About ADS:
-In separators it would be interanste to have probability too. To decide how many commercials a separator is inserted.

-Bug: Separators are not taken into account for block time (when using Sweapers)

Great improvements:  :)
- Improved search feature
- alternate audio tracks for advert (ADS)
-"Shuffle playlist" feature redesigned (ADS)
How do the alternative tracks work in the advertising programmer?

For each advertisement, several files can be inserted, and then at the time of generating the commercial block a random track is selected

There was previously No option to "remove the non-existent tracks"? I can't find it.

Hi, I believe that in the separators, you could have the option to choose how many will be inserted inside the block, type each 1, 2, 3 ... commercial one separator. Another thing I think is very useful is that the separators accept lists, so we avoid creating another folder just for separators and duplicating copies of the same file unnecessarily. So the separators accepting lists with repeating protection like Track List works. We could also from this idea insert in this list commands like for example certain temperature and other things.

I want to praise the option of switching trades in adsheduler, really very functional ;) :D

This is law in some country?
Here there is nothing to legislate it, and I think identifying each advertisement may sound repetitive.
Yes, a law or some other requirement to make it clear when one advert ends and the next starts.

Those of us who use Sweapers need the duration to be exact.
Yes, I think you're right. Scheduled for the next update.

I need information to read and write tags using the API.
Also there is some API command to get the log?
Those APIs will be documented soon - in the next update, likely.

Is there an "Allow only One Instance of Radio Boss" button?  I think it was in the previous versions, but can not find it.
This option was removed in RadioBOSS 5.6. Now it's always active. If you need multiple instances, you should install it multiple times to different folders.

The beta version crashes or restarts and 2 RB's open up.
Does it show any error messages?

I think there was an option before that did not read the Tag's of the tracks. Is it possible to add it again?
It's in settings: Playback->Miscellaneous, "Troubleshooting options" (at the bottom), "Disable tag reading" (you need to scroll the options list to see it).

How do the alternative tracks work in the advertising programmer?
Select an advert, then on the right click the Manage button. When alternate tracks assigned, it will select one random track each time a block is generated.

It's changed to "Show nonexistent files" - the option is in Playlist->Extra menu.

Hi, I believe that in the tabs, you could have the option to choose how many will be inserted inside the block, type each 1, 2, 3
I'm not sure if I understood what the tab is...

I mean to be able to choose how many separators to enter between the commercials, for example, if I have 6 commercials in a block, for 1 separator in the interval of every 2 or 3 commercials and not between all like now

No, no error messages.  But I did change "Priority" from High to Normal in Options. it seems to have settled down.

Could you select all non-existent files when activating this option? It would be much easier to remove them from the playlist.

I'm not sure...  it would sound odd if some ads are separated, and some are not. Separators are required for some radios to mark where one ad ends and another begins.

I believe that separators are necessary, since configurable with probability, I work as a communicator for almost twenty years, and Brazilian broadcasters never run a commercial block without at least one jingle (separator) among the commercials.

The idea of ​​accepting lists is also valid for Auto Intro

The similar request was proposed here: https://www.djsoft.net/smf/index.php/topic,5029.msg25153.html#msg25153 - I think we'll add "Probability" config option for separators.

Could you select all non-existent files when activating this option? It would be much easier to remove them from the playlist.
Currently it only marks them with red color. It's supposed to be rare case when the playlist contains non-existent files. Do you have many non-existent files in your playlists?

Playlist sources will be added for separators and auto intro features. Thank you for the idea!

Usually are few files. (that a file does not exist generally corresponds to an error, or that it has been replaced by another of better sound quality and the new file has already added in the list)
The problem here is not the amount of files deleted, but to locate them in playlist of 20000 songs.

The purpose of the "Show nonexistent files" feature is to show problem tracks for live broadcasters. For fully-featured playlist/library checks, I suggest using Music Library: you can import your playlist (menu Add->Import from playlist), and then use the Tools->Remove entries for non-existent files menu command.

Credit where credit is due Dmitry!  You have done a great job on the latest Beta and the rate at which this software is developing is certainly worth the investment.  You never fail to impress!  Happy Christmas!
