This is excellent app, very stable. I use this program for live streaming and recording, work for months without problem. Simple to use. I would like only one more option, possibility to set different dating scheme for recorded files. Now by default when recording starts file is named by date. I use split every hour option. It would be nice to have possibility to set that every new file is named with date and time when this file is recorded.
I have used this product for years to live stream into Second Life. It is easy to use and very dependable. Thanks :) Caoilte Skytower
I've been streaming live music with the BUTT broadcaster for 6 years. I've never had any issues with it. I'd love it if you would create a broadcaster for use on my android tablet. CelticMaidenWarrior
Hello, I installed my butt for streaming radio, but after installation and everything ok, I started to notice some brief and random interruptions during transmission, and that I was not with SimpleCast. I would use the butt for transmission band name. Any suggestions?
butt is THE BEST encoder. Stable, uses minimal resources, so much better than others we have used.
