Sam Broadcaster Crashes!

I recently thought I’d install & see if anything changed with the latest version of SAM Broadcaster.

Sadly it hasn’t

I started SAM Broadcaster up, configured it, connected it to Shoutcast, pressed play and off it went.

I got called away to help a neighbour with something & I was only gone 10/15 minutes IF that.

They Said No One Would Read This…

It’s just a little over 6 years since I first started this blog.

I initially set this website up to let off steam about SAM Broadcaster which I’ve had no end of problems with over the years.

In that time I’ve also documented just how badly Spacial Audio have treated their customers.

Sam Broadcaster High CPU Usage?

Q: Have you ever noticed the amount of CPU/memory that SAM Broadcaster uses?

Users have reported that they cannot run SAM Broadcaster without the program taking up a lot of the CPU/resources.

“I’m running a machine with 2GB RAM and SAM Broadcaster is taking most of the memory and the CPU is up at 70%-80% making the PC sluggish”

Ever since SAM Broadcaster v2.x.x the program has always required huge amounts of the CPU/memory.

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 an online radio stream.
