Radiocaster 2.4.0

I saw there had been an update for Radiocaster the stand alone encoding software from DJSoft.

radiocaster240

I downloaded and installed it to do a few tests again. Not much appears to have changed really since I last tested version 2.3.0.

The demo still has the annoying “Stream encoded by Radiocaster” popping up every few minutes.

We can’t really test something that puts audio over the stream now can we?

Sam Broadcaster Unacceptable Activation Error

Did one of my regular visits to the Spacial Audio forums just to see what the latest posts/gripes from customers were.

“I find these activation errors with this software absolutely ridiculous”

Spacial Discontinue Sam Broadcaster Mac

While doing my usual bits and pieces on the Internet this morning and I saw this tweet.

SAM Broadcaster Mac Discontinued

It’s been less than 12 months since they released the “Crossover” version of SAM Broadcaster for Mac.

People Are Not Mind Readers

OK so software is never 100% foolproof…

If the worst happens and something should go wrong when installing or configuring software and you ask for help on the software manufacturers forum it might help if you supply details of any error messages or crash reports when you post.

RadioDJ .NET errors usually look like this. Though it’s rare to see one once the software is properly setup.
