about SAM Broadcaster Jul 2013

SAM Broadcaster is simply the best solution for anyone looking to start an Internet radio station. It's the only one that does everything (media library, sound processing, scheduling/automation, encoding, etc.). SAM as been around since early 2000 (I'm using it since 2008) and it's by far the most popular solution on the planet. Because of that, it's easy to have help, find tips and tricks and get the most out of it. Their support team is fantastic (haven't always be the case though).

In SAM Broadcaster 2013, they did a great update by allowing people to use the SAM VIBE web widgets (and by the way, SAM VIBE is another gem developed by Spacial Audio, the same company that publishes SAM Broadcaster). This is an easy solution to embed your radio station now playing info, recently played songs, request module, etc. If you are like me and don't know how to code, you just have to pasted a line of code within your Wordpress or Joomla CMS (I assume it's the same with other CMS, but these are the two I use). My website look like an expensive one without the hassle and the cost.


Avoid Like the Plague

about SAM Broadcaster Feb 2012

Possibly the Worst piece of automation software ever released. Known Bugs from Version 2 still not Fixed or addressed in the 4.x.x versions.

Constant freezing Crashing of this program means its NOT worth forking the Money out for. How they get away with Fleecing people for money for SAM broadcaster is beyond me, Its just made up from reworked Winamp plugins.

Also from a Coders point of view its a nightmare to Code a website from the SQL databases.

A must to Avoid.
