Additional Comments

Tested only under Ubuntu:
When SAM is minimized by user, it happens sometimes that the main window can't be shown. The program still runs (PAL scripts are running and queue list is being played) but you can't have access to the main window. I have found no other way that des-installing and re-installing SAM to solve this.

Known bugs
Bug # Description Status Resolution Other apps affected


FOR USE WITH FIREBIRD DATABASE (written by a previous maintainer, kept for archive): prefer mysql

1. Install the latest Wine

2. Download the winetricks sh script, remember where you save it, and name it ''

3. Open a terminal in the directory with the winetricks script.

4. type 'sh'

5. In the window that comes up, choose gecko, msxml3, and richedit20

step five is very important.

6. When the winetricks script is done you should configure wine to your liking if necessary.

7. Run the sam broadcaster setup, use firebird sql, then when it gives the two radio buttons, choose the custom settings one, and in the options that show there, select the embedded one.

8. setup should continue without trouble.

9. Run sam


FOR USE WITH 'HOST' MYSQL SERVER (written by electronico 2009-03-01)

1. install & configure mysql-server on your OS (Ubuntu Hardy X64 in my case) : sudo apt-get install mysql-server

2. install the latest wine and add repository to your /etc/apt/sources.list : sudo apt-get install wine, then sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list and add deb hardy main at the end. Then refresh repositories : sudo apt-get update

3. download winetricks. in a terminal, go to the directory where you've downloaded winetricks and run sh winetricks. Choose : corefonts gecko msxml3 riched30

4. run sam broadcaster setup, choose MySQL as database, choose custom settings (for mySQL) and enter your MySQL root password. Ignore error message about mySQL not found.

5. as told by the previous writter : some minor issues are some button not working (encoders start/stop, same for PAL scripts), the turnaround is to use the pop-up menu by right-click in the wanted fields.

Simple HOWTO: (written by m3gab0y 2009-10-20)

1. Install the latest Wine

2. Install the latest MySQL Server and SETUP it! Just a simple setup, create a root password and start the MySQL Daemon. 

The install is easy for some distros. Run this as root:

# yum install mysql mysql-server

for Fedora, CentOS and all in between :)

# apt-get install mysql mysql-server

for Debian, Ubuntu and all in between :)

for other distros, consult your documentation or google "MySQL setup your distro".

After install it's a good idea to set MySQL server to run everytime after a reboot. Do that with this command in the console as root:


# chkconfig --level 2345 mysqld on; service mysqld start

Login to MySQL Server with this command as root:

# mysql -u root
mysql> SET PASSWORD FOR 'root'@'localhost' = PASSWORD('mynewpass');

Where 'mynewpass' is the password. It should return: 

Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)

Then flush:


This is a really quick and dirty way to do it! So if you are not testing, please read on how to securely setup MySQL server. 

3. Download SAM 4.2.2. Start the setup, choose MySQL as server, select to specify the setup details, enter the root password and click next. Ignore the errors.

4. Run SAMBC.exe, it should run, if not, install  gecko, msxml3, and richedit20 as described above with the script


SAM Broadcaster's Firebird server
Note that SAM Broadcaster's Firebird server doesn't work for linux distrubutions. You should create a manual database with Firebird server for linux.
