I keep seeing posts on Twitter from quite a few long time users of SAM Broadcaster who constantly seem to complain about Spacial Audio support and not getting help from them.
When I asked one of the users on Twitter as to why he puts up with the crap customer support he said this …
“It’s not the software I have an issue with, it’s the appalling customer service”
So you’re not having any issues with SAM Broadcaster? Just Spacial audio customer service?

We’ve had grief again for promoting RadioDJ, and dispelling a few myths about it too.
It’s almost as if certain sections of the Internet radio crowd see RadioDJ as a threat?!
“We also realise that certain people in the world of online radio don’t like this website/blog because of our posts about SAM Broadcaster and its many issues”

I saw 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 Fraunhofer the people behind AAC encoding technology seem to think Altacast is breaking DMCA rules. 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.

Saw this post on a forum on a post about RadioDJ free radio automation software.
“The biggest fail with RadioDJ to me is the reliance upon a MySQL database”
A: RadioDJ requires MySQL to run some backend functions such as Rotations/Playlists/Events
Having an MySQL database makes programming on your website (PHP) really straight forward, You can show what’s currently playing or recently played or even take listener requests.
The fact RadioDJ relies on a database for some of it’s functions is actually one of it’s PLUS points.

Saw a post on a forum where someone stated this:
“There is a cost for everything. Often what’s ‘free’ up front can turn out to be ‘expensive’ in the end (one way or another)”
Just wait one moment! Not everything that’s free is bad!
