We wish we knew what people's problem is with free software...
We’ve had grief again for promoting RadioDJ, and dispelling a few myths about it too.
It’s almost as if certain sections of the Internet radio crowd see RadioDJ as a threat?!
“We also realise that certain people in the world of online radio don’t like this website/blog because of our posts about SAM Broadcaster and its many issues”
Don't shoot the messenger!
It also appears that some people can’t stand the fact we promote free software over paid for solutions.
It’s mainly the Shoutcast/Streaming hosts who have affiliate links to Spacial Audio from their websites who seem to get the most defensive.
They’re the ones who seem to protest the most and try to rubbish software like RadioDJ
We guess it’s because no one is clicking the affiliate links to buy SAM Broadcaster via their website.
Free software is not your enemy!
“The same goes for running a MySQL server that isn’t your enemy either! If you use MariaDB you’ll have very little hassle with your database”
We can’t stress this enough: RadioDJ works brilliantly compared to other radio software solutions that sometimes cost hundreds of $$$.
Once RadioDJ is setup and running the program automates music/promos/jingles as a well programmed radio automation solution should.
If you actually worked with RadioDJ (rather than against it) you would realise just how awesome, reliable and stable the program is.
The world of Internet radio is in turmoil at the moment and people are looking to save money where they can in order to survive.
So really you should be telling people about RadioDJ as an alternative to paid software. Who knows they might still pay you for your overpriced stream hosting services?
Seriously though, If you’re a stream provider and you see RadioDJ as a threat (Because you need the income from people clicking through to buy SAM Broadcaster via your affiliate links) then maybe just maybe it’s time to get out of the stream hosting business and get a another job to pay your bills!
It’s not our fault if RadioDJ outperforms other paid for radio automation software now is it?
Threatened by free software? Just how stupid do you want to make yourself look?
A wise man once said: The only people who have anything to fear from free software are those whose products are worth even less.
