I can’t help but notice that people are still using Winamp to stream their Internet radio stations.

While Winamp is a great little media player things have moved on since the release of Winamp 20 or so years ago.

There is now better software than Winamp to stream your Internet radio station with namely Radio DJ free radio automation software.

RadioDJ is a great automation program especially for someone just starting out in the world of Internet radio.

Yes RadioDJ requires a database which may sound scary but it needn’t be which means you will also need to install either MariaDB or MySQL server edition to run RadioDJ. Links to install MariaDB are in the tutorial below.

How To Install RadioDJ

If you get stuck setting things up help & support is always available through the Radio DJ community forums.

Why bother with Winamp? Its not even as if it has a proper crossfade, The fact Winamp doesn’t have a database is also another one of its downsides. it becomes cumbersome having to change playlists manually.
