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.
Yes RadioDJ requires a MySQL Database which may sound scary but it needn’t be.
You need to install a program called MariaDB. Links to install MariaDB are in the tutorial below.
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 thing I hated most about Winamp was the fact it would never crossfade properly no matter what settings or plugins you tried.
The fact Winamp doesn’t have a database is also another one of its downsides & it also becomes cumbersome having to change playlists manually.
You can have an event load a playlist in RadioDJ or just leave RadioDJ to what it does best and that’s Automate…
Make the switch to Radio DJ it will make your online radio station sound professional and make it streamlined.
