Important: Turn Off Windows Sounds

I quite often see newbie DJ’s asking how they stop the sounds from their PC going over onto their stream.

This is another good question & it’s really quite simple to fix.

Now Playing Text Issue (Radiodj)

Seen a few posts from people who are struggling to get RadioDJ to generate the NowPlaying.txt files.

To get RadioDJ to generate the text file you need to be running RadioDJ as “Administrator”

Now Playing Text

“Newer version of Windows won’t allow writing on C root drive if the application is not running as administrator. It’s not a RadioDJ issue, but a Windows security rule”

 
Don’t forget to set the location of where you want the program to generate the text file to. e.g C:\NowPlaying.txt

If it’s still not working try lowering your UAC (User Account Control) settings to the lowest setting. As has been said its usually a Windows security problem that stops it from writing the file to the location.

That is all there is to getting a now playing output which can be read by most of the Standalone encoding solutions out there.

Should you still have issues then try the RadioDJ community forums and explain your issue clearly and calmly.

Avoid Running “other” Software On Your Radiodj Machine!

RadioDJ free radio automation software v1.8.2

It’s since transpired that they had other programs/processes open when they had the problems.

How You Wire Your Studio Up Is Up To You

Yet again another new RadioDJ user complaining on the forums about the fact RadioDJ doesn’t have a built in microphone button.

People have already been told the reason it doesn’t have a built in microphone input is down to latency issues.

Sam Cast Fail

Reading through the Spacial forums this post caught my attention.

Screenshot from 2013-10-26 15:52:30

Yet again Spacial seem to be releasing software that isn’t fit for purpose.

They forced people into upgrading to the newer version of SAM Cast just so they could run the newer versions of the software on a new OS.

No software company should do that.

Instead they should make sure their software works on all versions of Windows.

Letting the end user decide what operating system they want to use.

If you need a stand alone encoder then don’t bother with SAM Cast.

It doesn’t support title streaming (Unless you have a degree in programming)

Simplecast was the same that never worked properly either that was prone to crashing without warning as well.
