Game Over Sam Broadcaster!

So finally after 2 or so years of waiting RadioDJ now has a working online request system via the new website templates.

Something SAM Broadcaster has had the ability to do since v1.3.

The song at the top of the playlist marked blue is one I just placed in the queue via my website.

It’s not that difficult to setup the request system. If you allow port forwarding on your router & website or VPS.

Just point the serv_inc.php config file to your IP address and SQL database.

Radio DJ can stream to Shoutcast/Icecast via an streaming plugin which can be found Here

Explains A Lot About Sam Broadcaster

So the truth is finally out. We now know the reason SAM Broadcaster 4.x.x series won’t work on Windows 8/10.

Click to enlarge

It would appear SAM Broadcaster is written is Borland/Embarcadero Delphi. A programming language that most developers abandoned years ago.

Most software developers write stuff in C++ now or C# these days, That explains a lot about SAM Broadcaster

It’s also possibly why the program is so prone to crashing and hogging so many system resources.

We always knew there was something about the program being badly designed and thanks to a disgruntled Spacial customer it’s been revealed.

Who on earth uses Borland/Embarcadero Delphi?

It’s almost akin to using Front page for websites.

Our advice to anyone thinking about buying SAM Broadcaster from Spacial Audio is: DON’T DO IT!

You will only be paying Spacial to make even more bad software. Switch to RadioDJinstead.

Radio DJ is free and is written for .NET and works on XP/Vista/Win 7/Win 8/Win 10 & it doesn’t crash or whinge like SAM Broadcaster does.
