 has been downloaded over 220,000 times making the software more popular than SAM Broadcaster by a country mile.
A: I couldn’t do a radio show without something going wrong.
I got into Internet radio about 20 years ago when SAM Broadcaster had only just been released so by now I think I know the programs annoyances and quirks.
Whether it be the program crashing/freezing while trying to add music or the encoders buffering on me nothing ever worked as it should.
It got tedious having to constantly reinstall/reconfigure SAM Broadcaster after a crash. At first I thought at first it was a problem confined to my computer(s) but its gone wrong on every computer we’ve ever installed it on.
Fired up the PC and looked at user searches on my website admin pages and I saw this…
“SAM Broadcaster virus infects RadioDJ”
It sounds to us like this person has downloaded & installed a dodgy patched copy of SAM Broadcaster off some torrent/pirate site which installed some malware on their system & is now interfering with the smooth running of other software such as RadioDJ.
