    Issue connecting 2 Sam broadcasters together for Remote Show

    Alright Guys,
    I hope you can help with my query It's been baffling me for a while now

    We run a 24/7 Radio Station with pre-recorded shows, now we have decided to start broadcasting live shows
    But what i want to do is have a second shoutcast stream and use this link on
    SAM so by either a Pal Script / Event Scheduler or even manually the stream link drops in the Queue for the show from a second computer to broadcast.

    The Dj will be streaming from their own computer to our radio station, now i know the other way of doing this like many forums have said 'Just give the dj the details
    from the radio stations shoutcast and they stream direct to the airwaves and bypass the main SAM Broadcaster'

    But i'm thinking that this is a much prefered way of doing and was wondering if this is possible?

    So far with tests i have dropped the stream link in the queue, it loads up on the deck but as it's about to play it vanishes
    also with the remote pal scipt it excutes and loads 20 stream links but all fail and vanish
    Aso had a 'Error 200' .. I will add that the stream is active while this test are running

    Currrently this idea is from another Sam Broadcaster but in time i would also like to know if this is possible from Virual DJ / Other to SAM Broadcaster

    In Previous media players we used Winamp where a live stream was possible to drop in the Queue and connnect to another computer to play their show

    I hope you can help
    Thanks in advance

    It looks a minor issue to Me

    Have you tried the switch from a file (mp3 ...) to an IP already by using an external mp3 file ?
    e.g. : a mp3 file located at a server such as

    Try to load that file to your queue by using ipTop into your Event Scheduler
    If You use a TOTH than add the external file at xx:59:55 as ipTop (xx = your hour)
    The file has to start perfect after the TOTH is played

    If you use an external IP Port be sure to load the IP several times (2 or 3 times) with your Event Sheduler
    In general You will only need it one time, but its always possible that a drop is created during a stream / broadcast (aka = nothing is perfect)

    I use an external IP for news headlines and it works perfect.

    If the host is streaming from his own house / place its perfectly possible that he / she are streaming to your backup IP Port
    Use for every host the same IP Port, its easy to use and everyone their software is set to the same and right settings.
    To yourself, its way easier to only use one IP Port to give hosts access to your stream.

    Anyway, I did this about a decade ago to a webradio into an other country to stream my Weekly 3 hours show, and its an awesome way to make a broadcast all the way from home
