Awesome Genre List edit. :)

Finally EXCELLENT UAC too. It behaves exactly as I want to.


Thanks Dmitriy !



Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.5 [beta] - UAC Issue
Post by: pety 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.

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.

When I do not permit user to [Modify UI Layout] I understand WZ's too.

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.

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

Yes, there's another command added: "getplaylist2" - it includes some of the playlist columns and works faster than "getplaylist".

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).

Thank you this wonderful update. Many great improvements. Still hoping and praying for playlist mixdown capability :-)
Currently "mixdown" feature is nearly impossible to implement as all mixing and fading is done based on real time. We have plans on major audio engine update and after that, the mixdown feature will be added too.

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 :)
The new API commands will be listed in the updated user manual (currently we're working on it). By the way, the ON AIR was always dimmed when no encoder was connected :)

Thanks!

Hi. I commented a few things from the new version.

It's really useful to classify the types of files in a folder, so you avoid having to sort track by track.

One thing I asked on other occasions in the Progrador ad is to include a folder in rotation within this. Ie in a capeta have several tracks ad and each time a different sound. This is useful when you have several different tracks of the same advertiser.
I thought that by grouping them in the new version by categories this is solved, but simpletente is not to repeat the same ad in the same category in the same block. That can be done in the future?

Otherwise I'm testing this new version. Seguire looking to see that such things go.

Thank you.

Suggestion

Hi Dmitry,

thanks for give us the possibility to test the improvements of the new beta.
I have had installed it few moments ago, and I like to make a suggestion about the Additional workspace are.

At first, the german translation of "Additional" is "Zusätzlicher Arbeitsbereich". So far it isn't implemented. :)

So let's go to my suggesstion (see screenshot)

1 - The title bar of the additional area doesn't contains any text. Maybe "Additional workzone" (or "Zusätzlicher Arbeitsbereich" in german) would be an idea.
2 - By minimizing the main window of RB the additional workspace minimizes, too. For computers with multiple displays this isn't useful. Maybe you should make it possible to add a separate entry to the Windows Taskbar, so that the main window can be minimized independently (like the music library).

Have a nice day
Basti

It is red if one or more encoders are connected, and it's dimmed when no connection present.

It will be included within one of the next updates.

This is not possible yet, but it's planned for the future. The Grouping feature is present only to organize adverts in the list for convenience - it doesn't affect ads placement in the final playlists.

Another suggestion to my first posting (https://www.djsoft.net/smf/index.php/topic,4651.msg22277.html#msg22277)

There is an Windows 10 skin implemented. But it's a bright UI. Maybe you're able to make a fully dark "Windows 10" UI? :)

Also, how seen on my screenshot, the "dark UI" does not have a effect on the tabs of the additional workspace

The Windows 10 controls are light by default, so dark theme is not possible under those circumstances... You can adjust the styles in the Style settings - e.g. make the Windows 10 theme a bit darker.

OK, works as I want to. but is half confused. Maybe would be better to fill with this case "*" the day in the date.

Yes, there's another command added: "getplaylist2" - it includes some of the playlist columns and works faster than "getplaylist".
Least note is more rapid. The problem is has less columns and would redesign software already built. It is possible to add the StartTime column a getplaylist. I will use Getplaylist2 in new developments.

I thought I was going to have a complete redesign of the day and start time on the Planner section.
Although they added "number week" and "ignore year", which are very useful. Occurs that several times is must run an event in several dates different and this only is possible duplicating events.

Maybe you can add something like. "Moments of start": a radiobutton that have the options "one only": works as until now. "many": the date section disappears and is replaced by a list. with the option of adding various dates for that event. (see image)

Hi Dmitry,

Windows 10 supports "dark mode" UI since the last update (anniversary update), Codename "Redstone".
But it isn't important.

More important is, that RB 5.5 beta have an issue with style settings (see screenshot below).
E.g. the formatting settings for the playlists standard font doesn't have any effect to the playlist.

Configured: white text, bigger and bold (because white text on dark background is better than black text)
Effect: nothing. The text is small and black, no chance to change

It's just "Nth week day of the month". If you select 1st and 2nd, and Week days is set to "Mondays" then it will play on 1st and 2nd Mondays of the month.

Least note is more rapid. The problem is has less columns and would redesign software already built. It is possible to add the StartTime column a getplaylist. I will use Getplaylist2 in new developments.
I'll see what can be done, but I think we'll extend the "getplaylist2" instead. What columns do you find missing?

Complete redesign is totally impossible as we have to maintain compatibility with previous versions. Changing things a lot will make updating the software a nightmare for our users...

Can you please specify the example where multiple start times/dates are required (and are not covered by existing features)? By the way, there are plans on adding "Every month" and, perhaps, the "Day of the month" selector (similar to "Hours" but select days 1-31).

Windows 10 supports "dark mode" UI since the last update (anniversary update), Codename "Redstone".
But it isn't important.
I'll take a look at it. But from what I can tell, when it's released, you can do the following:
1. Select the Dark theme in RadioBOSS
2. Change the UI Theme for this style to Windows (instead of Carbon) - then it will use Windows 10 controls, and if you use "dark" Windows 10 controls, then you'll have native dark theme for W10.

More important is, that RB 5.5 beta have an issue with style settings (see screenshot below).
E.g. the formatting settings for the playlists standard font doesn't have any effect to the playlist.

Configured: white text, bigger and bold (because white text on dark background is better than black text)
Effect: nothing. The text is small and black, no chance to change
Yes, this is a bug in predefined styles, the "Played track emphasizing" is incorrectly saved there. Only played tracks will be marked in black. Will be fixed in the next update. Thank you for reporting!

If that is true, for some users it may be chaotic.

Happens that sometimes have to run an event Monday at 10 o'clock in the morning and Tuesday at 11 o'clock in the morning. For these cases there is no other solution that is not duplicate events. But it's not something very annoying.

I think that with addition of "Week" last, it is powerful enough for what I need.

I would like to use this for start blocks of advertising, of way similar to as working them tone DTMF. When you receive a command Api, starts the event that is within the range of 5 minutes.

For other things also is useful, start events only with the command API

I'm starting to try the Sweepers: gap killer is taken into account
First problem:
If I use the option "generate lists of reproduction for lists empty", the block whole should contain a sweepers of the duration of the block advertising. Currently no advertising lists are empty.

Assign Type for ads; check if two or more consecutive ads have the same type
It is a feature very useful. But I think that the name not is very clear. Maybe would be better "category of ads"


Something else: view and edit rating of songs will be add in RB 5.5?

With it is possible to see statistics when not using radioboss as encoder? (I use another pc with RadioCaster)
Partially possible - use the "Start built-in encoder" feature and specify the stats server you want to use as Relay.
I'm testing with shoutcast V2.
I have the error "socket error # 11001host not found".
in the field stream id have "1" (the number of shoutcast stream)
When typing that ip and server browser entry correctly to the web server
The password that I use is that of the server administrator or RadioCaster which use to connect to the server?

If I understood wrong, just won't be run in September. (Not in other months) This is just what I need
If you use both date and "Week days" then date specifies the event start date - the event will run on and after that date, considering the "week days" and "weeks" settings. So in your case, it will not run on 1/9 because it's not 3rd week of the month. It is mentioned in the user manual by the way :)

Happens that sometimes have to run an event Monday at 10 o'clock in the morning and Tuesday at 11 o'clock in the morning. For these cases there is no other solution that is not duplicate events. But it's not something very annoying.
Yes, this will require duplicating the events... In the future I think we'll figure out some solution for this, probably "Additional start times" feature, as you said before.

OK, some ideas: I think should be able to call an events from the Api by any code or the name of the event.
I would like to use this for start blocks of advertising, of way similar to as working them tone DTMF. When you receive a command Api, starts the event that is within the range of 5 minutes.
Yes, identifying av event is a problem. Currently the main method of working with events is to get events list and access them by index. "Name" is not unique identifier, so can't be reliably used.

If I use the option "generate lists of reproduction for lists empty", the block whole should contain a sweepers of the duration of the block advertising. Currently no advertising lists are empty.
Can you please provide more information about it?

Assign Type for ads; check if two or more consecutive ads have the same type
It is a feature very useful. But I think that the name not is very clear. Maybe would be better "category of ads"
It sounds OK in English :) I'm not sure if the Category is better naming. We should wait for other opinions on the matter.

Something else: view and edit rating of songs will be add in RB 5.5?
Probably in the later versions...

Without going off topic - as nelson c has said, being able to trigger events by api rather than schedule woukd be a great feature to have!
The complete schedule management API will be released in .1 or .2 version.

OK, some ideas: I think should be able to call an events from the Api by any code or the name of the event.
I would like to use this for start blocks of advertising, of way similar to as working them tone DTMF. When you receive a command Api, starts the event that is within the range of 5 minutes.
Yes, identifying av event is a problem. Currently the main method of working with events is to get events list and access them by index. "Name" is not unique identifier, so can't be reliably used.
Yes, I had thought the same mechanism. Would be great if the number of the task never changes. For some automated processes would be more complex having to send a request to the API, read the response and based on that to run a new call to the API to run the event. Instead if it is known that the index never changes, you can omit that step

There are possible cases when the index can change: new event is added, an event is deleted, another event list loaded. In this case, the reliable way to work is calling up event list and then working with events based on index. Another way we're testing (successfully :) ) now is unique internal event ID. That will never change and it can be used even if the event list is modified.

The case is as follows:
An advertising block is empty (there is no advertising). If you use dtmf tones to replace advertising, upon receipt of the tone is attempting to play a completely empty list, then all commercial header block will be issued. (and it shouldn't).
Then when there is no advertising, and the block has a fixed duration, you need to fill the entire duration of the advertising block with sweeapers. (To impersonate the ADS on the header)

New priority rules: Year
Happens with the configuration of the as (month that, less that). Be omitted?

A doubt:
For example if this enabled priority based on valuation.
If a song of the year: rating 1 = priority - 40
But also this set, increase the priority for tracks of this year to + 40. The priority of this track wax "0"?
then could make increase the priority to + 80 per year? (with what the rest of the rating would be + 40)

Post by: pety on August 16, 2016, 03:41:11 AM
Dmitriy, today I will install RB 5.5 Beta in LIVE (ON AIR PC).
I am very pleased about Genre Editable List and I will test it hard.
I've seen that Filters in PGPro contain Genre filter criteria which is great.

Important question. Will you add custom fields in Tag Editor from Library?
Right now Genre meets all my expectations. If I'll start to categorise my tracks with Genre too, If Custom fields will be inserted, maybe I will have to reconsider entire schema of track categorisations.

Yes, this is planned, I'm not sure if the feature will be ready in full for this version.

The case is as follows:
An advertising block is empty (there is no advertising). If you use dtmf tones to replace advertising, upon receipt of the tone is attempting to play a completely empty list, then all commercial header block will be issued. (and it shouldn't).
Then when there is no advertising, and the block has a fixed duration, you need to fill the entire duration of the advertising block with sweeapers. (To impersonate the ADS on the header)
So you need sweepers to be added to empty blocks as well?

small bug. to change the radiobuton,  combobox always given "Biblioteca"
Yes, this change is planned for the next update, the button will be renamed according to the actual selection.

Bug in the metadata editor:
to confirm a change there is that press two times save. (and the key enter the same,very uncomfortable)

Another mistake: I want to delete the year of song. I get the text, option of duress twice the button Save and the year appears again.
That's strange. Can you please send the file for which the tag editor requires double-save (and can't remove the year) to support@djsoft.net ?

New priority rules: Year
Happens with the configuration of the as (month that, less that). Be omitted?
It only considers the year. It is rare when songs have month or full date specified...

For example if this enabled priority based on valuation.
If a song of the year: rating 1 = priority - 40
But also this set, increase the priority for tracks of this year to + 40. The priority of this track wax "0"?
then could make increase the priority to + 80 per year? (with what the rest of the rating would be + 40)
All rating rules are added together and then the value is capped to be within 0-100 range. When priority is zero, the track is excluded from the generated playlist.

Yes. While user manual is not ready yet: you can specify multiple genres in the filter, like rock,metal,hard rock.

Right now Genre meets all my expectations. If I'll start to categorise my tracks with Genre too, If Custom fields will be inserted, maybe I will have to reconsider entire schema of track categorisations.
Custom fields are planned, but this feature is too global (needs lots of design changes and heavy testing), and while it was originally planned for this version (5.5), now it's moved forward to version 5.6.

Which is different {Playlist Layout} by {UI Layout} ?
If I denny USER  to access{Playlist Layout} what he cannot do exactly?
The Playlist layout only controls is the user can move, resize or click columns in the playlist. UI layout controls if the user can move UI elements (resize work areas etc).

Sweepers for commercial filling I think that she is not functioning properly. (always passes the time much more margin for error) Testing with a folder with more than 2000 songs, and the result was that of the attached image.


in several tests threw lists of this duration:
08m 10s; 08 m 25s; 13m 35s  (these values were calculated from the time of reproduction of the Log)
As I said before always more, and in the last case is unacceptable

I remember you reported it several times before... We are still were unable to reproduce it and I fail to see why it can happen, even theoretically. In the future I think this problem will go away, when we do major audio engine redesign and rewrite.

I'm testing the feature to increase the priority for tracks of this year. However I do not feel that is working. There are few songs of this year generated lists.
Try generating playlist with and without this rule and compare the number of current year tracks. Also, try generating longer playlists, e.g 24 or 48 hour.

Create a shortcut in the keyboard would be great. for example on the track selected in the list, keys shift + keys left or right to up or down the rating.
We'll consider adding this feature. May be click on stars in the playlist to set the rating.

Not always, but most often happens when the track above it another belonging to a type of file

Sometimes also occurs without a file type preceding it.

This is done on purpose. As it was before, when Track Information updates regardless of anything, you would lose all your metadata edits when the next tracks starts - this is even more annoying :) Now if you edited metadata, you need to either save or discard the changes to allow its further automatic updates.

It's all cumbersome, since it was necessary to press enter twice, to save the metadata of a track. The first was made on the track selected. The second on another track. (still haven't gone the previous metadata), by which I think that changes were not saved the first time.

This is a good idea, but the problem is that the Log window is usually small and there may be not enough space for stats. Another possibility is to include the Stats window in the work zones - we're considering this idea as future improvement.

It scrolls to the current track if you have the View->Playlist Auto-scroll option enabled.

Both Current and Now will work in version 5.5.0.1. Actually, "Now" didn't work in the first release...

3-Thank you for the improvements in sweapers, will be put to test evaluating. :)
Yes, the selection should work much better now.

4-Priority per year, now applied less than, more than, equals? isn't it?
Yes, because "less than" or "more than" doesn't include the value specified ("less than" 2016 will not include 2016) - that's why "equals" was added as well.

5-Still with inconvenient for editing metadata. (works much better) but I have yet to precionas 2 times enter to save your changes. (very annoying)

It depends. For freshly added tracks (e.g. playlist generator event, or manually loaded) - all of them will be "unplayed". And those tracks will be started to be marked as "played" only when you play them at least once.

OK, not what I could find to change the language to English. This translated into Spanish this evil.
"Auto-Scroll en Playlist", is perfectly understandable in Spanish ;)
Now it says "Playlist centering" and that's how it was called before - will be changed.

I am testing the improvements in the sweapers. the first impression is that it works great!. :D

I'm trying it with the player simultaneously. (Muting main reproduction).
Not I like the fade in when ends the block of advering and takes up to the reproduction main, is way too sharp. Also a little more than mixing between the player simultaneously and the reproduction main serious desirable. (Only when the event ends, when you start is excellent).
Is it possible to improve this? Thank you

There is some bug in PLGenPro. For some reason generated a list with two consecutive songs from U2

U2 - I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight
U2 - Elevation

(Text copied and pasted)
For U2 have selected, artists related (although in this case the string of the artist not various in nothing)

The fade in/out is set in Settings->Playback->Fading, the default is 0.6 seconds, you can increase it to make the fade more smooth.

Not see log because the list is generated by the Planner. Do not think that is the problem the number of tracks. The shortlist consists of two sub-categories.
-category 1 has to select a track in almost 9000 songs (priorities are used)
-the second preset has the same list of 9000 songs but with a rating of 6-10 filter. (I believe that as minimum there are 3000 songs that comply with this filter)

It is very difficult to replicate the problem.

Thanks for reporting. In 5.5.0.1 the UAC is more strict. It seems that some user setting cause this to appear. Can you please send a screenshot of RadioBOSS window, perhaps this will give some clues.

Please try generating the list manually several times - maybe it will give you an error. I also think that it should save generator log when it creates the playlist by scheduler too - will be done in the next update, the log will help to know if something went wrong.

This log doesn't contain any errors but I suppose the resulting playlist doesn't have any problems either? Depending on what tracks playlist generator chooses each time, same template can be successful, or give errors - especially with limited number of tracks and strict filters and no-repeat rules.
In the next update it will keep a log file when it generates a playlist, this should help in diagnosing issues like this.

There is a problem with queue when put a playlist to the list.


When queue load a playlist:
So, the solution is: open playlist in player and COUNT the second track from playlist as the first Q.


Images are very informative (I hope).
Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.5 [beta]
Post by: djsoft on August 27, 2016, 02:25:19 PM
From your images, it appears to be correct. When the playlist opens up, it plays all tracks from the playlist and then the track that was queued after the playlist.

No, it is not. It plays twice "Forbiden Dreams"
If you need I'll make a video


The steps which RM makes them are:


1. Index the tracks added in queue (even a playlist which contains oder tracks, but do not shows them and the playlist is holded by a Player). Example with playlists which contains two tracks (1. Manfredi - Buon giorno, 2. Puppo - Su di noi):


 - (1) Bon Jovy - Don't make me lough
 - (2) playlist
 - (3) Maddona - Don't make me lough too

2. When RB plays the playlist (Manfredi and Puppo) makes this:

 - a) FIRST: play the first track from the playlist; (good action)
 - b) SECOND: open the playlist in queue manager and index the tracks from the beginning: (wrong action)
        - (1) Manfredi - Buon giorno
        - (2) Puppo - Su di noi
        - (3) Maddona - Don't make me lough too

So,  Manfredi - Buon giorno will be played twice

Still doing tests with the filling of Sweapers.
The selection is unbeatable, the result is perfect!. Great job.

Simply I wonder because limiting to a maximum of sweapers?.
I just realized that if the algorithm cannot meet the filling, not inserted sweaper, which is very correct.

I think would be more correct a checkbox "allow multiple sweapers"

If not is are files more boys to what needs filling is, is correct that not is enter any filling. (to not replace the transmission of the header)

The API is already present in the latest update, here's the short list of its commands:
&action=schedule
&type=list, delete, run, add, update (one of those)
for "delete", "run", "update" command types there's also "id" parameter (you get the event ID when you perform "list" query)
for "update" and "add" commands there's "event" parameter that accepts event data in XML form (same as returned when you "list" events).

Yes, now it's more strict but if you have lots of sweepers, it will find combinations that give the perfect or near-perfect result :)

It already allows to add 1, 2 or 3 sweepers (the default is 2) - or I misunderstood the question?

After the post above are still doing tests. Use a 3500 Swapers folder, and it takes me about 15 minutes to generate the lists.(external drive)
And then I went to update it and it takes another 15 minutes.
There is no problem here, but I was wondering if it would be better to save a sort of auxiliary playlist, with the exact duration of each file. Then is would prevent rescan all the folder whenever it modifies the advertising. or when you use the command ADSUpdate

I wonder because they limit the amount of sweapers. For the people that only can use a swepers, an option "only one a sweapers" would be correct.
I'm using music and institutional as sweapers. I think serious optimal algorithm to take the amount of Sweapers you want, whereupon more absolutely would be possible (which is very good for not always repeat the same thing).
My idea is that the algorithm decides the amount of sweapers, provided is respect the time established (as currently does), and not repeat a sweapers in a same block to fill.

For example:
A block of 5 minutes is could fill in the following mode:
-01:00 jingle
-01:00 jingle
-02:10 Music
-00:50 jingle

Another might be:
-02:10 Music
-00:50 jingle
-02:00 Music



If not is are files more boys to what needs filling is, is correct that not is enter any filling. (to not replace the transmission of the header)
Can you please provide more information about it?
It is only a comment. I like the current behavior, if you can't find a sweapers meets requested not insert anything. (previously inserted to the random if not found that compliance with that time).
If you insert a sweapers more small, would not have any problem (only would return soon to the main transmission), but if the sweapers is longer tournament a piece of transmission of the header, which would not be anything good.

I thought I was going to have a complete redesign of the day and start time on the Planner section.
Although they added "number week" and "ignore year", which are very useful. Occurs that several times is must run an event in several dates different and this only is possible duplicating events.

Maybe you can add something like. "Moments of start": a radiobutton that have the options "one only": works as until now. "many": the date section disappears and is replaced by a list. with the option of adding various dates for that event. (see image)
Awesome! I was thinking at another way to do that, but yours is better

Yes, this is mostly because Gap Killer is used, it scans each track for silence and this operation is time consuming. I think this can be cached.

Seems that not is doing a good job the translator.

In summary words:
Currently it can select the amount maximum of sweepers to use.
This in my opinion do not have much sense.

Would be better that the algorithm of ADS Scheduler, choose the amount of tracks that need. (without maximum)

OK... I don't see a reason why it may happen then, even theoretically. I suppose you have Resume Playback or Auto save profile enabled, and saving the profile failed - it's not critical, just an error message (and the next save attempt will likely be successful). Pleas let me know if it happens again.

Second Problem: Yes there were subfolders.
It searches in the folder itself, subfolders are ignored. There's a bug when the folder doesn't have any music tracks though - will be fixed.

I have both active: Resume Playback and AutoSave Profile. Maybe antivirus was checking it and the profile could not been saved in that moment. By the way. AutoSave Profile is set at 30 min. That means (perhaps) that it was an accident...

You can gen events list, filter all that have the "[AdScheduler]" name, then find the one that has closest start time - it's the "IntTimeToStart" field, please see this post for information about this field: https://www.djsoft.net/smf/index.php/topic,4663.msg22458.html#msg22458

A doubt:
To modify an event, is necessary pass you all them fields of the xml? or with the ID and the field changing is enough?
Yes, currently you'll need to specify all fields. Anyway, you already have all fields from the "list" command, so you just modify what you need.

I'm testing the API events and it works very well :D

However, I cannot find way to start advertising with a single command API events. I would like something as in DTMF that is starts the event that this next on schedule.

OK but here there is a problem.
If the event is triggered by API 5 minutes earlier. Then when you set time will be run.

You can check it in your script and do not run events that will soon be started anyway. Or prevent event from starting: click the arrow button near the Run Now button, and check the "If Run Now was used, skip next scheduled launch" option.

The idea of this is to use start of trading blocs from the API of the mismanera that with DTMF tones. (but not the audience perceives it)
Why wait to be home hours, is not an option, because tournament the main transmission.
The idea is to send commands API from the header to the repeaters at the moment which must begin issuing local advertising.

The second alternative seems valid, but I have a doubt:
If you then run the ADSUpdate command, this configuration is maintained?

The adsupdate command recreates the ad events and it will not keep the "Started" state for the event. If you only want to start events from the API then you can use the Manual option to prevent events from starting from the scheduler itself (probably, an API command should be added to control "Manual" option state).

This is already possible with the "If Run Now was used, skip next scheduled launch" option (starting events from the API is the same as clicking the "Run Now" button, so this option applies).

It is a valid option, although it obliges all events to be executed if or if from the API.
For example I have events that I need to make on a scheduled basis: a backup of the profile that is performed once a week.

I'm not sure if I understood the request... The "run" API command for scheduler is the same as pressing the Run Now button in the scheduler list, and it also considers the "Skip next run if Run Now was used" option. If you want to run some events from API only, you can disable them to prevent scheduler from running them at all.

It is possible, there's new API command encoderstatus that returns statuses for all broadcasting encoders.

For these reasons the player thought simultaneously for advertising
Perhaps, there can be another solution e.g. analyze RadioBOSS reports to see if advertising was started.

Besides this: the calculation of sweapers, takes into account the time of mixture of the main player?
So far my tests were all with the player simultaneously, in which never mixes and types of files.
Mixing is not taken into account - it calculates as if tracks go without any mixing.

Only by way of an anecdote:
On one occasion all seemed to work ok, but windows firewall limited transmission to internet of the internal server of RadioBOSS.
Reboot PC I fix the problem

Yes, at first I thought this. Only I need to detect the beginning of advertising in half a second. Do 2 readings per second of all a record, I guess will require much CPU.

Of course, I assumed it. Several files can make that the sweepers is one or two seconds more short. The player simultaneously solves the problem, and echo works excellent.

Overlays never sent the title to the server and I don't see a reason when this will be useful (except for some really special cases). The UI will be updated to disable the "Send task title" option when you have overlay selected to notify that titles are not going to be sent. Another option is to send the title only when the option is checked. I'll think about it - no promises for now :)

The log file was deactivated for fewer write operations since the information was not important and to increase the life of the disk (SSD). although it could be activated but there are some problem  :(

Anyway the txt CurrentSong has to be analyzed for RDS. so you have 2 files to read every half second.

I also use, overlay player for a beep hour. It could detect if it is different from "[a] beep" but then if you need another overlay event is not going to work.

And most troubling of all of this method: I can not detect when he finished advertising. In the log is not written anything when finished. The idea of ​​the event name in the txt CurrentSong, is that when the event ends, the txt say the name of the main player, or if you stop it is empty txt.
Events should last forever 8 minutes (sweepers) but it is not 100% reliable and there may be some overlap or silence.

Here is my request: a global hotkey for microphone.

Right now the default hotkey is space, which works great, but only then RadioBoss is the active window.
For those of use who broadcast live and talk a lot, this is the key that we use very often - to switch between talk and music.

Global hotkey (e.g. Ctrl+F1 or something like that), so we don't have to make sure the window is active all the time, would be huge help!

If you select the track, does it show the correct Playcount and BPM in Track Information? From the screenshot it appears that it failed to read additional tag information (where playcount, BPM and other fields are stored).
Title: RadioBOSS 5.5 [beta] Stuttering Mic using Press To Talk Hotkey
Post by: Michael G on September 12, 2016, 04:24:09 AM
Hi,

Whilst using the Beta 5.5 I encountered an issue with my mic during a live broadcast.  I decided to use the Hotkey F8 for the Press To Talk (PTT) feature.  I noticed that when held pressed to talk, RadioBoss freezes and I was unable to benefit from the Countdown feature for my Intro's and Outros. I also noticed that whilst still pressed down, that the track I had just played was repeated and that I was unable to press any part of RadioBoss to play a Jingle from the Cart or the next track.  RadioBoss failed to respond whilst the hotkey was pressed for PTT.   

Listening back to the show, I realised that my mic had stuttered all the way though my live voice tracks.  I have included a short clip in 4 parts, so you can hear it happen in the first 3.  The 4th is just there to show that it worked fine afterwards.

SOLUTION
I changed the settings by unchecking Press to talk so the hotkey F8 acted as an on - off switch. I was not aware of the "Stuttering Mic" issue until afterwards so thankfully the rest of the show was unaffected.

Thank you

Mickey

UPDATE:  It seems that the Hotkey F8 was pressed and held down as you would for Press To Talk but the settings were in on / off mode causing the Mic to turn on and off giving the Stuttering effect
 BUT! in Press to talk mode, the screen does freeze or seems unresponsive.  when holding down the F8 Mic hotkey.   The jingles from the cart wall work when pressed but the  "Animation and countdown" stops until you release the F8 Hotkey. This happens to the LED VU Meter and the "Visuals Graphics ON AIR "Bar top centre. 

PS.  The "Animations" resume if you right click on the cart wall bringing up the small menu.

I have no screen recording facility but I can record if it helps identify the issue!

Is be added a hotkey to change the rating in RB 5.5? I'm thinking that a good shortcut would be Alt or shift + number in the keyboard numeric.
You would be very practical for tracks without rating.

Yes, a hot key will be added in the next update. The update is delayed a bit as we want to include the updated user manual there as well.

For the getplaylist/getplaylist2 commands, it's not decided yet but either of those commands will be extended to allow getting the full playlist information.

  • Added hot key to change song rating
Combination of 3 keys is awkward. Maybe would be better to do it from the hotkey panel.
Also there are some errors:
-Does not work the keypad numeric for this. (only key numeric of notebook)
-Does the rating 10, (key '0')

Another very annoying thing:
Window preview, change track becomes "active window" and removes the focus from the playlist, so the shortcut for rating the stops working

Be can do something to prevent this?
The idea is to edit large amounts of songs ratings using keyboard shortcuts. And you tool prelisten is very necessary for this.

On the other hand I see that to preview the shortcut cannot be modified. And the default involves the mouse. I want to get rid of the, by issues of speed of operation.


An example of usage would be:
1 walk the playlist (with the keys up and down)
2-if I need to do prelisten I pressed F1: starts the preview but the focus has not changed. (for this I would like to only be a key) To stop could be press F1 again up the same song.
3 - when I need to change the rating option of duress shift, alt or control + the number.
4 - follow along with the arrows on the keyboard already that focus never change from the list

I see that F1 is destined for another task (do not need a shortcut) and cannot be used as a hotkey.  :(
Would be a great key very comfortable for prelisten.

I have much interest in this topic.
I am many hours editing tags and setting ratings, and organizing music in the playlist. (for now I use the mouse for almost everything).
It more tedious is edit the rating with the menu popup
These shortcuts well implemented can help me to make the work much more faster

It's nearly impossible to find a range of 10 sequential hot keys, that's why the 3 key combination (Ctrl+Alt+number). If you have any other ideas I'm ready to hear them :)

Yes, this is by design, preview player always takes the focus (and allows to press ESC to stop prelisten). You can do the following: start prelisten, press ESC, press hot key to change rating.

On the other hand I see that to preview the shortcut cannot be modified. And the default involves the mouse. I want to get rid of the, by issues of speed of operation.
You can press Alt+R to prelisten without using a mouse (the Alt+R also works in Search and Ads scheduler).

There is no problem in using the numbers for this. What's more, I think it is a good idea. The problem is the control key + shift, you should work with any of the two. (not the two together)
Need a shortcut of just two keys. Control or shift + the number of the keyboard

the format of date here is day/month/year

then the stipulated date that it should run the event is the third Sunday in June

However today is the third Sunday but September and the event is played(see the list of events)

Ctrl+number and Alt+number combinations are already busy for other functions, and Shift+number is not a good choice (it will also require special processing as you can, for example, use Shift+1 in Tag editor).

I think that you interpret wrong the image.
the format of date here is day/month/year
It doesn't change anything. If you use both Start Date and Week Days, then Date specifies the start, and the event will run every 3rd sunday every month after the specified start date. This is mentioned here, in the Time and Day section: http://manual.djsoft.net/radioboss/en/scheduler_options.htm

I think that this was not clear.
As I said earlier, I am not in disagreement with the keypad to set the rating.
But there are two bug here:
-The number "0" that should set the rating to "10" does not work
-Does not work the keypad on my pc.

Therefore, it can be useful to make customizable key for the keyboard shortcut. Persons that not many cut-off by default, we can configure it for a purpose more useful, depending on each need.

Shift more numbers of a desktop keyboard is not used for symbols. Maybe it is a good idea there. Only will be limited the shortcut for PC with numeric keypad.

Good afternoon , thank you for all of this fantastic team. the error in that even a limited user could access the advertising programmer has been fixed. To contribute further step here that I realized the program, even if a user can not add or remove effects can still clear those who are working .

Yes, it appears that the problem only exists on laptop keyboard - I'll see what can be done about it.

Therefore, it can be useful to make customizable key for the keyboard shortcut. Persons that not many cut-off by default, we can configure it for a purpose more useful, depending on each need.
This will be planned for the future versions: much more hot keys, many not assigned by default.

It's been always working like this, so nothing was changed. I'm not sure that what you need can be easily automated - perhaps, you can try using the Event expiration feature.

So is.

Update:
Sometimes it works well

Totally ramdom, sometimes works with the same files and sometimes not.


Always be recognized as voicetrack (italic)

The problem is that does not respect the intro of songs, as does voicetrack. Reproduces immediately

Those files voicetrack always them use with a jingle before (that has a time of mixing different that the songs). Now it insert between song and song.
Maybe the error already is present in voicetrack files

This will be fixed as a part of revamping the crossfade engine, in RadioBOSS 5.5.

There is a small error in the command Getplaylist2. When a track does not have established rating reports "0", rather than space in white
This is correct. 0 means "rating not set" and 1-10 is the rating value if the rating is set.

2. Follow music in window "tool track" this does not obey the instructions of Time for intro and outro
3. When INSTRUCTIONS without obeying, transition play as soloist, overlapping A little on the introduction of the next track.

I am using the new filters and priorities based on year.
I like very much achieved!.
However I would like to increase the priority gradually from the 2013 to the year current. (three years ago)
(because the macro previus, will be the 2015)
The only way current is enter the year manually, but to the year next open that change everything again.
I would like to perform a type of subtraction for example:
Code: [Select]
Current-3
Is possible to add this in the filters and priorities?. Thank you!

Do you have access to Shoutcast logs - does it give you any reason on why it doesn't accept the title update? Do you use the same settings in both versions?

Strange bug dragging tracks in the playlist.
Lugged track-doubling (and replacement which was in another place).
Then when passing the mouse they were disappearing all tracks in the list.
Generated this report.

Unfortunately not be like the step-by-step problem can be reproduced.

Appeared reports error constantly. I had to restart the program.

From the bug reports, it appears that the underlying list that holds the items became corrupted. Did you work with the active playlist (where the track was playing) or was it a secondary playlist?

Hello,
all beta 5.4 versions have this I think is a bug, if you deleted tracks in the playlist, while a track is played under ON AIR, then activate and load an event schedule for any reload tracks of the player, if you select the first song and you go with the drop down menu whatever event, go to "ADD tO PLAY QUEUE" nothing happens, the song does not appear on the framework NEXT tRACK, will still be played at the end of the track that was playing, I tried this on 2 pCs and 2 different installations the problem remains.

OK... It's hard to tell why it may happen, even in theory. Currently it looks like one-time glitch. Please let me know if this happens again.

Yes, I confirm this version has the same problem, the only version that does not have this problem, until now is 5.5.0.0, in fact as you can see from the attached photo, and 'just uploaded the next event, while the track is' still playing the previous event, as you can see the next track left empty.

Also check the display of tracks in the playlist, it is not 'correct, after loading, automatic and using "RUN NOW" often lack the BPM information and form "TRACK -% title% ARTIST -% artist%" is not respected as you can see from the picture, if you try to correct error by changing the data from the panel TRACK iNFORMATION (which does not give information even if they are) it generates this error (see photo 2). How do you see the number 3 'track loaded correctly and all data are available, the track number 4 is not' properly loaded in the form "TRACK -% title% ARTIST -% artist%" and BPM data and track information are not visible. In version 5.5.0.0. this does not happen.
Note that the track where I tried restoring data, it is not the track On Air.

Generated this report.

Unfortunately not be like the step-by-step problem can be reproduced.

Appeared reports error constantly. I had to restart the program.

During a Live show, I deleted a track from the active playlist set to "Stop after this track".   The space where the track was displayed in the track window was still present after I deleted the track.  Usually the Space (gap) is closed as the playlist moves up to fill the gap. 

In this case there was a gap and when I proceeded to move my mouse over each track in my playlist it removed them too until the playlist was completely gone.   I switched to my second playlist and that worked for a while.

The were quite a few tracks on the playlist and as each one was "Removed" and after delay of a few seconds, I started to get an Multiple Access Violation Errors. I clicked "ok" and continued to receive Access Violation Errors the number of which seemed to correspond to the number of tracks "Deleted".   Eventually, RB crashed.

Upon restart of RB, the playlists and tracks were intact.

I have sent the bug report via RB containing 44 Bugs :

It doesn't seem to happen here, the information appears to be correctly read every time and title format is respected... How often does it work incorrectly in your case?

As for tag edit error, the text is slightly incorrect (will be fixed). It still means that the tag can't be saved for some reason (not only because it's playing). If you can't edit the tag for a certain file, please send it to support@djsoft.net for analysis.

Hello,
in version 5.5.0.7 loading problems have been fixed in NEXT TRACK window, but the problems remain on the information of the tracks loaded in playlist 1: as you see in the picture (playlist automatically loaded to the set itself) lack many BPM information, PlayCount. Now you can edit the songs from the TRACK INFO window saving the selected tracks the correct form (TRACK -% title% ARTIST -% artist%) automatically by mistake instead are loaded traces in the form that you see wrong .. This we can see from the image, the Green arrows are properly informed by me set PREFERENCES, the red arrows are the form that is set to load the playlist INCORRECTLY.

The CD playback problem remains the same, he plays the audio CD normally but when we add any other audio track, the program skips the CD track that is playing to the next. Note this only happens if you are playing the CD track and active player that is, if the secondary player does not happen so, however if the secondary player is marked with active also happens the same problem.

Good afternoon, I would like to know the possibility of leaving the command to add ADSCHEDULER Audio the same way it works in the music library and RadioBOSS as image. The detail is that when we need to add any files, some types of audio are not shown (wma, m4a ...) unless we change the type to any file in this case shows all kinds of audio, but is also showing all files that are generated by programming ADSCHEDULER (comercial.wma.adscheduler) as well as any files that are inside the folder. I wish podesse show all kinds of audio file more without showing anything when we choose the type of audio archive!

When tracks are dragged from the search of RB.

This track belonged to a playlist PlayList Gen Pro generated and loaded with the scheduler.

Randomly sometimes when tracks are dragged to the list the metadata are not loaded. (it is very seldom, but not before passing)
Where do you drag the tracks from? How often does it happen?
When tracks are dragged from the search of RB.

Also yesterday I found a track that not you had loaded the metadata. (appeared the name of the file).
This track belonged to a playlist PlayList Gen Pro generated and loaded with the scheduler.

The frequency is very low, but this happens. Before not happen
I think this is similar to the bug reported here - https://www.djsoft.net/smf/index.php/topic,4651.msg22793.html#msg22793 but I'm not sure what the cause could be. It doesn't reproduce here on any of the computers, no matter how hard we tried :) It's in the list of bugs, should be fixed once the cause is found.

Good morning, I want to thank for meeting the previous requests. I want to raise an interesting question regarding the safety of the system to access the user permissions. Even not having permission to access eg the Library, Adscheduler and others, these controls can be accessed without permission, entering the RadioBOSS installation folder as image. For new users it would be no problem, but for those who know a little windows, you'll quickly find that gap can interfere with the radio programming improperly. If you can correct, thank you.

Post by: djsoft on October 19, 2016, 04:18:57 AM
Yes, I agree with you. For someone with computer knowledge it will be no problem to overcome the user permissions feature. On the other hand, blocking access to installation folders, and also blocking all other ways (thousands of them!) to mess things up is totally different level and I'm afraid we have no plans on building a 100% protection against this (way too expensive to implement).

If someone's determined to break the system, they have lots of possibilities - breaking the computer physically is the last resort in case they can't break the software :)

I'll see if access to exe's can be blocked if they are started directly from the folder - but as I remember, there was some reason not to add this protection when we originally implemented this feature.

Good day, what could be done something similar to what happens when the program is in demo version, in which case we can not run the Adscheduler and PlayListGeneratorPro the system folder, but only by RadioBOSS program. If you can leave these modules to run this way without major changes in the program, would be a solution at least Adsheduler in the case is the most important because it generated advertising schedule. So would not block all files in the folder, that already discourages someone trying something since we are not talking about hackers.

This is what was implemented in the past, but this was later disabled - I don't recall the exact reason, though. I think this will be re-enabled in one of the next updates.

hi, I confirm that even in this 5.5.1.0 version that appears to be ultimately there are problems loading the metadata. As you can see from the picture some tracks are uploaded regularly and other tracks, there are regularly loaded suiccede already several previous Beta versions point unfortunately I can not explain and verify the conditions under which you are experiencing these bugs. But I can confirm that this bug does not exist in the beta version 5.5.0.0.
I checked out the latest version, and it seems that the problem of metadata continues to exist. loading difficulties of metadata in the playlist in some cases the metadata can not be changed because it is not displayed. Where appears in metadata can be updated by clicking the save button. Unfortunately, the problem of random verification and then you can not understand what are the reasons why this happens, I am attaching also a movie so that you can see better what the situation is.

Thank you for the video. I see the other problem there - the speed of metadata loading is extremely slow. It shouldn't be like this, it should work somewhat 1000% faster at least. Do you use any 3rd party antivirus? If so, try removing it to see if it fixed the problem. Also check CPU load in task manager to see what programs consume CPU (if there are any). The speed problem can be the core for metadata problem, so it's important. RadioBOSS has timeouts for operations (to prevent software freeze) - if the tag can't be read during certain time amount, it gives up and stops reading.

This is only when RadioBoss is started ( 5.5.1.0 ). When closed, no such behavour. No antivirus on that PC (XP Pro SP3)
If it`s something that "writes" on HDD - then it must be stopped. Like it was with saving playlist every 5 seconds (thing that i reported and was fixed OK)

hello, these are the characteristics of my computer. This computer has never given problems in all versions that have been installed to RadioBOSS, I refer especially to those final. No loading problem, no speed problem, no problem occurs with the beta version 5. 1. 0. 0 beta
I confirm to you that these software are installed on different machines including an Intel Core 5 with 16 GB of RAM and SSD 500 GB so a fast computer properly to support all versions of RadioBOSS. I think, therefore, that you have to consider that there is something to remember in the metadata software. If you need other movies I will try to ship them to have. I say again, that in some boots this problem is not there. In the movie pc runs only RadioBOSS program and the virus used and Baidu.

Why there is "clock icon" blinks next to the cursor in a equal periods of time , when RadioBoss is scanning the playlist ?

When I drag a track (from an external explorer) with file type assigned RadioBOSS do not assign/show color for that file.
The only possibility I found for this to happen is when RadioBOSS is just started (or playlist loaded) and it's being processed (you see the percentage e.g. [...20%] in the playlist status bar). In this case, file types will not be shown for tracks that are not processed yet. Is this the case, or you see that the playlist is completely loaded, and file types are not assigned?

There flat in incorporate next data Bases of RadioBOSS? I am in need of categories and subcategories for organizing music

Organize current methods is becoming difficult.
Something like that I would like to first upon.

Where tracks of a category you can drag to another, or from the file Explorer for example.

I was looking at other systems as PowerGold and is can make things fantastic. I would not have let Playlist Generator pro.

Currently, categories in RadioBOSS are created by using multiple music library files. There are plans on changing this, including the possibility to use external database (e.g. MySql), but currently I'm not sure when it's gong to happen.

These categories contain decades, and an internal sub genres. Then in PLGen Pro you can have a very strict control of what is emitted from very simple way.
For example a program of classics of rock from the 90's and 80's can be very easy.
In addition manage this with drag and drop is much more simple to use playlist.
Just drag from a window of a file manager, playlist, or another category is I could import the XML.

I was testing different software generation of playlists and almost all use this method.
Do one test and the result is great.

Drag a song from one category to another, the song, from the source category is removed. If you want to keep dragging by pressing control, then it is copied.

In RadioBOSS it's done a different way, using the Comment filter. Please see this page: http://manual.djsoft.net/radioboss/en/plgen-cat2.htm

The idea is that all tracks have information assigned in the comments e.g. "rock, 80s, slow" and you select tracks based on the comment filter.

Organizing music library is categories is totally different task. Most of the tracks fill in more than one category, for instance.

It's totally different task to prepare categories, then assigning tracks to categories, and updating it constantly. It will also likely require setting up database server... I'm not sure currently that RadioBOSS should move this way. But maybe a more convenient UI to edit comment field.

Additional tag is not applied for WAV files 9because WAV files do not support APEv2 tag where intro-outro information is stored). Please use other file format, for instance, FLAC.

Please check playlist generator log (you can send it here): click Settings->Open Settings Folder, open Log, and there you'll see "playlistgenerator.log" file - I suppose it was unable to find a track to fit all rules, and simply took random one.

Wow !! 8,000 titles change wav to flac? In the mp3 no problem, it is the minority in my library of music, these would remain so.

Probe en Flac and only works INTRO. NO OUTRO works, finally, this OUTRO I do not care if it does not work.
In this service "Voicetrak" on the song INTRO I interest me much more than work well.

Too bad we can not do Voicetrak in wav files and it seems very strange. Well, hopefully not too distant future, RadioBoss can work well in this area of Voicetrack. Seguire looking outside.

Thank you, great RadioBoss tool.

Please check playlist generator log (you can send it here): click Settings->Open Settings Folder, open Log, and there you'll see "playlistgenerator.log" file - I suppose it was unable to find a track to fit all rules, and simply took random one.

Wow !! 8,000 titles change wav to flac? In the mp3 no problem, it is the minority in my library of music, these would remain so.

Probe en Flac and only works INTRO. NO OUTRO works, finally, this OUTRO I do not care if it does not work.
In this service "Voicetrak" on the song INTRO I interest me much more than work well.

Too bad we can not do Voicetrak in wav files and it seems very strange. Well, hopefully not too distant future, RadioBoss can work well in this area of Voicetrack. Seguire looking outside.

Thank you, great RadioBoss tool.
We disabled WAV file tagging on purpose: adding the tag to WAV file renders it as "corrupted" for some other software. So one option is to convert WAV files to FLAC. Or we can add a setting to enable WAV file tagging, but I'm not sure why to use WAV format? It has very limited tagging support, also occupies lots of disk space.

The same thing happens to create two playlists with "Playlist Generator PRO"
Can you please provide more information on the problem?

Do you know the preset name where you encountered the problem? As you can see in the log, there are lots of presets that generate "Unable to find appropriate track" error - this means one or more of the rules is too strict.

I understand explained regarding WAV.
To not keep trying to understand whether certain functions is compatible with this or another format, I want to ask uprightly; Is it advisable or RadioBoss 100% compatible with WAV files functions?
On the other hand, the WAV use in transmission online is much better than mp3, then I do not understand, because discard WAV if supported ID3V2 for even minor details?

Regarding re-enable this feature intro and outro to WAV would be wonderful, if not inappropriate and unstable for this format.

Hello Dimitry, thank you very much for the clarification, everything is clearer now. Use Wavelab for audio editing and with the "Process By Lots" will make a conversion from Wav to Flac very fast.

Only started happening recently if I attempt to "New Playlist" (asks to save current playlist)"Open", "save" or "save as". 
There is a 3-4 second pause and where one expects the "file Folder" to pop up to enter the "savefile" name, the error appears instead.
Radioboss is unresponsive after this and has to be closed by task manager or the Options via the "Details" button of the error popup.

I have reinstalled but to no avail.  Tried previous build to no avail too.

If I attempt to restore settings the error also occurs.

Resetting to defaults had no effect

Changing the theme to Windows 10 or Default has not resolved the issue.

ACCESS VIOLATION

Actually, I am getting the error if there is any attempt to save or load. I have attempted to insert a voice track into the playlist and the error pops up!

From the bug reports you've sent, it appears that the problem occurs when RadioBOSS calls Windows Shell functions to display system dialogs (save, open, select folder etc). Usually, the reason is a 3rd party software that installs Shell extension and this extension causes such problems.

If you can recall what software you've installed recently, then removing it should solve the problem. I also suggest to perform virus check, sometimes virus activity can cause such errors.

There's nothing we can fix from RadioBOSS, the issue is somewhere else.

Track tool Bug?
Frequency - Intermittent (Cannot replicate conditions on demand)

At times, When using track tool to "Set" the start and "End" markers, I get the following:

 Setting the "Start" marker is fine but setting the"End" marker by clicking the checkbox, sets the end marker at the end and if I attempt to select file type, the time value for "End" Marker becomes highlighted (Blue Background) and the dropdown menu does not function.

This also happens when attempting to check or uncheck the "Set" boxes.

If I change the time values in a box that not been checked, the checkbox becomes ticked but there is no way of unticking.  It seems to apply to all dropdown menus on track tool and "Cancel".

Thanks for reporting this one - it happens because the focus remains in the checkbox, and pressing Space checks the checkbox too. Will be fixed in the next update.

To fix this, for the "Played track emphasizing" select the same color as you have selected for the "Playlist font".

This does not reproduce here, and even quickly checking Track Tool internals, there appears to be no connection between File Type and End (or any other markers). Same for box ticking and manual value entry, it works fine here too - the value is set and there's no problem to tick or untick the box.

More information is needed:
- what RadioBOSS version do you use and what operating system
- did you see any error messages (please also click in RadioBOSS Help->Contact Support->Send bug reports), it could be that some other problem occurred and the UI problem you experience is a result of it
- do you use any 3rd party software that works with languages, or does form auto fill or something like this? If so, try removing it.

Dmitriy it doesn't work.
Let me tell you why:

A) In Settings > File Types there is a section for customizing colors (font and backround) for individual files.

B) In Settings > View > Style there is a section which customize ALL played tracks, not individually

My friend has customized not only the color of the files but backround too (yellow, pink, blue etc., etc.). So, RadioBOSS has two rules for showing files in playlist:
Becouse in RadioBOSS 5.3 there is no option [Played track emphasizing] the tview tracks in playlist is not affected. So my friend who payed an update for RadioBOSS had to go back to that version.

A good solution will be a switch button or a checkbox to activate/deactivate [Played track emphasizing].

You can effectively turn off the "Played track emphasizing" feature if you select the same color (background and font) as you have selected for the "Playlist font".

For instance, select black font color for playlist font and for played track emphasizing, then you will have file type colors for played and non played tracks.

Update on the problem of the bar Intro disappears.
Recently wrote an application in Embarcadero Delphi, in which there is a panel which I modified its width by means of a timer. In some moments the width is zero. (and it makes not visible)

Sometimes then not appears more to restart the program. (as in RadioBOSS).

I think that could treat is of an error in the compiler

Post by: djsoft on December 11, 2016, 04:53:24 AM
Yes, unfortunately, Delphi VCL has some bugs, even in the most recent versions. We report them but it takes time to fix them (some bugs stay unfixed for years). However, I've never seen the bug with Intro bar myself (or that changing the panel width to non-zero value makes its width zero).

From RadioBOSS code, I don't see how it can disappear, even theoretically, so it may well be the bug in Delphi.

If you have reliable way to reproduce it, you can report it to https://quality.embarcadero.com (or if you don't have an account there, you can send it to me and I'll report it).

Hello Dmitry, I watched this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kW_C6fZ7kaA) and has things much more elaborated for VoiceTrack and Sigue Editor. Some ideas that I highlight for future versions:
-In Sigue editor would be good that when you load music with voicetrack, load it in the position that is emitted the voicetrack (on the intro of the music)
-Mark the intros of the songs on waveform for a quick adjustment into Sigue editor.
-Moments in which the music is more it down and then up. (now only allowed FadeIn and FadeOut)
I like to have everything in one window (Voicetrack, Sigue Editor), Maybe you can add to a zone of work

Hello,

Loving the progress RadioBOSS is making recently :) I have a few things...

Firstly:
I noticed on the API now 'Wrong Password' has an associated error number E001...

a) Is there a list of all possible errors?
b) 'Nothing to do' does not have an error number. Will it have one? If not, maybe E000 if it's not in use? :)

Secondly, I noticed the activation of the product (I am still yet to purchase a license and using a trial version for testing) uses http and not https - are there plans to use SSL for this to make the process more secure?

Finally, in the event a network stream is being played, the behaviour at the moment is to go to the next track after it times out or gets an error. Is it possible to allow this behaviour to be changed, to either keep retrying or try X amount of times before continuing in the playlist?

Thanks in advance!

Possible errors depend on the command you use. Currently there's only E001 IIRC :) Error code 0 usually means "success" so for the "Nothing to do" we should use code 2. I'll note that for the future.

Secondly, I noticed the activation of the product (I am still yet to purchase a license and using a trial version for testing) uses http and not https - are there plans to use SSL for this to make the process more secure?
It useS HTTPS first, but if that fails for some reason (e.g. ssl library can't be loaded), it falls back to HTTP.

Finally, in the event a network stream is being played, the behaviour at the moment is to go to the next track after it times out or gets an error. Is it possible to allow this behaviour to be changed, to either keep retrying or try X amount of times before continuing in the playlist?

Hello,

Thanks for coming back to me on this  ;D.

So, a stream duration must be specified for it to be retried on connection failure - but what if you wanted it to play indefinitely but remain playing/retrying in the event of a failure?

Also unless I have missed something, there is no way to specify the duration when using the inserttrack API command?

Thanks

You can specify huge duration, like 1000 hours.

Also unless I have missed something, there is no way to specify the duration when using the inserttrack API command?
It's possible, add #N to the end of the URL to specify duration in seconds. For instance:
Code: [Select]
http://example.com:8000/ #60 - play stream for 60 seconds.

Hello, I just noticed a strange anomaly. Perhaps its a bug. When I go to the "Style" section under "View" in the Settings and select a colour for "Played track emphasizing" (for both font and background), I find that it is not effected if a file type has its own designated font and background colour. Interestingly, the "Selection colour" does work when you try to highlight that file type on the playlist, but not the "Played track emphasizing" colours after the file has played. It stays the same colour. I dunno if I'm making sense.

First I select a colour light blue for the file type "Music", which is light blue, as follows:

(https://ufile.io/47302) (4.1.jpg)

Then I go to the "Style" section under "View" in the Settings and select a colour for "Played track emphasizing" (for both font and background). I choose the colour gray for the background and black for text. For "Playing track emphasizing" I selected a red background and white bold text (of a large size).

(https://ufile.io/3bd84) (3.1.jpg)

For the selection colour, I selected Fuchsia:

(https://ufile.io/f08fe) (6.jpg)

So ideally, the background for unplayed songs in the playlist should be light blue (with black text), for played songs it should be gray (with black text), and for the playing song should be red (with white text). Meanwhile the song selected on the playlist should be Fuchsia (pink).

What I get is this:

(https://ufile.io/ea1a9) (1.jpg)

As you can see,  the background for unplayed songs in the playlist is light blue, for played songs it stays light blue, and for the playing song it also stays light blue. The text is just emboldened, but in the wrong colour. Meanwhile the song selected on the playlist is Fuchsia (pink), as it should be.

When I change the file type for the played song and the playing song from "Music" to "Command" which is using default colour settings (I didn't alter it), THEN I see the changes I made being applied to the played song and playing song on the playlist:

(https://ufile.io/38beb) (5.jpg)

So like I said earlier, what seems to happen is that when you go to the "Style" section under "View" in the Settings and select a colour for "Played track emphasizing" (for both font and background) or for "Playing track emphasizing", the changes are not effected if the file type in question has its own designated font and background colour that you happened to choose for it.

Yes, it's a question of priority. Currently file type color settings take precedence over "played track" and "playing track" emphasizing settings. The "selection" color is top priority. It's not right or wrong, it's how it works. During the beta "emphasizing" settings were priority over file type and we received lots of complaints, like "file type color settings become ignored after a track was played", that's why now it works with file type colors priority.

Oh, okay. Thank you for the clarification. I wonder then if there might be another way to distinguish between played songs and unplayed songs on the playlist that's not colour specific - let's say for example creating an optional "status" column that displays a check mark icon [✓] for items that have been played and a dot mark icon ( · ) for those that are pending. Would this be possible? This way the colours are preserved but we'd still have a way of knowing what has already played with a quick glance at the playlist. I've seen something like that in RCS Zetta (screenshot attached).

Post by: djsoft on January 06, 2017, 04:07:58 AM
It changes the icon - unplayed tracks are blue, and played are grey. Please see the screenshot attached. However, depending on what background color you use for playlist window, it may not be clearly visible. Thank you for the suggestion about status column, we'll consider it for the future updates.

Sometimes I have this error. RadioCaster is located in another pc reading this file.
Another option may be the antivirus, but has marked RadioBOSS as exception

NowPlaying can not be updated: Cannot create file "M:\...\CurrentSong.txt". El proceso no tiene acceso al archivo porque está siendo utilizado por otro proceso
Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.5 [beta]

It could be that RadioCaster reads the file, and at the exact same moment RadioBOSS tries to write to it, and that produces the "File is being used by another process" message. We'll do something about it in the future updates - thank you for pointing out this issue.

Hello,

Having finally purchased RadioBOSS (Thanks Dmitry!) I have found a few issues and although we are not using the beta on our production machine, I think they are present in both the latest + latest beta (I have not tested on the machine where we have been using the trial version).

1) When turning off the visualization in the options (vu meter), whatever reading it is at gets stuck - the vu meter is not cleared down when it is turned off. Maybe it should even be dimmed to show it's not active?

2) If a network stream is added to the playlist, played and then immediately removed, the title does not get updated and gets stuck with a buffering title (See screenshot). You can reproduce this issue by using cURL for example:

curl "http://localhost:9000/?action=inserttrack&filename=http://127.0.0.1:8000/listen.pls?sid=1&pos=1"
curl "http://localhost:9000/?cmd=play 1"
curl "http://localhost:9000/?action=delete&pos=1

Also when using the "streamtitle=" option I see the same behaviour.

3) The sending of metadata to the shoutcast server only happens when a track is played. We have RadioBOSS setup to always send some static text as the song title but this does not happen until we play a track even though the setting is set to send updates 'periodically' (At the moment we are just using RadioBOSS to send Input 1 to the shoutcast server and not actually playing any tracks within RadioBOSS).

4) If the current track which is playing is deleted from the playlist and then RadioBOSS is restarted, it does not begin playing (It is set to 'Resume Playback' rather than 'Start Playlist'

Thanks!

Thank you for letting us know about those issues. 1 and 2 should be fixed in the next update.

3 - RadioBOSS doesn't send the title every time, even if you have the "Periodical" setting if the title did not change (compared to when it was previously updated on the server). Maybe it's the case?

4 - Appears to be a bug, although I'm not sure how it should "Resume" if playing track was removed. Perhaps, it was made so intentionally, I'll check previous bug reports about this feature.

3 - I see, so a track has to be played for the title to be updated. If you are overriding the metadata for track title (So you always want the track title to say the same text) but do not play a track and are simply using RadioBOSS to broadcast an input without playing any track, this means the title metadata will never be sent - this is how I spotted the issue. It can be easily reproduced by overriding the metadata and closing + opening RadioBOSS -> streams are connected -> no track title gets sent even though it is override in the metadata (radio boss is not playing a track at this time).

4 - I thought this may be by design (intentional) but wanted to check. I know the track no longer exists in the playlist, but then this means resuming + starting the playlist have the same effect in this case. For us, it would be useful to be able to decide the behavour.

Thanks in advance

Also, adding #999 for example does not seem to change the duration of a stream. I am using

curl "http://localhost:9000/?action=inserttrack&filename=http://127.0.0.1:8000/listen.pls?sid=1 #999 &pos=1"

But I have also tried:
"http://localhost:9000/?action=inserttrack&filename=http://127.0.0.1:8000/listen.pls?sid=1 #999&pos=1"

It just doesn't seem to work. Has the #N always been present? We are using 5.5.5.0

Thanks

It doesn't require track to be played. It will sedt the title only once, when first connected to the server, and if the text is fixed, then it won't be sent again. It's possible that the server skips the initial title update, and RadioBOSS doesn't make further title updates due to repeat protection (it's already sent that title, no need to send it again).

4 - I thought this may be by design (intentional) but wanted to check. I know the track no longer exists in the playlist, but then this means resuming + starting the playlist have the same effect in this case. For us, it would be useful to be able to decide the behavour.
Yes, it is by design. I checked the bug tracker, and this feature used to work as "if a track can't be resumed, start playlist from the beginning" - we received multiple complaints about it. And now that's why if you delete playing track, or stop playback, "Resume playback" will not start playback.

Also, adding #999 for example does not seem to change the duration of a stream. I am using

curl "http://localhost:9000/?action=inserttrack&filename=http://127.0.0.1:8000/listen.pls?sid=1 #999 &pos=1"

But I have also tried:
"http://localhost:9000/?action=inserttrack&filename=http://127.0.0.1:8000/listen.pls?sid=1 #999&pos=1"

It just doesn't seem to work. Has the #N always been present? We are using 5.5.5.0
The problem here is that you have "?", "#" and space in your request string. You need to URL-encode those parameters, the request should look like this:

http://localhost:9000/?action=inserttrack&filename=http://127.0.0.1:8000/listen.pls%3Fsid=1%20%23999&pos=1
Title: Re: RadioBOSS 5.5 [beta]
Post by: eddr on January 15, 2017, 02:51:10 PM
Excellent, thanks for this! Initially it didn't work as I was calling cURL from a batch file and to get literal % you have to use it twice, so if you are using cURL in a batch file it would be:

http://localhost:9000/?action=inserttrack&filename=http://127.0.0.1:8000/listen.pls%%3Fsid=1%%20%%23999&pos=1

Unfortunately, even with the duration now specified it is not having the desired effect - if I close down the SHOUTcast server (running on 127.0.0.1) RadioBOSS does not keep retrying to connect and moves on to the next track. The following error is displayed in the log:
 
Stream connection lost/unstable: reconnecting
Unable to play! Error code 41 (unsupported file format).

The same error happens (Unable to play! Error code 41 (unsupported file format).) if the SHOUTCast servers source is disconnected for a brief moment (which can happen sometimes) and this as well, causes RadioBOSS to go on to the next track which is not what we want! :)

With regards to point 3 (track title) - I don't think this is happening and I can easily reproduce it, here's how I can:
1) Stopped broadcasting in RadioBOSS and also stop playing any tracks. Ensured RadioBOSS will not start playing any tracks when it is re-started.
2) Restarted the SHOUTCast server to clear any metadata just in case
3) Opened RadioBOSS (No tracks playing). Started broadcasting - no track information is sent.
4) Waited a few minutes - still nothing (Periodic is set to 30 seconds).
5) Started playing a track in RadioBOSS - now the static text defined for metadata track title is sent.

Thanks for confirming the behaviour of point 4.

I have noticed that API commands next track and delete track don't get logged to the API output window but play does? Is it a bug that they are not logged?

Also a small feature request: There is no Date column for the output log - it's hard to keep track of what has happened when if scrolling through the log. Would it be possible to make it auto scroll as well?

Thanks

This is "by design". RadioBOSS tries to reconnect but if it sees an error again (internally it even does two attempts IIRC), it gives up and goes on to play the next track. This is to prevent long periods of silence on air.

The next command is logged after it's executed, but delete is not logged. I'll see what can be done about it :)

The log will auto scroll automatically if you scroll it to the very bottom. When it's not at the bottom, it will keep the position (this allows to browse the log, because if auto scroll is always active, it will jump to the bottom on every new logged event). Date column will be added at some point in the future. Note that log keeps last 500 or so entries only, and this usually covers about 48 hours.

I thought this was what the silence detector may have been for  ;) It looks like this behaviour is not going to work for us, I don't want to pollute this thread so I'll open a new one to explain further why this is a major problem for us, maybe you have some ideas how to get around it.

Great! :)

Great! You're right, next is logged sorry. The insertion of a track (inserttrack) is also not.

The log will auto scroll automatically if you scroll it to the very bottom. When it's not at the bottom, it will keep the position (this allows to browse the log, because if auto scroll is always active, it will jump to the bottom on every new logged event).

The behaviour makes perfect sense - Thanks. Date column would be very useful.

If you have to make it retry and do not give up, you can enable the "Repeat track" option.

Is it possible to delete the current playing track through API without knowing its position in the playlist? I've tried with just 'delete' and no &pos= and I've also tried &pos=0 and &pos=-1 but these didn't work.

Yes, it's a bug in the underlying style library - developers are notified, and it should be fixed at some point in the future.

It's curently under development. I think within a month, or more, it will be published.

I need that the streaming that is sent to FM are not processed, but if for web page. I currently have two instances but a feature so it would be very nice

In RadioCaster, all encoders are fed from the same stream. You should use multiple instances in your situation.
