Sam Broadcaster Lots Of Bugs?

Recently read a post on a forum where someone was listing the radio software they had worked with over the years.

When it came to SAM Broadcaster he had this to say.

“I don’t care what anyone says there is so much evidence that this piece of software was never intended for radio it is buggy and crashes and has no place in a radio studio”

 
We’ve had SAM Broadcaster crash on us more than once while trying to run a radio stream.

Sam Broadcaster Clockwheel Failure

Just seen a post on the Spacial forums from a user complaining that they have had a “SAM Broadcaster clockwheel failure”

“When a clockwheel failure happens in the program, SAM Broadcaster only plays station ID’s instead of playing music from the categories the user has specified within the clockwheel rotation setup”

 
This has been a huge problem with SAM Broadcaster ever since the early versions of the SAM Broadcaster 2.x.x series.

Why Is Sam Broadcaster Crashing?

Someone recently made a search “Why is my SAM Broadcaster crashing?”

We’ve also noticed these search terms pop up on our dashboard.

“SAM Broadcaster 4.9.1 crashes on Windows 10”
“SAM Broadcaster crashing windows 7”
“SAM Broadcaster crashes after one song”
“SAM Broadcaster crashes without warning”
“SAM Broadcaster Pro keeps crashing after a few songs”
“SAM Broadcaster keeps freezing”

We often see people saying things like this about the lack of stability with SAM Broadcaster.

“We’re running SAM Broadcaster Pro on Windows 7, It often crashes and sometimes won’t restart after a computer reboot which means we have to reinstall the program from scratch”

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.

SAM Broadcaster Unable to send data fast enough

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!
