I found some problems with ADS Scheduler:
-Generate playlists for empty blocks, should be filled with sweepers
-The ADS Scheduler command does not use sweepers.
-The ADS Scheduler command even uses much CPU. 30% I think is way too

1. Currently it intentionally skips sweepers for empty blocks. I think we can add a configuration option to control it, as it's already done for Intro/Outro.
2. Do you mean the adsupdate command?
3. It runs with lower priority, so if any other process needs CPU, the system will take it from ads scheduler and give to another process with higher priority. It shouldn't be a problem.

1- It is wise and necessary addition. (Consider that files start and end of advertising block should be omitted)
2-That's right, when this command is not used sweepers.
3-Ok, did not know this. Just look at the process manager and saw running at 30%

The option will be added in one of the next updates. The adsupdate command will be checked too - added to the list of bugs.

Dmitry for Sweepers already taken into account the time cutout of silence, or still not been implemented? Thank you

Not yet, sorry - it's planned for the future versions (RadioBOSS 5.5 I think).

Ok, thanks.


He thought about the new feature of running events from the API:
With this a very interesting new possibility opens (
and I think not very difficult to implement) to start local blocks:

From the head it could run an event to make way for local programming API (sending a command to all transmission sites). (This event should be inserted in the playlist so run after finishing the current track)

Each sending center should operate similarly to the DTMF; An event is executed when the command arrives and is within the range of 5 minutes the start time.

It is only cumbersome to be manually add a delay to start playing the events (to offset the buffer of the stream)
Although if used locally by the LineIn input, this is not necessary

But this technique is super transparent to the user (all sound natural).
Nothing DTMF tones or cut songs. :D

A scheduler management API (including starting of events) will be added in the future - currently planned for RadioBOSS 5.5.

I just realized that the time has not fill the account the beginning and end of ad space
Currently it doesn't take into account start/end and gap killer - in one of the future versions it will.
This is next to be added? :)
Otherwise I think it could be implemented by analyzing the points predetermined start and end in each song or advertising.
(I think it would be simpler to add)

For this is required to start and end points are analyzed with the tool medialibrary
