Post by: djsoft on October 28, 2017, 11:19:12 AM
The discussion continues in the new topic: https://www.djsoft.net/smf/index.php/topic,5593.0.html

RadioBOSS Cloud public alpha version is now available!

What's the point
RadioBOSS Cloud is a web-based radio automation system. Typically, web AutoDJ systems are limited in features, have ridiculous limitations and are only good as a backup solution. RadioBOSS Cloud is designed to change this by offering feature rich and easy to use web based radio automation solution. RadioBOSS Cloud offers everything that is needed to start an Internet radio station in minutes!

Benefits
Work in progress
RadioBOSS Cloud is still under development. We're open to any suggestions, feature requests, bug reports. We plan to release updates every 2-3 days, so a requested feature can appear almost instantly! There are already many new features that we plan on adding within the coming weeks.

good luck with this project my friend

i invested lot of money in fiber, servers, so right now i'm very happy with my "offline" solution.

but if you need feedback; anything, feel free to ask, i tryed hundred and hundread of automation softwares and radio boss is not only the best one, it's also the only one to fits to my needs ;-)

so maybe in feature request probably some video format (broadcast webtv could be very interesting) and also some scripts to show the upcoming tracks to the listeners (and not the previous tracks). probably i will broadcast a video with screen capture of software to let the listeners know the scheduled upcoming tracks !

cheers

In if I think it works very well!. I have a suspicion that works with the RadioBOSS's background engine.  ;D

Some ideas:
-The progress bar moves too slowly for short tracks like jingles.

-I would like that from the library you can drag tracks to the main window. There's plenty of room here!

-Amplification of type of files would be very useful for Jingles!

-To configure the Gap killer

-On the Media flap: It would be interesting to be able to preview, search among the files, and clarify that the bottom is a playlist editor. Was half confused at first

-Maybe in the future a new interface. Sure draws more customers! The Airtime graphics engine is excellent!
This very good that is always visible what is playing no matter what tab is this.
 It gives very good image, although in functions RadioBOSS cloud is truly much more powerful!.

The Stop button to listen to the transmission is actually paused.
If you are standing for several minutes, then there is a deface between the player and the audio you hear.

Thank you!

Is the plan in the future to be used as a remote control of RadioBOSS for Windows?
I don't think RadioBOSS will have remote control feature, it offers remote control API and I think it's as much as it's going to offer for a foreseeable future. If you have RadioBOSS on the server, then it's easier to use Windows Remote Desktop to manage it.

I have a suspicion that works with the RadioBOSS's background engine.
Indeed it is - RadioBOSS does all the heavy lifting there :)

The progress bar moves too slowly for short tracks like jingles.
Yes, it updates every some seconds, so a short jingle will see only 1-2 updates. Something will be done about it.

I would like that from the library you can drag tracks to the main window. There's plenty of room here!
Yes, the Overview has some free space, but how to drag-n-drop there, do you mean add files/folders/playlist lists there?

On the Media flap: It would be interesting to be able to preview, search among the files, and clarify that the bottom is a playlist editor. Was half confused at first
Agreed on that. We've seen other users complain about it too, the playlist editor is not obvious. Thanks for mentioning this. And search feature is a good idea too, will be added.

Airtime design seems a bit cluttered to me. RB Cloud supposed to have a cleaner UI. I agree that it should be a bit redesigned though, the current version is a prototype, and looks will be improved over time. As well as showing some information page-independent (e.gh extend top section to show currently playing track title).

It occurred to me that this was built from the API. That's why I thought I could then be used to create a remote control from the desktop version.

My idea is to have two panels: on one side the main list and the other, a media manager that allows you to add files to the playlist. In the same way as on RadioBOSS

But it has very good ideas that we can get out of here.

Something else: Is it possible to add a preview of the songs that were uploaded?

Post by: Rob Hayes on October 29, 2017, 05:05:11 PM
There's a couple of options I would love to see (for me to switch over from my vps and start using the cloud option).

* I'd need the Icecast server to include DSP Processing , so I could use StereoTool on the live stream and auto dj.
* I'd need the ability to create individual Icecast Mountpoints (for each dj) so they would use individual passwords.
* I have a very big Schedule, at the moment the Schedule page would get very confusing very quickly for me.  Airtime do a very good job at doing this, something like that would be brilliant.

Apart from that, very good work sir !

Theoretically, yes - but it's easier to use Windows Remote Desktop to manage your own RadioBOSS on Windows. Web UI does not add much value in this case. So I'm afraid Web UI for RadioBOSS is not going to happen. But RadioBOSS Cloud will offer more and more features over time :)

My idea is to have two panels: on one side the main list and the other, a media manager that allows you to add files to the playlist. In the same way as on RadioBOSS
The initial idea was to focus on unattended operation, without manual playlist modification. But ability to quickly add tracks to the playlist would be a nice addition.

But it has very good ideas that we can get out of here.

Looks good. Will be noted for the next UI update :)

Yes, it'll be in the reports section, currently under development.

I'd need the Icecast server to include DSP Processing , so I could use StereoTool on the live stream and auto dj.
Technically, StereoTool processes the stream before it reaches Icecast - Icecast just sends stream to the listeners, with no modifications.
I see two problems with using StereoTool in the Cloud:
1. Legal: I'm not sure if their licensing terms allow such usage.
2. Technical: as far as I'm aware, StereoTool does not offer any kind of remote control, without it it would be impossible to make any changes to its configuration from the web page.

I'd need the ability to create individual Icecast Mountpoints (for each dj) so they would use individual passwords.
That's what we have planned. Currently we consider implementing it another way: one mount point for DJs, but the mount point has multiple access credentials, so each DJ will have their own login/password.

I have a very big Schedule, at the moment the Schedule page would get very confusing very quickly for me.  Airtime do a very good job at doing this, something like that would be brilliant.
Scheduler window occupies almost full screen size in RB Cloud. We can offer some options to group and filter events in the future. How many events do you usually have in the list?

Apart from that, very good work sir !
Thank you!

Stereo Tool has a Web control through which all settings can be made.

1. Legal: I'm not sure if their licensing terms allow such usage.
I don't think there's any problem if the user inserts his license, from the Web interface this is possible.

I disagree. The API is much more fluid.
I remember in an opportunity that was in the middle of the farm with a connection to Internet 2G very bad, which hardly opened Google with much difficulty. The API worked great in an application that I developed in Delphi. With that connection there was been impossible to use Remote Desktop or TeamViewer

Stereo Tool has a Web control through which all settings can be made.
Here's the warning I see in the StereoTool help about it: http://help.stereotool.com/7.40/web_interface.shtml
Quote
Important: At this moment the web interface is NOT protected against unauthorized use. Anyone can get in and change settings. So DO NOT USE THIS on a system with an open internet connection.
Of course we can proxy it and add a layer of authorization. Another thing: StereoTool is resource (CPU) intensive. It will be considered in the future.

With that connection there was been impossible to use Remote Desktop or TeamViewer
I agree there are some cases when this could be useful, but this is a pretty rare case, and with Internet connection becoming more stable and faster every year, it's simply do not worth the effort of developing fully featured web UI...

Post by: nelson c on October 30, 2017, 11:57:06 AM
StereoTool is resource (CPU) intensive. It will be considered in the future.
Undoubtedly the big problem here, although perhaps some users are willing to pay a higher plan for this feature!
I know that StereoTool has temporary licenses, for example, one month in duration.
Maybe it would be a question to get in touch with the StereoTool developer and thus provide a complete package !.
For example, hire the RadioBOSS Cloud service for one year with a license of stereotool for the same term. And a higher price than the package without processing because hardware is needed to support it.


For now, having the compressor and internal equalizer of RadioBOSS could be interesting!

That what I was thinking about too, maybe acquire some sort of server-wide license, but that's going to happen once RadioBOSS Cloud itself is ready - and that could take some time :)

Yes, those will be added in one of the nearest updates.

I think they added more commands in RadioBOSS to build this. Isn't it? (As for example to view the log)
If so, it would be good to be documented in RB 5.7 so that all users of the program can use these commands :)

Most of the new commands will be documented, some (those that are too specific to RadioBOSS Cloud implementation) will stay undocumented.

They could check the settings used for music, they are interfering in the others, for example: the Fade in used in songs is being used in Jingle or vignette, even leaving Jingle unmarked.

That's what is odd, we can't reproduce here in neither of the major browsers...

Important note about those settings. Fade in, mix and fade out - if you don't have the checkbox set for those in file type settings, then it will use the setting from the music.

For instance, you have Mix set to 3 seconds for the "music" and it's checked. Then if you set Mix to zero in one of the file types, but do not check "Mix" - then the file type will have a mix setting of 3 seconds. The UI will be modified to make this more obvious.

On your screenshot, you don't have any special settings for the "Vinhetas" file type, so it's mixed according to the default settings.

If you don't need it to fade in and fade out, check both "Fade in" and "Fade out" checkboxes for the "Vinhetas" file type and set values to "0". This will turn off the fades. Then check the "Mix" checkbox and set its value to "0.5" seconds. Click Save and that should be it.

Also make sure that file type setup is correct - if it still does not work, please send a screenshot of file type settings.

I checked your account, and the problem is that you assigned one folder to two different file types: "Vinhetas" and "Commercials". This way the file types will not work correctly. I suggest you to unassign the folder from the commercial file type (click the "Remove" button, then save settings).

Title: Re: RadioBOSS Cloud [alpha] Better Playlist Rotation
Post by: Terry on November 18, 2017, 04:24:02 PM
Upon the completion of a playing track, it should be deleted from the Playlist and a new track added to the bottom of the Playlist. This is more logical and less confusing about what upcoming track hasn't been played yet. The ability to move un-played tracks up and down would also be a nice feature. Having a large library, I would like to see a SEARCH for tracks feature and a dark theme for the interface as light grey on a bright white background is difficult to see and very stressful on the eyes. Also, connection to a shoutcast server would be welcome. I know the program will have many updates before it's first major release, So far, it looks very good and will continue to do so. Good luck with this project!

Upon the completion of a playing track, it should be deleted from the Playlist and a new track added to the bottom of the Playlist.
RadioBOSS Cloud works in a different way - it loops through the playlist items, that's how the rotation is played. Please see the Quick Start guide to see how the rotation is built - https://www.radioboss.fm/radioboss-cloud-quick-start-guide/

In a typical rotation, there are no regular tracks in the playlist as such. Instead, there are special items called "Track List" that select tracks from the folder according to the rules.

The ability to move un-played tracks up and down would also be a nice feature.
Yes, I think we'll make it possible to edit the playlist window contents, e.g move, delete, add tracks.

I would like to see a SEARCH for tracks feature
Do you mean search in the Media section, to search tracks in folders?

dark theme for the interface as light grey on a bright white background is difficult to see and very stressful on the eyes
Good idea - dark theme will be added once UI layout becomes more or less stable.

Also, connection to a shoutcast server would be welcome.
It will be possible to send stream to user supplied external Shoutcast server. There are technical, legal and general reasons why we decided not to offer Shoutcast within the service - that's why streaming to external Shoutcast server only.

Thank you very much for the suggestions!

The VPN server makes your IP address constant so the session works correctly - we'll make some adjustments in the next update (0.1.5) so you don't have to use the VPN to work with RB Cloud.

Those are "draft" track selections. The final track selection is made only for the following track, and subsequent tracks will be re-evaluated when they are about to play. In your case, different tracks will be selected - it won't play "Marilyn Horne" four times in a row :)
We've made some UI adjustments to make this behavior more obvious - it won't show draft selections, instead, it will show source folders from where it's going to select a track.

Yes, I was aware that as the up-coming track rotated, I would net get four "Marilyn Horne" but a new track in it's place. I just thought it was odd behavior. I have the alpha running 24 hours a day and will let you know of anything else I notice as odd.

I’ve noticed the update to the playlist that has been made. I can’t decide if it’s an improvement or not. Some people might object to not having the upcoming tracks not showing. Some duplicate tracks are still showing. If you have a chance to look at my stream you can see the duplicate tracks.

It has occurred to me that I might be over taxing the “Arias, Choruses, Duets” Playlist. I need to keep it going/ rotating until the next scheduled “Opera” Playlist starts at a specified time. Any scheduled tracks would be deleted before the “Opera”Playlist starts. I thing. I’ve set this up properly. Please let me know if there is a better way to accomplish this? Thanks, Terry

This is definitely odd - but an attempt was made to improve things a bit...

I’ve noticed the update to the playlist that has been made. I can’t decide if it’s an improvement or not. Some people might object to not having the upcoming tracks not showing.
The track names it showed previously were not correct anyway, so it's not a bug loss :)

If you have a chance to look at my stream you can see the duplicate tracks.
At the time of checking, there were no duplicate tracks in the playlist, however, theoretically, there could be if e.g. it selected the next track and then the same Track List is used in other parts of the playlist.
I think that we should note somewhere that only the next track is valid while other track selections may be re-evaluated.

Post by: djsoft on November 22, 2017, 10:53:17 AM
I thing. I’ve set this up properly. Please let me know if there is a better way to accomplish this?
The setup is correct. When the next event starts, it will delete tracks inserted by previous scheduled event, while keeping the core playlist (Arias, Choruses, Duets) in the playlist window. I suppose that's what you want it to do.

You can optimize it by combining the four playlists (12, 3, 6, 9 hour) into one, that starts at 12 PM and repeats every 3 hours (180 minutes) - activate the "Repeat every" option.

Thanks for the correction of the login, I do not have to use VPN now, I hope the integration of the TuneIn Radio API.
You're welcome. The TuneIn integration will be added in one of the following updates, within a week or two I think.

I noticed the very nice work you did with the playlist, giving it a better appearance. I also noticed the REPEAT function on the scheduling menu but though it was for Station ID and Jingles. It never occurred to me to use it. Thanks so much for your suggestion and I will be using the REPEAT feature. Perhaps on a future release, we could have a played track panel to the right side of the playlist panel. There is certainly lots of room for it.

Yes, there's plenty of room to the right, and we plan to add tab control there with the following options:
- File list (similar to the one in Media section) - to quickly add track to the playlist
- Upcoming scheduled events to show what events are going to start soon

Nice idea about recently played tracks - will be added too :)

We're trying to make RadioBOSS Cloud as easy to use as possible. The Quick Start guide explains how to make it select and play music - this should be a good starting point, as after that you'll have stream up and running.

Please share your experience (and questions) with the service. We'll use it to make it better.

Yes, we've seen this bug here too, but it's occasional and happens pretty rare, so it's pretty hard to find the cause - it should be fixed at some point in the future :) Meanwhile, try pressing Ctrl+F5 to force reload all application files, the problem is likely to go away.

This is the correct behavior. It either repeats the playlist, or plays it in shuffle mode - otherwise, after the show (playlist) ends, there will be silence on air.

RadioBOSS Cloud operates on its own server, it does not rely on your Internet connection. You only need to connect to it from time to time to change programming, add music etc.

If you broadcast live from your computer and your Internet connection fails - it will fall back to its own playback.

We may be adding Dropbox support in the future, but I'm not sure yet. We need to make sure it's going to be safe (server security is the most important concern, as security breach in Dropbox may affect the whole server). And also make sure that such usage doesn't violate dropbox terms of use.
It could be that we'll offer some other solution to quickly upload news and other frequently changes items.

2. Also is there a playlist gen for the song playlist
Currently it only offers the Track List feature, that offers a simple way to build playlists: https://www.radioboss.fm/radioboss-cloud-quick-start-guide/

And is there away to take my current settings and upload on the new cloud RB
I don't think it'll be possible. RadioBOSS Cloud uses its own file path system and set of configuration options - there's no other system from where you can import that.

The "Log" section purpose is to overview how it works, to see if there are any errors, that events start when they are supposed to etc.
The reporting you request will be added as a separate feature in the future (early 2018 I think) - it'll offer CSV and PDF reports for given periods of time including the selected fields.

This was considered, but I'm not sure if it adds any value - when you use it from PC or Mac or even mobile phone, the clock is already provided by the OS and it's always visible (unless your web browser is full screen).

but i have 100+ mega upload for 18€/month with my internet provider, and i stream in 320k. cloud based solitions are very expensives, and uses 320k like a very luxuous thing.

so because of that, the lifetime discount is very attractive, but i still hope it will not be more expensive to use cloud based than my offline solution (maybe 35 or 40 € for 100m is still reasonnable taxes included)

i will write you 378 pages of features requests, i warn you.

so i start my webradio, and your start your new service at the same time. hope for us a long love story ^^

edit : ability to broadcast in mono could be great to save bandwith
(in mp3 160k mono is much more clear than 160k stereo)

hello , should be very great supper idea with this ,
for the moment im using Centovacast .
so my question is :
do you have to use also shoutcast and icecast? like centovacast ? who is managing this servers?
do you have to link it together shoutcast and icecast?

edit : ability to broadcast in mono could be great to save bandwith
(in mp3 160k mono is much more clear than 160k stereo)
Mono is useful when broadcasting at low bitrates like 32kbps or less. It's practically useless at bitrates larger than 128 kbps, especially when AAC is used. The stereo/mono switch will be added in one of the future updates.

cloud based solitions are very expensives, and uses 320k like a very luxuous thing.
Depends on how many listeners you have. We charge for the amount of data transferred - in this case, comparing the same amount of listeners, 320kbps stream will be about 2.5 times more expensive than 128 kbps stream.

i will write you 378 pages of features requests, i warn you.
That's perfectly fine here - we're open to suggestions :)

Currently we only offer Icecast server. Shoutcast is harder to manage as the service is controlled by Radionomy, public listing requires registration on Radionomy web site.

Shoutcast will be supported as a secondary server type. At first, we'll offer relaying option: enter your own Shoutcast server details and RadioBOSS Cloud will send the stream to it. Then it'll offer internal Shoutcast server instance, while still having Icecast as main server.

I can't find a way to remove something from the playlist in the Overview. It was some songs on the scheduler that I took off, but it won't remove them from the playlist. I restarted the player, restarted the server, I even deleted those songs from File Manager and Playlists, but it keeps them on the playlist in Overview and continues to keep trying to play them (and getting errors). Help! How do I get them off?

quick suggestions (i will provide more feedback later) some are inspired from software version of hugo boss manager

- different crossfade settings according to show / time of the day (for some shows jingle / track / jingle / track is better than crossfade mixed music)
- choosing beetwin icecast / shoucast v1 / shoutcast v2 (my website is optimised for shoucast v1 to display tracks in homepage)
- custom display stream name with multiple lines : 100 lines of 100 characters, and set rotate to 5, 10, 15, 30, 45 or 60 seconds (for announces, advertises, etc)*
- embed custom informations on strem name (time, listeners, dj, show, ...)
- allow custom comment for track and display it through stream name (exemple : music rated five stars)
- getting the 60 upcoming trackname (or next 4 hours) with prevision of time, and a script to share theses information on website
- ablility to upload tracks directly from filezilla
- choosing custom url name and/or hide the radio public page (if stream is not free to listen, per example)

probably most of theses request aren't essentials, but i'm the maniac guy who cares about little details ^^

*i already sell text space and stream name seems the only place to show text message on webradio (dab stations have sofisticated interfaces where they can put lot of various informations. yeah, i'm jealous !). showing it on my website is actualy the only way i can do but it's not very relevant. you can check this link : hsl.ecwid.com/FunText-600-Signs-5-000-Views-p96816298

ps bonus request : making an app for "android auto" with all the radios you host for pionneer, parrot and other caraudio retailers (+ "android tv" for lg, xbox and others partners who can increase our audience). it's easy to create an iphone/android app, but very hard to get published on caraudio or tv, even if it's where it's relevant to listen radio today. but together we are stronger and you can negociate for us if you host enough quality radios on your solution, like radioking does ;-)

__________


edit : i have a folder with acapela jingles i insert on music.  offline i created scheduled tasks to play theses jingles. one great thing would be the ability to schedule acapela jingles without interupting music, and, if possible, decreasing the volume (if wanted, as an option) when it's played. it can save me hundred hours of work and improve programs quality.

This is already possible using the File Types feature. You can set custom crossfade settings for jingles, adverts etc.

choosing beetwin icecast / shoucast v1 / shoutcast v2 (my website is optimised for shoucast v1 to display tracks in homepage)
Shoutcast doesn't offer features we need for RadioBOSS Cloud to operate. It also requires Radionomy registration and we don't like that requirement for our service.

custom display stream name with multiple lines : 100 lines of 100 characters, and set rotate to 5, 10, 15, 30, 45 or 60 seconds (for announces, advertises, etc)*- embed custom informations on strem name (time, listeners, dj, show, ...)
- allow custom comment for track and display it through stream name (exemple : music rated five stars)
This will be added in one of the future updates, it'll allow to set custom title format.

- getting the 60 upcoming trackname (or next 4 hours) with prevision of time, and a script to share theses information on website
If the rotation is based on Track List (as suggested in the Quick Start guide) then it's not possible, as Track List evaluates the next track only.

- ablility to upload tracks directly from filezilla
We'd like to avoid FTP option for now as it causes lots of support requests (based on our experience with Centovacast). Do you experience any problems with uploading using web UI?

choosing custom url name and/or hide the radio public page (if stream is not free to listen, per example)
Do you mean Icecast page or auto-generated page that RB Cloud offers? If the latter, you can effectively turn that off if you remove page contents from settings.

RadioBOSS does not send titles to TuneIn using TuneIn API currently (but that's planned for the future updates). In your case, it appears that TuneIn reads track title from the streaming server.

You can schedule an event to play the song at the set time - use the Scheduler section to do it.

Ever since the update, I have not been able to upload any music. Even trying just one file at a time, it errors out. I have reset the server, and rebooted my computer. Same thing. Everything errors out. Internet speed is fine/normal.
We'll check what could be wrong there. Please note that there's no need to reboot the PC when something's wrong with RadioBOSS Cloud - it's enough to close the tab in the browser and reopen it. Or simply press Ctrl+F5 to force reload the app.

HELP! I can't upload files
You can hover the number of failed files text ("1") to see the reason why upload failed. (but in this case it appears to be a software bug in the app).

Yes, currently the "Recently played tracks" widget does not respect the "Do not send title" option - will be fixed in one of the next updates.

Yes, RadioBOSS Cloud will provide a link for the currently playing track album artwork. You can then embed it on your web site.

There are simple listener number reports available, but fully featured report generator, like in RadioBOSS, is planned for later versions.

And use my own stream to broadcast on [/quote]It will be able to send the stream to a custom server in the next update - at least, it's planned :).

We'd like to avoid that for security and performance purposes. It'll also make plans more expensive as business usage is paid for. Currently the preferred (and only) way to manage audio assets is to use the Media section in the control panel.

    This could be used within the system to utilize the RadioBOSS FM Streams currently being provide
RadioBOSS Cloud will offer user defined encoders to send stream to other servers - it's planned for the next update.

2.) Ability to have a Random Change of the song on the Clock Rotation Playlist
3.) Same ability to insert a song into the Clock Rotation of the Playlist
5.) Clock Rotation List for the entire hour when using the auto Clock format
There are no "clocks" as such in RB Cloud. It allows to create rotations and schedule them when needed. A rotation will play indefinitely, selecting new tracks every time, until a new rotation or another scheduled event interrupts it. You can find more info about rotations here: https://www.radioboss.fm/radioboss-cloud-quick-start-guide/

4.) Email notification to the Adminstrator (Or whomever) if the is problem with either the Stream or Server
We'll add such a feature in the future. Currently it simply restarts player or server in case it freezes/crashes.

6.) On the Scheduling the ability to program for up to 90 days in advance
It's already possible, scheduled events are not limited in time/dates. You can set events to run with repeats, e.g. "Repeat every 60 minutes" for TOTH events. Events without repeats (and specific date set) will run every day at the same time.

7.) Commerical SPot integration much like RadioBOSS uses for the Cloud Service
Can you please give more information on what it should do?

Post by: Elysa on January 25, 2018, 01:45:22 AM
My station on TuneIn will not play on Amazon Echo, although it does play on the TuneIn App and on TuneIn streaming webpage, as well as in SecondLife. After several days of going around between Amazon Echo and TuneIn support, TuneIn support just sent me this:

"After doing some further research, it appears the issue is with the stream being formatted as a secure “https” stream. While many media players https streams, it is less compatible than standard http formatted streams. We can let Amazon know of the issue to possibly resolve in a future update. But in the meantime, we suggest that you provide us an alternate stream that isn’t in secure https format."

There are three TuneIn links on the Integration page, but the only one that's not https is the m3u one that doesn't play directly but wants to open a program. The direct stream, which is what I have sent to TuneIn, is this:  https://c2.radioboss.fm:18070/stream

This is a bug in Icecast - sometimes the switch does not happen. We'll change the way transition works in one of the next updates, and the problem will be gone.

features like DJ management, shows sorted by color, record live shows and upload immediately to Soundcloud / Mixcloud
Most of those features are planned for the future updates, and will be gradually implemented once all the essential features are there and working reliably.

schedule repeats
Repeats are already possible, you can repeat events every set period of minutes, daily, weekly etc.

i have a special request for you.

i have some financial issues at the moment.

i would like to know if it's possible to stop the service for few months without loosing the database i created on your servers.

lot of radios have financial issues and can't broadcast everytime like me.

or i can decide to open a christmas station, and only broadcast one month per year keeping the database for the following year.

keep up the good work and have a great day !

There will be "stream archive" feature to record stream on schedule. On demand audio is not supported, but we'll consider it for the future.

Uploads in the background and navigate on the platform while uploading.
This is a good idea - noted for the future. Currently you can open two tabs in the browser, do uploads in one and work in another.

I'm sorry, but that's not possible.

Hello,

thanks for adding the replaygain support. I'm wondering how this is being calculated. When I move the slider The overall gain level changes, but there are still some volume differences from file to file. So I'm assuming the replaygain doesn't add album-based gain information to all files like e.g. in Airtime?

I've noticed that the "now playing" and "recent tracks" widgets are not working in all browsers. At least IE11 is broken and shows "undefined" instead of song titles.
Is it allowed to adapt the widget code for e.g. CMS plugins? I'm working on a plugin for the Yellow Markdown CMS.

BTW: My traffic counter is not being reset upon new accounting period. I can open a ticket if this needs further investigation, but this is currently far from urgent.

The "Playback level" slider is not connected to the Replay Gain feature - it just sets how the final output level is corrected. In most cases, it should be left at "0 dB".

thanks for adding the replaygain support. I'm wondering how this is being calculated
RadioBOSS Cloud does not calculate it - it uses the ReplayGain tag (the "Track ReplayGain" field, to be specific) if it presents in the track's tag. If not, it plays the track as it is.
You can scan tracks (before uploading) using the Foobar2000 software, please see this post for more information: https://www.djsoft.net/smf/index.php/topic,4036.0.html

I've noticed that the "now playing" and "recent tracks" widgets are not working in all browsers. At least IE11 is broken and shows "undefined" instead of song titles.
Yes, it appears that IE does not support some of the modern JavaScript features widgets use. I won't promise that widgets will be fixed to support the outdated browser. IE is in the "End of life" status officially, so its usage will (if not already) drop to almost nothing soon.

Is it allowed to adapt the widget code for e.g. CMS plugins? I'm working on a plugin for the Yellow Markdown CMS.
Yes, you can do anything you like with the widgets code, there are no limitations.

BTW: My traffic counter is not being reset upon new accounting period. I can open a ticket if this needs further investigation, but this is currently far from urgent.
It's reset on 1st day of every month.

Currently that's not supported. I'm not sure if Facebook is suitable for such frequent updates.

It will be added in later updates, once essential features (streaming related) are in ready state.

Soon there will be "no more than N times" option for the event repeat feature. It will allow you to schedule an event that starts at 11pm, repeats every hour with repeat count set to "22" - it will make event run every hour from 11pm to 7pm.

I am very excited about the RadioBoss Cloud. I like it very much. A feature that I would wish would be that for programs that you have uploaded as one or more files for the title information could deposit a CUE.

I also hope that it will soon be possible to stream to other Icecast servers. Since I already own one.

You can setup a simple relay connection to rebroadcast your RB cloud stream If you have access to your icecast configuration file. This is how I'm doing it for now until a more flexible solution is provided. The relay however works fairly stable, even live broadcasts are forwarded to the other server.

It's a real option to use but currently with some limitations - it will broadcast autodj only (what RadioBOSS Cloud itself plays) but not your live stream (what you broadcast to /live mount point).

One other item - anyway to move files from one Cloud Station to another different cloud station with in the RadioBOSS cloud system?  in other words duplicate the same files on another station internally.
Currently this is not possible, and I don't think it'll ever be possible due to potential problems it can cause (for instance, you cancel one stream but files from that streaming account were used for another stream). All accounts are isolated and independent from each other and I think it should better stay that way.

Hello,

I'd like to have an option which allows uploading of custom m3u playlists with hand-picked tracks. This is usefull to e.g. create special music show playlists with a fixed flow. Assuming RadioBoss Cloud uses relative paths to create playlists, this should work as far as a local copy of the media library exists using the same subfolder structure. Building static playlists currently is a little uncomfortable, therefore I'd prefer creating them offline.

  • Encoder configurartion: separate fields for server address, port, mount point/sid
  • Added repeat number limit to scheduled events
  • Scheduled events time should show in user locale format instead of US English format
  • Fixed: Twitter integration sometimes failed when custom text was used
  • Fixed: TuneIn integration sometimes did not work
  • Fixed: data transfer counter was not reset for some accounts

So on the repeat number limits to scheduled events
If I set to 0.00am and repeat 18 times it should stop and not carry on after
Say 6pm

But carry back on at 0.00 am the next day is this correct

It depends on the repeat period. If event is repeated every 30 minutes, starting at 0.00am, the last repeat for this day will be at 8.30am. The following day it will again start repeating at 0.00am, ending at 8.30am and so on.
The next version will perform this calculation and show it in the event window to make things easier.

I'm just trying out the new event repeat options. Currently I have a daily rotation between 6  am and 7 pm. Each hour starts with an time announcement opener, followed by a general playlist. So I put every opener between 6 am and 7 pm in a folder and tell the event to select a tracklist of these files in order, repeating every 60 minutes and no more than 14 times. In theory this should allow the event to restart the folder with the 14 files in it every day with the 6 am opener.

I'm wondering now what happens if I temporarily disable the event for special programming, e.g. between 10 am and 7 pm, and re-enable it for the next day. Will the scheduler restart the tracklist from the first file or does it play the next file from where it has stopped? If the latter is the case, is there a way to reset the tracklist without manually rotating it on the air?

Yes, this is normal - AutoDJ continues to work always (unless explicitly stopped using the Stop button), so that when you disconnect from /live mount point, it'll immediately switch to AutoDJ. It also ensures that all events are launched in proper order.

In the future the encoder could be stopped with "Play and Stop" buttons, it would be essential.
Can you please provide more information?

A few things:

1) Can we get VT capability - or at least the ability to set a certain folder for overlay and overlay settings? I want, for example, to be able to drop a bunch of liners in a folder and have those rotate inside generated playlists and over intro...which would require some edits to be made to each song's waveform. This goes hand-in-hand with a request to let us set crossfades for each individual file...This would be FANTASTIC! If this exists, some help with this would be great.

2) I want to be able to use my Izotope Ozone 3 processing like I currently have on the software. Any ideas if this is coming?

If these have already been discussed and answered on previous posts, please let me know so I can review.

From its description, I suppose it will require RadioBOSS Cloud to export its schedule so it will know when to start and stop recording?

In the future, Auto Intro feature will be available. Similar to what desktop RadioBOSS has: http://manual.djsoft.net/radioboss/en/auto-intro.htm

which would require some edits to be made to each song's waveform. This goes hand-in-hand with a request to let us set crossfades for each individual file
Currently there are no plans on adding manual crossfades, as we'd like to focus on automatic crossfading. However, setting certain points like Intro will be possible in the future (at least it's planned).

2) I want to be able to use my Izotope Ozone 3 processing like I currently have on the software. Any ideas if this is coming?
I'm not sure. There are several technical and legal problems with adding such things. Technical - Ozone requires significant amount of processing power. And another question is how to configure it from the web. I'm also not sure if it's legally possible to install it on a server and offer it to clients...

https://c3.radioboss.fm/ is currently unavailable.
Server software was updated and not everything went smooth. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Not good...it's one of my favorite things about RadioBoss to be honest. This may require me to stay with the software or consider other cloud-based platforms - since cloud-based seems to be the way to go now-a-days. Crossfades are different for every track and minimizes gaps between programming. As someone who has worked in terrestrial radio for over 18 years, I find this to be a MUST in whatever automation software I use. I STRONGLY suggest that you guys reconsider this! Do this, you may have me until the end of time.

I found this tool, basically with Accio we can schedule stream recordings, unfortunately only works on Radiojar and Airtime Pro. Could you write to the developer to activate this tool on RadioBoss?

It's probably, but this works with live shows, maybe only is necessary link the server and mountpoint on Accio to start recording.

The links are already available - please see the Information tab in the control panel. If you want to only record when you stream live (to /live mount point) then change the link to end with /live (instead of the main /stream).

I'm afraid this is not possible cuz I need a station id. e.g. stationid.airtime.pro / stationid.radiojar.com

Would be great if developer accepts RadioBoss servers. Can you ask him if it's possible?

RadioBoss manual crossfades have been working as close to perfect as possible - to the point that it's unnoticeable. Implementing the same coding as you have on the software itself on the cloud would be as good as I could ask for. This is my personal opinion, and I know it's not easy - but a close-to-perfect manual crossfade option on the cloud is better than none.

BTW the way I've remedied the crossfading issues on RadioBoss software is to set the mark just before I actually want it to transition (I've noticed a very, VERY slight delay from mark point to transition in the software). It's an excellent work-around and my transitions have never left me with a headache while monitoring. Anyway, if you could look into manual crossfading on the cloud, it would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

I think you may contact them and ask support. The streaming protocol RadioBOSS Cloud uses is a standard Icecast streaming, so technically there shouldn't be any problems with recording it.

RadioBoss manual crossfades have been working as close to perfect as possible
Currently we have significant amounts of issues reported by users about Segue Editor - that's one of the reasons why it's still in beta state in RadioBOSS. Once we improve (or completely overhaul) it - I think it'll also be added to Cloud.

This topic is about RadioBOSS Cloud - it does not connect to Centova.

Hello,

the following may sound a little to complicated, but I hope that I can clearly explain my intentions. :)

Could the tracklist feature be extended to select content also from playlists and not just from folders? An advantage of such a feature would be that you can schedule special music programming and avoid wasting space because of duplicate files in multiple folders.

As an example: I have a general music folder for my main rotation containing around 3000 tracks. From this folder I would like to create a set of playlists, e.g. a saturday night party playlist with all tracks in it that are suitable for this particular show. No jingles, no other elements, just the songs. This playlist now is a kind of virtual tracklist from which I would like to randomly select a track, and build a usual rotation playlist from it.

Live Stream ----->   Passes Through the RadioBOSS CLOUD --------------> direct to Icecast or Shoutcast to the rest of the listening public instead of the Cloud Feed. UPON Live Feed FAILURE The RadioBossCloud take over automatically.

Currently it will continue sending track titles to TuneIn and Twitter when live broadcasting is active. We'll add a configuration option to disable it (so that you can send those updates from your broadcasting software). There's also a bug when sometimes it sends incorrect titles to TuneIn when relay is active - it will be fixed in one of the next updates.

I have an error in the notification of listeners, I have the radioboss 5.1.0.7 and before I marked the listeners in real time but now it does not pass one even if I have 3 listeners look at the test.
This is because live streaming is handled as relay, so it will only show one listener always - this "listener" is actually the software that relays the stream to real listeners. In order to retrieve proper listener numbers, please configure statistic relay in RadioBOSS: http://manual.djsoft.net/radioboss/en/statistic-relays.htm - select server type Icecast, enter server address, port and password from Information tab in RadioBOSS Cloud and specify mount point: /stream

It sends all the titles, it doesn't filter them out by duration. Does it only happen when you broadcast live, or it happens with AutoDJ too?

Only if I send live. This does not occur with the AutoDJ. At first I thought about it, that it could be because the track is made of silence, but it does not seem to lie to it either.

I use mAirList. Title I send to the server. As soon as the file is 3 seconds long, the info will also be sent, but not at 1 second. Problem is that I have some neutral programs in my program where the advertising trigger with a second is firmly scheduled and on that I have no influence. Therefore it would be good if he would also be sent at 1 second as a title info.

If you broadcast in mp3, the title may not be received by relay processing in RadioBOSS Cloud for technical reasons: the metadata for mp3 is sent every 8192 bytes of stream data, and if your track is shorter than that, the live relay in RB Cloud may miss this title update completely. Can you please try broadcasting (to /live) in another format e.g. OGG or AAC? There's a chance it will fix the problem.

If you can access my account and check, because this only happens when you have a playlist scheduled before this schedule, so I find complex understanding, just seeing how the schedule is to understand. I have a 7:58 am schedule, and this problem only happens only after 7:58 am. When I put the playlist manually the problem does not happen.

i would like to know if it's possible to stop the service for few months without loosing the database i created on your servers.
I'm sorry, but that's not possible.


actually you "suspended" the service but the radio was still playing. can you check it and stop/erase it if necessary please ? Username: stream_7582

i just bought the original radioboss software so i'm aware that you're convainced cloud based radiomation have a potential but i think offline solution are more flexible and powerful for now. plus i invested in expensive server so it's very pointless for me to paying a rent for bandwidth hosted in a cloud (was curious anyway cause i always love your work)

you're still the best, glad i found dj soft or my project were never able to exist. it's the only one sofware with the features i need, easy enough to use and affordable price. i'm really surprised you're the only one capable to that, cause i tryed hundread solutions over this few lasts years.

They, RadioBOSS and RadioBOSS Cloud can (and I'd even say - should) be used together. You can use Cloud as a streaming server, and its AutoDJ features as a backup solution, in case your main broadcast goes down.

Could you add audio in the future? If what is paid, it would be unfeasible to use a processor like the Stereo Tool, but JB Broadcast is free and an audio-radio transmission.

I would like to be able to cast directly on the shoutcast too, because there are several shoutcast features that do not exist on icecast, I believe there are many others who would like to see this possibility on the RadioBOSS Cloud, is it possible?

The problem here is if JB Broadcast allows remote control - to allow setting its parameters from Web UI. Audio processing options will be included, JB Broadcast, or something else.

You can broadcast to Shoutcast servers, it's configured in Settings->Streaming->Additional encoders. Click Add, then add Shoutcast connection.

Stream recorder will be available soon?
It is planned, but currently I can't tell when it is going to be added - it can take a month or two.

In the future updates it will be possible to edit playlist items, including URLs.

In addition, it would be convenient if the length of the audio file behind a URL is automatically detected, without you always have to specify manually.
If URL points to a specific file (not a stream), then you should specify its duration as "0" in RadioBOSS Cloud, this way it will detect the length automatically and play that file till the end.

When deleting items, it would be a little more safe and convenient to include the item's name into the alert message, e.g. "do you want to delete folder xyz". Fortunately I didn't delete anything wrong, but because I'm a screen-reader user I sometimes have to double-check my selection before performing such actions.

At the risk of sounding annoying, will you program custom track mix points into RBCloud? I see you added trigger mix level and, while that’s great, it’s not what I want. So, I’m asking because I love your service...and I appreciate your work with this, but I have to move on if this is not in the plans for future updates. If you’ve already addressed this in a previous posting (that isn’t mine), I would appreciate a reply with quote so I can reference that part of the thread. This and audio processing are my only problems with RBCloud thus far (though I haven’t actively evaluated the entirety of this service since I haven’t actually “used” it). Your response is appreciate and I’m hoping for good news.

It will be possible soon to add tracks directly in the Overview tab, the file list will be on the right. We currently work on this feature.

We currently consider adding an "Import from Dropbox" feature, it will download files from Dropbox folder into a RadioBOSS Cloud folder.

Google Drive too please
I think that would be possible too, same way as with Dropbox - select a folder in Media, then download files from Google Drive to that folder.

Can it be made possible to consider live broadcasts in event scheduling? An event option similar to "wait for current track to finish", but also for live broadcasts. This would make transition between live and automated content even better, for example if a live show is a little longer than expected.

  • Live broadcast: ability to wait for current track to finish

I just tested this feature and messed up the beginning of my live broadcast. :) As it seems I don't have to start the show exactly at the top of the hour but a few seconds earlier, otherwise the automation will play the backup content until the waiting time is over and then fades into the live stream input.
Does this feature also work the other way around when turning off the live stream? That's what I actually was thinking of when asking for this. I have disabled this option for now.

If you started live stream while track is being played, it will wait when the track ends (or when wait time is over). So you should start live broadcast earlier.

Does this feature also work the other way around when turning off the live stream?
It won't work, at least I don't see any way for it to work :) If you disconnect the stream, it has no choice but to start the backup (autodj) stream. If you continue streaming, it doesn't know when you are going to disconnect, therefore it again does not have any choice but to play live stream.

Couldn't there be an option in the event scheduler that tells the event to wait for a currently running live input to finish?
As an example: After my live show an automated show is scheduled at the top of the hour. My last song in the show however doesn't always finish at the exact time, so the only way to make a accurate transition is to fade out the song somewhere in the middle. If the event scheduler could observe the live input for a certain waiting time before starting the event, we could have more smoother stream transitions without breaking the one or the other show.

But if this is technically not possible, I'll of course deal with it. :)

RadioBoss Cloud beta suggestions:

1. The RadioBoss.fm website should make clear which streaming plan you're signing up for under "View Plans." 
I almost clicked on "Buy Now" and signed up for "Centova" by mistake under "Stream Hosting Plans" (instead of "RadioBoss Cloud").
     
www.radioboss.fm/plans


2. Add ability to pay lump sum for 6 or 12 months at a time (in advance).


3. In the "Control Panel" under "Information" these two passwords should be hidden with asterisks:
     
/Live Streaming Connection  /Password
/Server  /Admin Password

(This happens with the RadioBOOS software as well, but since on PC you have the possibility to use an audio processor, the songs are all level in 0db).

I understood this function, but I noticed that when the audio happens to have levels below "14db" the next audio is being mixed and the previous one continues playing, leaving the two audios together, eg if after mixing it is missing 1 minute to the end of the previous audio the two continue for 1 minute playing together in the air.

I like to organize my music using the format "song title - artist."

All of my MP3 music files are stored in the format: SONG TITLE - ARTIST.mp3

In RadioBoss Cloud under:
/Settings  /Streaming 

the "Stream title format" is set to:
%title - %artist

RadioBoss Cloud displays the songs in the format "SONG TITLE - ARTIST" in the following areas:

/Overview  /Now Playing
/Overview  /Recent Tracks
/Media  /File Manager
/Media  /Playlist
/Stream Page  /Now Playing
/Stream Page  /Recently Played Tracks

However, RadioBoss Cloud displays the songs in the format "ARTIST - SONG TITLE" in these areas:

/Overview  /Last Track
/Overview  /Coming Up Next
/Overview  /Playlist
/Logs

If I set my "Stream title format" preference to:

%title - %artist 

shouldn't all my songs be displayed in the format "SONG TITLE - ARTIST" in ALL areas of RadioBoss Cloud?

Not quite. Stream title format only sets the title format that is sent to the streaming server - this is what users see. The same title is also used in recent tracks and some other areas.
The display title for internal means is different, and currently it's fixed at "%artist - %title". We'll add an option to control this in the future updates.

Is there a difference between the bitrate of the song and the bitrate setting that exists on the panel? Ex: I send a mp3 music 320kbps to the server, and I choose in the panel the transmission in 320 kbps also, this music goes through some kind of understanding before reaching the listener player?
Title: Re: RadioBOSS Cloud [alpha]

The output stream and the bitrate setting represents a mixdown of the tracks or live input being played back through RadioBoss Cloud, regardless of the actual input file format. All files are played back internally before sending them to your audience. This allows files of different/mixed formats in your track library, e.g. mp3 along with OGG Vorbis, Flac, AAC and so on, even different bitrates and sampling rates should be no problem. So it is regardless which audio files you upload as long as RadioBoss is able to play them.

But my question is whether there is an understanding that reflects on the final quality? To be clearer, the listener listens with the same quality of the file that is on the server at 320 kbps, or if there is more compression, loss ...

Technically the files are being transcoded and therefore will loose quality, but as long as the input and output bitrates are high enough the listener won't hear any difference. The lower the bitrate of both input and output, the more you will hear a quality loss, e.g. 128/128. But 320 shouldn't produce any audible quality loss in most cases. Input files with lower bitrates also shouldn't get worse than they are.

Yes, this also applies for live input. You however can use the direct stream link to the /live mountpoint on your RadioBoss Cloud Icecast instance to hear an untouched version of your live input.

Post by: djsoft on July 08, 2018, 03:09:38 PM
Is there a difference between the bitrate of the song and the bitrate setting that exists on the panel? Ex: I send a mp3 music 320kbps to the server, and I choose in the panel the transmission in 320 kbps also, this music goes through some kind of understanding before reaching the listener player?
Regardless of track format and bitrate, everything is converted to the target stream format as specified in settings. Even if all your tracks are MP3 320kbps, and you broadcast in MP3 320kbps, it will still decode and then encode it. This will not produce any noticeable degradation of quality.

I just noticed that Steffen Schultz already provided all the answers :)

I am having a problem with some files, they are normalized and processed in 0 db, on my computer when squeeze they remain 0 db, when I upload it to the RadioBOSS Cloud it plays with a level far below 0 db, I wanted it to check if the problem is my file or if it is a problem with the RadioBOSS Cloud, they are not all, just a few. I'll leave the folder path and music here, if you can check, thank you.

Sending a file in the attachment of this post as an example, this file has the peaks at 0db, but on the server it is below 0db, not all, but it happens with some. Example: I have all the songs playing at 0db, so a song appears with the sound below (all my sounds are processed before they are sent to the server). I am sending this file to analyze if the problem is in it or in the RadioBoss Cloud.

At least in this case I think the problem is the file itself. According to replaygain tags, the file has a track gain of -13.9DB, and RB Cloud recognizes this. Furthermore the file starts with a crack, which may cause track peak calculation to turn the rest of the file to low.

Steffen, what's a crack? Could you give any hints on how to solve this? Why on my computer does it spike at 0db and the server is at -13db? Other doubts is that, it's not just this file, it happens to some others too, and I did tests with servers from other local companies and this did not happen, kept the level in all files ...

There is a noise at the very beginning of the file which sounds like a short crackle. The noise is not very loud, but it could cause replaygain calculation to fail.
The maximum peak is at 0DB, thats correct. However, in the ID3 tag information there is a field called "REPLAYGAIN_TRACK_GAIN", causing players that support replaygain to play the file at the specified gain level - and this is set to -13.9DB in this case.

To solve this, you could use software like MP3Tag (https://www.mp3tag.de/en/download.html) and remove/modify any unwanted replaygain ID3 tag information.

"REPLAYGAIN_TRACK_GAIN"
Steffen, I realized that disabling the "Enable ReplayGain" function in the RadioBOSS Cloud panel solves the problem, will it affect other audios? This function could have an alert information for users that you do not know, do you?

A few more RadioBoss Cloud beta suggestions:


1. In menu:

/Overview  /Playlist

Administrators should be able to delete multiple tracks by clicking the CTRL key or Shift key (instead of deleting one track at a time.)


2. In menu:

/Media  /Playlist
and 
/Media  /Playlist  /Tracks

There are  two "Delete" buttons right next to each other. It's not clear which button is "Delete Playlist" and which is "Delete Track."

When deleting songs from playlists I have sometimes deleted the entire playlist by mistake.


3. In menu:

/Settings  /Station Info  /Default album cover (for tracks with no artwork)

Is .PNG the only available format?  If so, .JPG should be added as well.


4. The Quick Start guide is helpful for setting up a new account.

However, a wizard would be better for beginners (e.g., "What is the name of your station," "What is your bitrate," etc.)


Keep up the great work guys!   :)

Steffen gave a good explanation already, so I don't have much to add :) It could be that when you play it on your computer, the player ignores the ReplayGain tag and the file plays as is. RadioBOSS Cloud by default uses the ReplayGain information to level the tracks. To solve the problem you should either:
1. Disable ReplayGain in RadioBOSS Cloud: Settings->Audio->Enable Replay Gain - turn off.
2. (Preferred way) Scan your tracks to make sure they have proper ReplayGain tag. This way all your music will play at the same level. Please see this guide (the part about ReplayGain): https://www.djsoft.net/smf/index.php/topic,4036.0.html - or you can use any other software to perform the scanning.
Title: Re: RadioBOSS Cloud [alpha]
Post by: SertanejaPop on July 19, 2018, 04:13:21 PM

Tip, have a close alert to the "ReplayGain" setting on RadioBOSS, preventing users without this knowledge from having songs at different levels, even though all files are standardized. :)

Thank you for pointing out this issue, we'll do something about it to make things more clear - I think the delete buttons will be moved directly to the lists, instead of keeping them under the lists.

Currently, yes, only PNG images can be uploaded. In the future JPGs will also be supported.

However, a wizard would be better for beginners (e.g., "What is the name of your station," "What is your bitrate," etc.)
Thank you for the suggestion, perhaps by version 1.0 it will have a sort of first-time use wizard.

It very rarely causes the problems - in your case it appears that the file was not properly scanned, and had incorrect ReplayGain tag. We'll add this case to the Troubleshooting section in the user manual.

It's a feature of Playlist Generator, and currently it's not available in RadioBOSS Cloud. However, the Related Artists feature should be added at some point in the future.

Some experts recommend using a subdomain to list your station on Internet radio directories.

For example:

http://listen.mystation.com

Instead of:

http://c1.radioboss.fm:1234/stream

Is the use of subdomains fully supported on RadioBoss Cloud?

Thanks in advance
Title: Re: RadioBOSS Cloud [alpha]
Post by: djsoft on August 17, 2018, 05:18:33 AM
It does not matter how the address looks. If it works, then it's OK. But it's still a good idea to make your address look more pretty.

If you have your own domain (e.g. example.com), you can create a subdomain for your stream that will point to RadioBOSS Cloud domain, a CNAME record will look like:
Code: [Select]
listen.example.com CNAME c1.radioboss.fm (the exact setup depends on your domain management control panel)

Then you'll be able to listen to your radio using the following link http://listen.example.com:1234/stream (other links from the Information page will work too, just change the c1.radioboss.fm part to your own subdomain).

Another way is to create a subdomain, and make it redirect to the actual stream address, that is, accessing
http://listen.example.com will internally redirect to http://c1.radioboss.fm:1234/stream

The actual way to redirect depends on what server software you use. In Apache, it's pretty easy using .htaccess file, something like (not tested)
Code: [Select]
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://c1.radioboss.fm:1234/stream [L]
Title: Re: RadioBOSS Cloud [alpha]
Post by: John Drake on August 17, 2018, 11:18:26 AM
Thanks for your reply. I followed these steps:

Register a domain:
----------------------
mydomain.com

At the domain registrar create a subdomain:
------------------------------------------------
listen.mydomain.com

At the domain registrar forward the subdomain:
----------------------------------------------------
listen.mydomain.com
- forwards to:
http://c1.radioboss.fm:1234/stream

The "friendly" name "listen.mydomain.com" seems to work on the Internet radio apps I tested. I was wondering if this worked on all Internet radio apps or could there be compatibility issues with some players?

I have encountered some minor difficulties when sending the files to the RadioBOSS Cloud server, eg when I send a file that already exists in the server folder, only after it is sent I get an error message, which I imagine to be why this file already exists in the RadioBOSS Cloud folder. My suggestion is: that this message appears before the files are sent, avoiding sending them again, saving time, like the FileZilla that does so ... Would this be possible in the future?

It should work everywhere, there's of course a minor chance that some software does not support redirects, but I think this is an extremely rare case.

Yes, this is currently how it works, we'll think of some way to check the upload queue before upload is made, but this is not a priority at the time. We also plan on adding FTP support which may be more convenient in soma cases compared to web UI.

Hello

I have a question.  I have 2 Radioboss Cloud services.  I wanted to publish the 2 streams on the same page.

So I copy paste the codes on the two streams for the noe playing and recent tracks to appear on my page for the two streams.

It works fine when I place the code for one stream, however when I place code for the two streams (in a table, each one in its cell), the infos gets confused, like if it is using the same variable.  Song name goes from one stream to another.

Is there a way to use more than one code on the same page so I could create a super page with all the streams info  ?

Greetings

We'll make it possible to use multiple widgets on the same page - this is scheduled for future updates. If you need it urgent, the possible workaround would be to place each widget inside an iframe tag (however, I'm not sure if it will work).

Hi all,

We're currently using LiveWebDJ for our station but are considering switching to RadioBoss Cloud, I just have a couple of questions first.

Currently, we broadcast news bulletins on the hour. The file name is always just news.mp3 and updated automatically every hour, and we broadcast it by supplying LiveWebDJ the URL to the bulletin file in my Dropbox. Would RadioBoss Cloud allow this to be done either the same or in a similar way, and if so how would this be set up in the scheduler?

Also, when myself or one of the other DJs goes live, LiveWebDJ automatically records the broadcast so we can easily replay it at a later time or download it. Does RadioBoss Cloud do this, and if not is this a planned feature?

Thanks in advance for any help,

Callum.

Yes, when creating a scheduled event, select the "Network stream" option and enter the news file URL - it will play the file that the link points to. The link to the file has to be direct - e.g not the one that opens a web page where some user interaction is required.

Also, when myself or one of the other DJs goes live, LiveWebDJ automatically records the broadcast so we can easily replay it at a later time or download it. Does RadioBoss Cloud do this, and if not is this a planned feature?
The stream recording feature is planned for the future updates - currently it does not do recording.
