It works fine like this (but I need to restart RB to override the rate limitation, which should not occur when using our own key I guess. Rate limitation is only when using RB general API Key)
I guess you're right, we'll remove the limitation when using non-default key.

wget -qO- "http://newmaster:9000/?pass=xxxxx&cmd=makelibrary+%%22Footy+Themes.xml%%22+|+%%22C:\Music\Footy+Themes%%22"
The command in fact has an error, that it contains spaces (encoded as "+") around the pipe ("|") characters. In the next version we'll make the command ignore such spaces, so you don't have to fix the command. It used to ignore them in the past, before we updated the parser to allow new parameters.

Good Update now, all the tools of the music library are put together in a single screen, unfortunately I noticed some problem on the BPM, despite the correct settings in some songs you no longer see the value, and the calculation function for some songs not works, if you use track editor for the same it marks -1, incorrect value.
The BPM algo was updated and now it depects more songs correctly (we compared it with Spotify database). Hpwever for some songs it's unable to detect BPM for some reason, in this case it will show -1, and scanning it again will not change that. We'll fine tune it in the next update to reduce the number of "-1" results (most likely it will become a bit slower).

Hi Dmitry, what is the reason why "Wait for the current track to finish" (in relay) has it been removed ?,

The simultaneous player does not work when relay is activated. Is this intentional?
It is usually useful for reproducing local advertising, over remote transmission.

It never worked properly, and fixing it didn't really work, so it was removed. Did you use this option?

Yes, all RadioBOSS air is muted when the relay is active. We'll add an option for events to allow them being played over the relay.

I tried this option in testing (not in production), it seemed to work well.

I have several stations linked by IP, using RB with streaming redundancy. (Using the API), I am looking at how this feature evolves so that in the future it may be used in transmission sites that do not require redundancy.

I think that at some point this feature should be incorporated. It makes transitions sound much more professional and helps with some problems such as packet loss: While today it is strange and less and less frequent can happen.

RadioBOSS, would be continuously alternating between local and remote reproduction, with a disastrous result.
On the other hand, if you wait for the current track to return to streaming, the result would be much less transitions.

It's good news

By the way, what is the reason why DTMF cannot be checked from the main output? Is it something technical?
I think it's the most common and useful.
Even with this relay function

There is a problem with the automatic Intro:

I have two active rules.
-The first is reproduced on the tracks of the 2018-2019 range
-The second should be played on the rest of the tracks(Attached image)

The problem is that only the intro is played on the tracks of the first rule. (The second does not work)

The new rules do NOT work, it is strange.
If rules are created with exactly the same configuration as a previous one, they are not.
I am setting the same configuration as a long-created rule and it does not work, only different files. (Tested even as the only rule enabled)

I think someone reported a problem with autointro in the forum

But while it waits for the song to finish, the live stream itself will be cut at the beginning. That's why we decided not to invest dev time into this feature at the moment. Dealing with bad connections is not that important in 2019, but point taken, the feature is not completyely removed and it may return in the future.

Great feature, please do not get olive from reading data from hardware stations
You can implement it yourself, it's fairly simple. RadioBOSS now reads weather data from the Temp\weather.ini file (located in RadioBOSS settings folder). The file format is simple:
Code: [Select]
?wind_speed_tom=2
?wind_speed_tom_m=3
?temp_tom=12
?temp_tom_f=54
?humidity_tom=63
?temp=5
?temp_f=41
?humidity=86
?wind_speed=4
?wind_speed_m=9
?wind_name=Gentle Breeze
today_data_valid=1
tomorrow_data_valid=1
You can write a batch script or something to convert data from your hardware weather station to this format and that's about it. You can only write the values you actually use and omit the others, it will still work, e.g:
Code: [Select]
?temp=5
?humidity=86
?wind_speed=4
today_data_valid=1

I think someone reported a problem with autointro in the forum
I don't recally anything that we were able to reproduce. Are there any error messages? Please try to use some other value (not Fade In but set a fixed position), will it work?

Good point. A quick test modifying the txt, I don't update the interface.
And I suppose update comand will delete the modified data, what can I do about it?

It's a bug, you can click on the label to make it update the data (the bug will be fixed in the next update). The values will work in text-to-speech.

If you update the file manually, you should not use the weather command. If you use it, it will rewrite the data with new values it gets from the weather service.
