Hi, congratulations on this new version :)

Here is a list of possible improvements, and some bug requests I've found

Improvements:
It would be very useful a volume control for auxiliary players, also is half confusing not see what the track that is playing so it would be good miniature panel (see picture)
Also I would like to drag tracks from the main list to the auxiliary

Bug: The icon "settings" of auxiliary players generates a hang up
There is a problem with the output of the auxiliary players:
The output of these is always played by the main exit, without respecting that was assigned (See image config).
the button "Next" in the auxiliary player sometimes skips some tracks

Maybe it's a problem of my user profile, but returned the registry problem: By minimizing that window returns its default size

in the combobox controls Skins there is nothing.

hat is what makes "Podcast"? when I activate the streaming does not work.

There are a number "1" on the button "Stop after current track"

For file types, do not mix after the current track produces a very rough cut of the track fades. I think the right thing would be to wait until this completely finalize and then start the next track


You forgot to show in api intro time on a track.

It has been hard work, and it shows in the results, perotodo planned for RB 5 was implemented?
I expected some more things
Climate-Ads
-Notice of errors by email
-Statistics in RB, but issuing right through RC.
-Crosfadder editor on track.
Pisador on intro-automated (This would be great, but I think you are moved to future versions)


Soon I'll be testing the streaming and see improvements such! :)

At the moment I am working on the remote radio boss, Everything is in a preliminary phase, there are things that do not work as it should. and many other unimplemented.
Deputy rar, maybe someone wants to try it.

Note:
Unzip folders that do not require administrator rights, config.dat file is required for the program to start.
Once open in the settings tab, set the api data precione RB then 'Guardar Configuracion' and its configuration will be stored.
In this same colors flaps can be set for file types in the same manner as in RadioBOSS
It should create a folder 'c:\temp' to make the program work.
for now the language is Spanish.
Some errors when you enter a url, or line in is due to be selected in the main list where you insert position.
Anyway, a bug is always inserted after the current track without respecting the established duration. (this is because I have to find a way to send the character '#' from delphi)


I think it will be necessary to return a command which is the number of the track in the air to mark it on the list.

Thank you very much for making this great program that simplifies life!

Again Congratulations to team development and support

Any idea pair xml aincluir a search engine efficient?
Realize one but the searches are linear,reading at a vector, traveling around and is very slow in libraries most of 3000 elements, so that by the time you remove the executable that attach above.

You are "crazy" !  :)

I liked very much Aux Players from ZaraStudio. Now RB has two Aux Players. That's GREAT (the buttons I would have make it smaller).

I am very happy about PGPro -> Export to player: 1) Overwrite, 2) Add to the end

All the list is just... AWESOME !

Nice, nice, nice...

BIG REQUEST

I would like Track Tool for auxiliar players.
When RB broadcasts live, an operator can work in one aux player to listen and set INTRO, OUTRO, START, END, FADES, MIX etc.
That will be another great, great improvement

Thanks a lot  :)

The playback bar and volume control will be possibly added to the AUX players.

You can already drag tracks between playlists, please see the first post updated.

in the combobox controls Skins there is nothing.
Can you please give more details on this?

hat is what makes "Podcast"? when I activate the streaming does not work.
It only works for Podcasts (an XML news feed) - RadioBOSS will parse this XML and play the most recent news from there.

There are a number "1" on the button "Stop after current track"
It means that "One track only" option is activated. You can right-click on a button and change this.

For file types, do not mix after the current track produces a very rough cut of the track fades. I think the right thing would be to wait until this completely finalize and then start the next track
More details on this will be appreciated. The purpose of this feature is to not mix news/ads with the music.

It has been hard work, and it shows in the results, perotodo planned for RB 5 was implemented?
E-mail error notification will be added in the later RB 5.0 beta updates. Weather announcements are planned for RB 5.1. Automated voice tracks for artist are planned for the future, RB 5.1 or 5.2 I think.

Again Congratulations to team development and support
Thank you :)

Yes, I understand what the function (very useful!).
The problem is how it is implemented, which is currently the song is ending (the above to a file type with this feature enabled), are "Short" when starting a business. the effect of this is very bad, start advertising before a finaleze song.
I think you should completely disable the crossfader of the track is ending (just as they do the jingles) when this option enabled. I hope a better understanding with the image attached. if it will record a video for you to hear this

The errors of notification On will be very useful!
by the other the following betas Characteristics wait very impatient :)

There is a problem with the outputs of auxiliary players, when activated monitoring function as outputs and you hear the sound of air

Other question:
In this version you will add the option to edit the mix with the "Sigue Editor" on the track that is playing?

Please open Settings->Playback->Troubleshooting and put a checkmark for "Identify sound cards using interface names". The list will still have sound cards listed under the same name, but you can choose first or second one and it will use different devices.

The track information panel doesn't read tags at times it only shows the album art with no information
