Problems with Winamp last two weeks

It seems many people still use Winamp to listen to the stream.

Two weeks ago, my radio software SAM Broadcaster began to create unaccaptable bad sound and I wasn't able to solve it. So I looked for an alternative and found a nice freeware: RadioDJ. Because the AltaCast plugin didn't work with the AAC+ encoder, I needed to connect RadioDJ to the stand-alone version of AltaCast via a virtual audio cable (VB-Audio). Getting it running was a rather painful experience.

But I got complaints from Winamp users being not able to listen to the stream anymore. So I requested some technical support to get SAM Broadcaster running again. This is how it looks, btw., a user interface style from 20 years ago:

I think, I will switch to a Linux server somewhere in the far future and use Opus instead of AAC+. Hopefully more people have abandoned Winamp by then. But maybe bandwidth will be cheap enough to provide a mp3 stream for nostalgic reasons. :-p
