Re: RadioBOSS 5.5 [beta] - UAC Issue
« Reply #3 on: August 13, 2016, 02:35:59 PM »

Update!

I tested if user can modify the dimensions of WZ's if try to change them, when he is not permited to {Modify UI Layout}. He can't. So, now I think that can access WZ's, becouse he cannot changes them.

There is a problem.
Look how I see. UI settings means WZ's too.
When I do not permit user to [Modify UI Layout] I understand WZ's too.
Is it possible to solve this?


Becouse when User do not have permission to [Modify UI Layout] he still can change WZ's.

Thanks a lot.

Dmitry, select a local path for"- Search: Select folder as search track source" and generated the report attached.

- Statistic relays to collect stats from different servers
With it is possible to see statistics when not using radioboss as encoder? (I use another pc with RadioCaster)

By what I see not is added the "hour of playback" in the command geyplaylist. Is it possible that you add in this beta? I saw two users seeking the same thing not long ago in the Forum.

he search engine's "file browser tree" shows only the first match. I think that should continue looking for coincidences whenever is push enter.

DTMF tone generator: very useful. It may be convenient that tones play alone. Without mixing with the track previous or next as it happens now.

Additional work zone (separate window) : This is great.

Various artists website for replay protection. How does it work? It is a collaboration with the string with blanks. (example " and " or "and")

If not are you searching with space can find false collaborations in the name of the artist. for example "Andy Gibb"

Sweepers: gap killer is taken into account.
great that this has been implemented. I'm going to perform several tests these days.

Yes, a bit later, the documentation is being prepared.

Look how I see. UI settings means WZ's too.
When I do not permit user to [Modify UI Layout] I understand WZ's too.
Is it possible to solve this?
Yes, I agree. If a user doesn't have the UI Layout permission, then changing work zone sizes (now it's possible to resize the new floating zone) and turning zones on and off shout be disabled.

he search engine's "file browser tree" shows only the first match. I think that should continue looking for coincidences whenever is push enter.
This is a good addition, will be implemented soon,

DTMF tone generator: very useful. It may be convenient that tones play alone. Without mixing with the track previous or next as it happens now.
It supposed to work without crossfades - looks like a bug. Thanks!

It will only run on the 3rd Sunday of September, because 1st of September doesn't match the week filter.

It searches with spaces, IIRC, it will be checked further for the case you've mentioned.

Partially possible - use the "Start built-in encoder" feature and specify the stats server you want to use as Relay.

By what I see not is added the "hour of playback" in the command geyplaylist. Is it possible that you add in this beta? I saw two users seeking the same thing not long ago in the Forum.
Yes, there's another command added: "getplaylist2" - it includes some of the playlist columns and works faster than "getplaylist".

Looling forward to seeing what API commands have been added.

Love the fact that the ON AIR indicator dims now if it's not connected :)

And great that the issue of next/previous track not playing if current playing is deleted (To be tested).
