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?

Reasons Why You Should Use Radiodj

Reasons why you should use RadioDJ free radio automation software:

RadioDJ free radio automation software

1) It’s FREE for use by anyone with NO restrictions.
2) Its a really stable program and works for weeks/months without a restart
3) Perfect sound quality with the built in sound processing your stream will sound great.
4) Easy to manage Rotations & Events for all your automation needs.
5) Amazing crossfading songs will mix perfectly together.
6) Great Music library support. You add and create categories as needed.
7) No keys required! RadioDJ doesn’t require a key code to unlock the full benefits of the program.
8) Great support if should something go wrong on the RadioDJ Community Forums

 
We could go on and give you more reasons like the request system or the plugins for streaming to Shoutcast/Icecast.

But the best reason to use RadioDJ is also the the first point I made.

“The program is 100% FREE for use by any DJ or any radio station. You can run multiple radio streams if you so desire. Or if you’re not a DJ It can still be used as a home music automation system”

 
(Not misleading!)

We know of a RadioDJ user who runs 4 streams using the software.

You CANNOT do that with other radio automation programs such as SAM Broadcaster, Without it costing you hundreds of $$$ (4 × $299 = $1196) as they require you to have as separate licence per station.

Make the switch to RadioDJ free radio automation software today you won’t regret it!

There are NO hidden fees/catches with RadioDJ just 100% FREE radio automation software that works.

(You can download the latest version of RadioDJ by clicking on the logo or right click & “Save link As”)

Don’t believe what we say? Then look at what others are saying about RadioDJ

“Say goodbye to paying silly money for Internet radio automation software”

We guarantee you 100% that once RadioDJ is Installed it will outperform other paid for automation programs.

Your Sam Broadcaster Subscription Has Expired?

Over the last couple of years now Spacial audio have gone with a subscription based model for the newer versions of SAM Broadcaster. Nothing wrong with that I hear you say…

“However should your subscription run out part way through the year, You are left stuck with the last version of SAM Broadcaster your subscription was eligible for & you would need to pay out $$$ all over again to upgrade to the latest version”

Winamp And Shoutcast Now Owned By Vivendi

I saw a post on the Winamp/Shoutcast forums this morning. It would appear Winamp and Shoutcast are now partly owned by a company called Vivendi.

“Winamp is back… in the hands of a major corporation: Vivendi has acquired a 64.4 percent stake in Radionomy, the European online radio services company that owns Winamp and Shoutcast as well as the online radio ad marketplace Targetspot.

 
Vivendi owns the likes of Universal Music Group, Canal+ and Dailymotion.

Stop Blaming Peoples Internet Connection

Reading a topic on the Spacial forums from a user who’s having those dreaded “Buffering” issues with the encoders in SAM Broadcaster.

Click to enlarge

The SVS volunteers on the Spacial forums are trying yet again to blame the problem on the user’s connection.

It’s NOT the user’s broadband connection, ISP or even shoutcast/icecast server at fault, It’s the encoders in SAM Broadcaster being poorly coded. The user has already explained that their Internet connection is working as it should…

The SAM Broadcaster encoders have failed on us several times on several different computers with different ISP providers, They even buffered while streaming to a local shoutcast server on the same PC. So it’s not someones connection at fault.

Even the old winamp DSP plugin encoders would suffer from the same problem.

DSP encoders

“It’s a long standing BUG in badly coded software”

 

SAM Broadcaster encoders disconnection

I’ve written before about the encoders in SAM Broadcaster buffering.

It’s nothing new there are still over 28 pages of posts on the subject on the SAM Broadcaster forums.

All of those users being told it’s their computer or Internet connection at fault when in reality it’s the software itself.

This is not an issue we’ve ran into using other encoding software. We never had a problem with buffering when we used other software to encode with.

We last used the Streaming plugin for RadioDJ to do a test with and it held up for well over 10 days without any errors or buffering.

We only had to restart the PC because of Windows 10 updates.

The encoders buffering in SAM Broadcaster is a BUG that has never been fixed and has been in the program since the days of version v2.7.7

We really do wish Spacial SVS support on the forums would stop blaming peoples connections when the encoders buffer in SAM Broadcaster.
