Song Request System

The Song Request System consists of:
  • Remote Control API commands to add song requests and clear the requested songs list.
  • Song Request window which allows to manually insert requested songs into the playlist. To open the windows in the main menu click View->Song Requests (or press Ctrl+Y)
  • Scheduler command to automatically play the requested songs
Song Request API commands (general information on Remote Control API: http://manual.djsoft.net/radioboss/en/remote_controlapi.htm, see part II - "Performing an action"):

songrequest
Add song request.
Parameters:
"filename" - file name of a requested song
"message" - optional, message from a user who requested a song

songrequestclear
Clears the requested songs list.

Song Request - scheduler command:
To automatically play the requested songs use the playrequestedsong command.
Optionally you can specify a minimum time interval (in minutes) to delay song request playback: sometimes it's required that request: some music licensing authorities require a delay before requested song can be played. Example: playrequestedsong 30 - delay requested song playback for at least 30 minutes. The scheduled event with the playrequestedsong command should be set up to repeat e.g. every 10 minutes during the time period when you want to accept song requests.



getfile scheduler command
This command adds one file from a folder to the playlist. It can select oldest or newest (by date added) file, or random file.

Syntax:
getfile C:\path_to_folder [/random|/newest|/oldest] [/delete]

Example 1: play one file from announcements folder (newest added) and delete it after playback
getfile C:\announcements /newest /delete

The /delete parameter can be omitted if you don't want to delete a file after playback.

It is very strange.
On another PC that was running 24 Hs tracklist, worked well.
Then change the folder to a folder synchronized by Google Drive (about 400 songs) and the program then hung a few hours.
Then restart the program and continued to hang up.
When this problem occurs, the CPU usage goes to 25%, the application is totaly frozen and no audio is output.
The issue happens only with Google Drive synchronized folder? Theoretically, that could be the cause. Can you try on the same PC on the regular folder - will it hang?
Before Google Drive had a normal folder and worked well. so I guess this is the problem.
Yesterday hung RB playing a track list, a common and current folder (it was not a synchronized folder).
estubo several weeks working fine until yesterday.
When it hangs, the interface disappears and is all white. and the cpu goes to 25% on a intel i3.

How many files are there in Track List source folders and do you have any repeat protection rules set for Track Tool?

Dmitry,

Disabled rules repetition, 397 songs.

Surely there are some files that start or end points established in TrackTool.


Thanks

Another Bug:
send the task name server does not work when "multiple actions" are used
Can you please confirm that the bug actually exists in the latest RB 5.2.1? We were unable to confirm the bug here.

Dmitry, I can not test this again in the same pc (if this happens again, our station is silent)
But next week will put to the test in another pc the same settings to see if I can reproduce the error.

Thank You

Are there any Track Lists involved? It could be that RadioBOSS tries to select the track from a Track List but fails to do so for a long time as you have repeat protection rules. This is fixed for the next update.

It's hard to tell then what went wrong... If it's a one time issue, then it could be anything.
