Repeat protection
« on: May 23, 2020, 04:28:36 PM »
If I were to have 2 files, with the exact same file name, and same tags, in 2 separate folders - would the system count them as being the same song?


FOLDER A: song1.wav (3:20)

FOLDER B: song1.wav (3:42)

One of these has an artist ID attached. I don't want them to be able to run back to back. But i want them both to run.

No, it only compares the full path to the file. Using file name only is not reliable, there can be lots of files like "Track01.mp3" coming from CD rippers and other common names, and songs that are actually different will be considered as the same.

There are other repeat protection rules you can use like "do not repeat artist" and "do not repeat song title".

It's available in the playlist generator in the desktop RadioBOSS - it does not present in the Cloud version yet, sorry.
