Can you make something similar to Radio.co to automate live broadcasts?

https://radio.co/product-tour/broadcast-live

Create an event > Select a dj > Record automatically and add an option to rebroadcast the show or an option to upload directly to mixcloud/soundcloud account.

I think something like that will be possible in the future. We will offer stream recording soon, and recorded files can be played on air.

Hello

I already love this service.

Two things I would like to add.
- Possibility to download files we uploaded in Media
- Possibility to insert a teaser

Thank you! :)

- Possibility to download files we uploaded in Media
Can you please provide an example use case when downloading a file would be useful?

- Possibility to insert a teaser
This will be possible soon, planned for one of the October updates.

Hello.

The main reason I would like to download files is because I bought .mp3 files, then uploaded them to my media on radioboss Cloud.

I forgot to keep a backup copy locally of my .mp3 (I know this is my fault).

So this is why.

Also, I saw that shoutcast support is coming, do you know when we will be able to take shoutcast streams.  My players work best with shoutcast than icecast.

Greetings

Thank you for usage example. We'll consider adding this feature in the future.

The feature is currently being tested, so it should be available soon, I think within a month.

RadioBOSS Cloud 0.4.7 beta

What's new
Title: Re: RadioBOSS Cloud [beta]
Post by: clanet on September 17, 2018, 01:05:12 PM
Hello, I congratulate you for this great project.
I leave my contribution: I would like the transition from autodj to a live broadcast to be clean. I can not find a way to do it.

When I start broadcasting from RadioBOSS, I would like the autodj to fade out what is currently playing. Then there should be a pause of all the programmed events EXCEPT for those events that have the option OP (Overlay playback).

When the transmission ends from RadioBOSS, the autoDJ should automatically reorder the events and return transparently from the beginning the first track available, and all scheduled events continue as they were. Except those who should have been suspended for the live broadcast.

Currently, when I start broadcasting, I must manually stop the playlist and try to make the transition from live to autodj. It is not easy to do it and it looks good. I also see that if I do not stop the playlist, it continues.

I leave my contribution and again congratulate them for this great project.

Thank you very much, friends!

Hello, First off I’ve been using RadioBoss since 2009…I tell everyone starting a new station that this is the BEST automation software out there! So thank you for such a great product!

We recently made the switch from running RadioBoss on the local side, to the NEW cloud – very impressed! I realize this is new and developing for everyone who utilizes the cloud, but I also have found a few of the really important elements that are currently in RadioBoss, which are not offered in the cloud. Could you provide an update on whether these services can be offered?

•   More File Types: Our station currently identify 20 different file types in RadioBoss which trigger special events (crossfades, programs, promos, jingles, etc.) so only having a few in the cloud becomes cumbersome on our listener experience right now.
•   Track Segue Editor/Placing Cue Points (Intro’s/Outro’s)
•   Hook Points for Teasers
•   Option to Treat a File Type as a Voice Track
•   The ability to upload files into our RadioBoss Cloud directly (FTP or something for shows which are downloaded from the providers and uploaded for our station)

Thanks again for the great software! We really look forward to what updates lie ahead for the Cloud! ;D

Hello

Thank you for your answer for Shoutcast support.  If I add more icecast stream now, will I be able to convert them to Shoutcast when available?

Or, can I help you test them?

You don't need to stop the stream, there's even no need to open the control panel at all to broadcast live. When you connect to the server, it will automatically mute the AutoDJ and play the live stream. When you disconnect, it will return to AutoDJ. This is performed with fades, so the transition is smooth and fully automatic.

When the transmission ends from RadioBOSS, the autoDJ should automatically reorder the events and return transparently from the beginning the first track available
When live stream is connected, the events and playlist in AutoDJ continues to run as it was. But it's all muted, so the listeners only hear the live stream. This is by design, and is made to ensure that when the live transmission ends, AutoDJ will continue playing what it's supposed to be playing at the moment.

But the topic you've brought is interesting, and there is a field for improvement. I think we can pause the AutoDJ when live stream is active, so music tracks won't play (and won't be added to repeat protection list).

Yes, currently it only offers a subset of features that the main RadioBOSS has, but gradually it'll have more and more features. File types (any number), teasers and FTP is what we have planned for the near future, most of those features will be available before the end of the year. The Segue Editor will take longer, given that it has many flaws in RadioBOSS itself so it has to be fixed there first.

The Shoutcast support will be an additional feature and all accounts will have it once it's ready. The Icecast will still remain as the main server software (there are legal and technical reasons for it). So you can safely order as many accounts as you wish :)

Also how do I upgrade my current cloud to include more encoders or GBs?

Hi,

I'm using Safari on MacOS and it doesn't seem to be possible to save any changes made to the settings. When the save button is clicked, it just comes up with "loading" next to the save button but nothing actually happens. I left it for around 10 minutes just to make sure, but came back to exactly the same screen.

I tried making the same changes in Chrome and that worked fine and saved the settings straight away, so just seems to be an issue with Safari. Other functions, such as creating folders, seem to work fine in both browsers, but everything is working as expected in Chrome so I'm just using that for now to be on the safe side. :)

I'm using a screen reader and that doesn't seem to be picking up any error messages once I click save in Safari, so as far as I' aware there aren't any, but it's possible that the screen reader just isn't reading them.
Title: Re: RadioBOSS Cloud [beta]
Post by: Callum on September 20, 2018, 05:33:24 AM
Could someone explain to me how exactly the file type settings work?

So far, I have created a "jingles" folder, and under the jingles section of the file types I have set it to that folder, and checked the "Do not send broadcast title" option. Does this mean that for all files in the jingles folder, it will not send the metadata for those tracks? Does it also include subfolders of the jingles folder? Do the files have to be named or tagged a certain way for this to work properly?

Thanks :)

This will not be possible for security reasons, as uploaded VST plugins are essentially a software so it can do anything on the server. We may be offering pre-installed plugins in the future, but currently I can't say for sure when/if that is going to happen. A simple sound processing (compressor/equalizer) will be added in the near future.

Also how do I upgrade my current cloud to include more encoders or GBs?
You can write to support@radioboss.fm to request the change. Later it will be possible to change the streaming plan from the control panel.

It works for the jingles folder itself and all files in this folder or any other subfolder. The file names do not matter.

I have my news broadcast set to play every hour, however on a weekend I have a couple of shows where I ideally don't want the news to play. Is there a way to basically say "play this event every 60 minutes apart from 8PM-11PM” for example?

Thanks :)

A feature that recognizes and automatically deletes duplicate uploaded tracks would be great. Because I have accidentally uploaded some tracks with me several times and thus lost some of the overview.

Yes, this is possible - set the event start time to 8PM, enable the "Repeat every" feature, set 60 minutes period and limit it to 4 repeats.

Apologies again as I feel like I'm being a bit thick here, but I'm struggling to understand the different insert type options in the scheduler even after reading the guide a couple of times. In what cases should the different options be used for?
It depends on what you want to achieve.
"Replace playlist" will clear the playlist window completely and load the event, this is typically used when you switch playlists e.g. between morning/day/evening so that you're sure there's no unwanted tracks left in the playlist. "Queue after playing track" will simply insert the event after the currently playing track. Can be used for station IDs, for instance.
"Replace scheduled tracks" will remove other scheduled tracks from the playlist but will leave regular tracks. Useful if you want to interrupt some scheduled show and play something else.
"Queue after scheduled tracks" will queue events one after another - you can have multiple TOTH events that are scheduled like 1 second apart, :00 starts the TOTH jingle, the :01 event starts the news, and using this option you can queue those one after another.

A feature that recognizes and automatically deletes duplicate uploaded tracks would be great. Because I have accidentally uploaded some tracks with me several times and thus lost some of the overview.
Checking for duplicates based on file name is not reliable (there can be multiple tracks with names like "Track01.mp3") and may give lots of false positives. While checking if the actual audio content is reliable but is too resource consuming, so technically this is not a good thing to add.

With the latest bunch of tracks I uploaded, I can see there are two errors. How can I see what exactly those errors were and on what files? I noticed recently that a few of my tracks had incorrect tags, so I took most of my library down, fixed them and then added them again, could that have something to do with it?

You can see the details (name of the file and error message text) if you hover the errors number in the upload window.

You can edit the tags directly in RadioBOSS Cloud, in the Media, click the Tag Editor button in the file list - it edits the tag for the currently selected track in the file list.

Hello.

I know I already asked about this in the old thread.  But, I would like to use the code you provide in the integration section.  However, only one code is working if I use all of them in the same page.  (I currently have 2 streams with Radioboss cloud.).

In the past you told me to use Frames and that should work.  My problem is I have a wordpress site so it does not support frames.

What can be done so I can have for example the recently played list of two Radioboss Cloud streams on the same page in Wordpress?

Greetings

Hi,
We love RadioBoss Cloud. We actually use direct as our playlist software for 2 terrestrial radio's (both Fm's) in Nashville TN.
Everything works fine, (actually great!) however, the only BIG problem is reporting. It would be great if there is a possibility to export a csv file with someway somehow the songs/commercials/jingles listed with airtime and date. If an export is possible we can use this to invoice our clients, send reports to copyright institutions etc. This is a MUSt for legal radio. Online or on air...

It very well could be as Windows may have not yet been updated with new time zones. Meanwhile you can set a different time zone that has the offset you need.

The problem is solved. The error was mine, I had as time zone only "UTC" indicate. The correct one is "URC + 1". I just did not really care about it. Since I currently use only one event, I never really noticed the whole thing.

Hey. Just wanted to tell you that RadioBOSS Cloud has been an absolute dream to run. Did our first live stream test. Very smooth transitions on and off the live.

File uploading question: we are about to implement a program that will have the same file names every day. Is there a way to overwrite those files while uploading without getting an error message?

Thank you very much for the kind words!

Currently it will skip the files that already exist. In the next update we'll add an option to control this (overwrite or skip).

The upload dialog only appears when upload is already in process - it will not be convenient to modify it from there. I'd like to add that it will support FTP uploads soon, and you can have more convenient upload UI and features.

It's not that it does not allow switching between devices. It currently logs you out when you close browser window - so when next time you open it, it will require logging in. We'll add an option to keep the login when the browser is closed, thank you for pointing out this issue.

  • FTP server for file uploads
  • Persistent login to control panel: does not log out when browser is closed

The FTP feature works, however the server prints an error for filenames containing an apostrophe. You have to rename them before uploading.

Appart from that I'm no longer able to login into the RadioBoss Cloud panel after using FTP. Or has this something to do with the persistent login feature?

And also suggest a time-appropriate feature for the system where you can set the unique custom time for each station.

While beta the UI will be English only so that development is not hold off to updating the translations - the UI changes a lot while beta because new features are added or changed. Once it reaches release state, we'll support multiple languages, Portuguese included.

And also suggest a time-appropriate feature for the system where you can set the unique custom time for each station.
You can select the time zone in the settings if I understood the request correctly.

It is possible - you need to add a CNAME record to your domain and point it to the RB Cloud server where your account is located, e.g. when you edit DNS zones for your domain, add
stream CNAME c2.radioboss.fm

Then you can use
http://stream.yourdomain.com/stream/75 instead of http://c2.radioboss.fm/stream/75

This will also work for all the links in the Information panel.

I did this using a PHP code but it does not show the metadata.
PHP approach should also work. The file should be like this:
Code: [Select]
<?php
header
('Location: http://c2.radioboss.fm/stream/75');

Better way to redirect would be to simply use the .htaccess file (if you use Apache server), as you would be to use a link not ending with .php.

Hello -

Couple questions which we find rather important:

1 - Will the cloud version allow us to create "mix points" (on a song or station promo) the same way the standalone version currently does?

2 - Do we know how much longer before we can add more file types beside the standard 3? Our stand alone version of RB had about 25 file types so as much as we have loved the new cloud version, we have limited a lot of file type functionallity we had with the original software.

Our biggest issue right now are with our station promo's and jingles. Certain jingles may have a "dry" ending which requires a quicker cross fade, while other jingles are "wet" and have a longer reverb which we would like the song intro to layover on a longer mix point. We are very restricted at this time on crating that type of segway.

Thanks in advance!
Title: Re: RadioBOSS Cloud [beta]
Post by: WKOM on December 03, 2018, 12:59:19 AM
Hi,
I had the same issue, but there is a simple work around.
Go to "settings" ->Crossfades-> and create at least 2 different crossfades: 1 for wet and 1 for dry.
For example: Use "general" for wet "settings" and "advert" for dry recordings.

Forget the whole: General, advert, etc.

Now go to Media -> File manager and create 4 different folders: 1 -for General (all wet)
2 - one for dry (for example dry recordings) 3 - etc 4 -  etc

From now on, you make sub folders based on the crossfade.

We use a subfolder with wet Spots, which has another subfolder with other requirements under "general" folder.

Use a different subfolder under Spots folder with for example the sub folder title --> Adverts - Dry Spots.

When you now create your playlists or scheduled content, you can choose if you want a spot from the "dry" tree folder or "wet" tree folder...

Key in workarounds with RadioBoss Cloud is using the Scheduled options and Playlists.

It's all very simple, just think out of the box.
Sorry for the complex description and explanation but it really works. We are running 3terrestial stations completely on RadioBoss Cloud. Almost without issues..

Likely, yes, but in a relatively distant future, once all core features are completed.

2 - Do we know how much longer before we can add more file types beside the standard 3? Our stand alone version of RB had about 25 file types so as much as we have loved the new cloud version, we have limited a lot of file type functionallity we had with the original software.

2 Questions:

1 - How does the repeat protection currently work? I'm finding several issues where the same song keeps airing within the same hour. What about a "featuring" issue if there are several artists on a song?

2 - Will there be an option to skip the same file type tracks like the stand alone version? (In the event a schedule changes and had just played a sweeper and a new sweeper is the first part of the next new set)

Thanks!

Currently multiple artists for a track are not supported. If there's only single artist, it will not be repeated according to repeat protection rules. Please note that rules only work when you use Track List, they do not work if you add tracks directly to the playlist.

2 - Will there be an option to skip the same file type tracks like the stand alone version? (In the event a schedule changes and had just played a sweeper and a new sweeper is the first part of the next new set)
Yes, this option will be added soon.

In the past it logged off when you logged in from another computer or when you closed the browser or when IP address changed. It was fixed about a month ago and now it does not log off in such cases.

Using the "Request desktop site" on mobile phone will log you off for security purposes - because technically, the "user agent" string is changed and it looks like a session hijack attack. We'll find a solution for this case in one of the next updates, one that keeps the security level and also does not log off when you change settings in your browser.

Here is a feature that I would like to see added: the ability to specify which days/times in checkbox format a scheduled event can run.

Currently is requires that tracks are scanned before uploading, it can't perform the scan itself.

I am using the RadioBOSS Cloud as a week now, and I could say this project will go far far away.
I found a few glitches in the system but I'm sure will be corrected soon. 

First when I'am connecting with RadioBoss from my computer not all the time AutoDJ is fading down and leave the external source to play. I tested at least 10 times and my conclusion is it is a glitch in system.

Second, same connection the actual playing artist and song title is not showing on the radio web page just only after song was played.

Third, for example yesterday night I got a lot of interruptions, lost the connection many times.

Anyway generally speaking this errors can be corrected, and in my opinion it is a working option not just to myself but for so others who want make they own radio stations true RadioBOSS Cloud.

I still missing one thing, the showing songs clip arts in stream, for example when I'm playing the station in Winamp, Foobar or AIMP.

Thx guys, great job, the external DJ connection option hope will be active soon.

It continues playing AutoDJ as if no external source is connected?

Second, same connection the actual playing artist and song title is not showing on the radio web page just only after song was played.
The song is added to "recently played" tracks list only after it's played (and the actual update may take additional 10 seconds).

Third, for example yesterday night I got a lot of interruptions, lost the connection many times.
This is unlikely as the server has lots of bandwidth and it's premium bandwidth. It could be some temporary issue though, or a problem with your internet connection.

I still missing one thing, the showing songs clip arts in stream, for example when I'm playing the station in Winamp, Foobar or AIMP.
This is only supported by Shoutcast v2 and still does not work in all cases. RadioBOSS Cloud uses Icecast server and it does not support in-stream album covers, I'm sorry.

Currently some of my files appear to be not existing in the cloud UI. If I open a folder, the files in it are being listed, but without duration. The folder statistic only counts number of files, but shows 0.00 MB as total size. The files are actually there, I can work with them using FTP, put them in playlists and even the tag editor seems to work. Also my overall disk usage appears to be lower than the actual file usage.
Oh, and the traffic counter bug from earlier versions is back again.
I can open a ticket if you need more information and this isn't a general problem.

It appears to be a bug. Can you please provide more information on what files have the information missing - did you upload those files via FTP or using a Web UI?

I first was assuming this only appears for files uploaded via FTP, but this also happens for older files uploaded trhough the UI. As it seems nearly every folder is now somewhat broken. Example:

"Tracks: 2530 Duration: 06:58:58 Size: 17.2 GB"

The duration should be much longer for so many files.
If I select one of the broken files and open/close the tag editor, these files are displayed correctly afterwards. Could the "update tracks library" under general settings solve the problem? I once pushed this button but wasn't sure if the browser window should stay open when updating the files.

Oh, and the traffic counter bug from earlier versions is back again.
Can you please specify what bug is it? If it shows zero listeners when there are listeners connected, please switch to "Icecast KH" server in the settings, this should fix it.

No, its the data transfer counter bug from earlier versions, last month it always stated an usage of 0 GB for my account. I don't have many listeners, but at least a few GB should appear there. Currently it is at 1 GB, I'll observe this further.

It appears to be a bug. It only affects tracks display and does not affect playback or track selection features. I have added it to the list of bugs. The library update from the control panel will not solve it. I will make it internally rebuild the music library for your account, it should be complete within 4 hours (the reindex task is low priority when server resources are managed).

last month it always stated an usage of 0 GB for my account
There was a technical issue in December where it did not calculate data transfer for all accounts up to about December, 11. It was fixed. I have checked the general server stats and the data transfer is calculated correctly for all accounts. Please note that it counts only finished listener sessions - the data transfer is only added to the total count when a listener disconnects.

Can the repeat track feature be folder based, rather than every folder in the track list group? We have folders broken by recent hits (which we tend to want on repeat every couple hours) and other folders which are throwbacks (which we wouldn't want to repeat for a few days)....right now those songs are repeating too often.

Thanks!

An update was being installed on that day and it may have caused those errors. Even while you had seen those errors, the stream should be working (for most accounts, the average downtime was about one minute).

I love the possibility to generate reports for FCC here in the US and Copyright companies, but also as a proof when, and on what time a certain song/commercial has been played! Thank you!!

Issue: When I stopped the radio-player (playlist) with 4 minutes of silence, it didn't generated any email error report for us. We have not received an email or spam. The box was marked with "Send email notifications in case of any errors or silence"! If it doesn't generate a report by manual silence, it would be great to send a "test report" or have a "test functionality"! This function in combination with sending auto text messages when certain email are received in my email box will give me a lot of extra sleep. In this case I can receive a text alert when emails are send by error or silence. (See below links for instructions)
https://www.cnet.com/how-to/auto-forward-important-email-to-your-phone-as-a-text-message/
https://www.howtogeek.com/210956/how-to-configure-automatic-text-message-alerts-for-important-emails/

Couple of small things I believe would be great improvements:

1) The reports can not be generated if you use a large amount of data. For example: If we generate a monthly report, the server gives a time out error. (probably because it takes to long to load)

2) It would be great if the generated report is automatically saved with the station name and dates the report is generated for. If I want to generate 4 reports from 4 different days, all reports will be saved as "report". It would be great if it would be for example: "[Station Name] + [Date Reports Generated]" WKOM Radio report 2019-2-2_2019-2-8

3) Would it be possible to publish somewhere the headers of the reports used in CSV or export the reports with headers?

4) It would be Super if you can ad a custom field with info in -> Media -> File Manager -> Tracks ->Tag Editor which will be exported in the report as-well. Specially for notes in regards the tracks or spots being played.

5) Would it be possible in the future to make a selection WHAT the reports are exporting. It's a small thing to delete the info not needed, but it would save time and CPU if you could pre-select the info WHAT you like to export in a report.

6) Export functionality in ZIP?

For the rest: We LOVE the way RadioBoss Cloud works!! Impatiently we wait for future developments. We are running 4 RB Clouds for 3 FM stations and 1 AM Station in Metropolitan areas without any Flaws!!

Many THNX!!!

This is by design. It only detects silence when it supposed to be playing. For instance, an incorrect scheduled event may clear the playlist and do not load anything to play. In this case, it will detect the silence. But if you press the Stop button, the player is not expected to play anything, and the silence detector is paused too.

1) The reports can not be generated if you use a large amount of data. For example: If we generate a monthly report, the server gives a time out error. (probably because it takes to long to load)

Yes, we'll change the filename to include dates, thank you for the suggestion.

3) Would it be possible to publish somewhere the headers of the reports used in CSV or export the reports with headers?
What should be included in the header?

4) It would be Super if you can ad a custom field with info in -> Media -> File Manager -> Tracks ->Tag Editor which will be exported in the report as-well. Specially for notes in regards the tracks or spots being played.
This is something we have planned for the future.

The performance is not an issue here, mainly because we have plenty of processing power available, and number of fields really does not affect the speed anyway (1 field vs. 10 fields is only about 5% faster).

6) Export functionality in ZIP?
What is the purpose?

3) Would it be possible to publish somewhere the headers of the reports used in CSV or export the reports with headers?
What should be included in the header?

Answer:
For example "what" column name is exported. In my csv for example it exports several columns, most of them I can explain like date, album name etc. However my last column shows me a 2 or 3 (mainly 3) and I have no clue where this comes from or is related to. Also if the custom field can be exported (or an additional custom field can be created and exported, than you can add on additional information for BMI (who requires sometimes explanation why a certain file is a PSA and not to be billed in copyrights. This probably takes place in every US based regular commercial terrestrial station 5/6 x a day.) Also with a custom field in export, additional info can be used when uploading spots, bumpers etc in how long or till when certain spots, bumpers, can be played. Additional info like spot pricing. A simple comma separated field, which can be exported in 1 column, could be used for many reasons. from billing to reporting/logging to professional programs used in terrestrial radio. Software like marketron, sage (quickbooks) etc etc. Right now, if I export the csn file, I need to find all info (like music, bumpers, jingles etc. what i do NOT use. (a 24/7 station plays roughly 2-3 thousand songs a month + thousands of bumpers and jingles and FX etc. THAN I need to sort the Spots, THAN I need to change the headers exactly to HOW my billing software, or logging software like to see the CSV headers.
As you have seen my other questions, IF we could choose which headers could be exported AND manipulate the HEADER names to be exported. AND the exported file will include the headers, THAN there can be a 1 click automated process starting from Cloud Player Report Export to almost ALL professional billing and logging software in terrestrial radio world. With this functionality you have created a large gap in all available professional radio player-content placement software on the market.

I am managing all together 6 stations, all of them are using RadioBoss Cloud because of the easy of use AND cloud functionality. What you guys have developed is JUSt different enough than other cloud players and professional software suppliers to serve the largest small and mid terrestrial market in North America, who have all more or less the same problem. We would even pay for the development if it would be possible.

Answer: Processing! if the column headers could be manipulated in custom fields, than downloading the reports could be used 1-on-1 with for example google share a drive into auto billing, reporting, logging and avadavis software. Zip files can be uploaded automatically in the software named above. Also there are several firewall programs used by prof terrestrial stations and/or virus software which see csv downloads as dangerous and prevent them from downloading. Server operated email clients as-well. Zip files are not been stopped by them.

Depending on report type, those are average listener number and playcount. The column headers will be added, as seeing only the number is pretty odd. We'll also add filters (do not include certain file types in the report) and custom fields.

We'll check it again, currently timeout is set to two minutes, this should be enough to create any report. Perhaps there is a bug.

WKOM Answer: I didnt mean to be a "smart ass and give you guys more work, but if you want to use the email alert to be "realtime" and someone want to follow up directly, you NEED to have a email to text alert possibility.
Actually I answered seriously, the Test button will be added to test how email notifications work (it will send a test notification). RadioBOSS Cloud will currently not send text (sms) notificaions as they cost money and this requires building a new infrastructure to allow purchasing SMS credits and this is not what we want to spend dev resources on right now.

Could you add to the cheduler the ability to add the end time of an event instead of the number of repetitions?
Repeats allow to repeat an event. We may add expiration feature, similar to the one regular RadioBOSS has: https://manual.djsoft.net/radioboss/en/scheduler_options.htm

For everyone who is interested to receive text alerts after RadioBoss Cloud send a error email alert:

Most mobile phone providers offer the possibility to send email to text. When RadioBoss send an email with error alert, you can automatically forward this email to your cell phone nr.

For example in gmail: Create a filter, with a forward address to your cell phone "standard email to text address)

Could you add a VoiceTrack module like in your RadioBoss software that I can not use because I have a mac? : D
Yes, but in the future updates - voice tracking also requires setting Intro and Outro markers, and this is a pretty complex feature to add.

Yes but checking the tags instead of the file names. We are more to add music to the radio, there are duplicates;)

Hi,
We have to provide network information to some of our clients for firewall rules. Can you tell me the potential range your streaming servers operate in? I've assumed 8000-8100 but can you clarify for me. Thanks

The ports are auto-assigned, and can be within 8000-20000 range, but it's subject to change in the future.

Hi!

Not sure if this is the right place to post it, but I'd like make some feature requests:

- A Dark player suitable to a dark website theme.
- A widget to allow listeners to request the next song from the media library (like the one offered by Everestcast)
- Hability to vote songs (like/dislike) through a widget.

Thank you!

Yes, we'll offer a new player soon with some configuration options (colors, fonts etc).

- A widget to allow listeners to request the next song from the media library
This is planned for the future updates, but currently I can't tell when it will be ready.

A Playing Now widget could show the track Artist - Title, optionally the Cover Art, and two buttons below to vote positive or negative (could be a “Thumb Up” and a “Thumb Down”) , so we would know if a song is popular or not. That would mean adding a field in the library database to store votes.

Hello,

I have a problem with the planner ...

I asked him to play me the titles of a folder in order. The files are 121-british, 122-british ... 128-british. He started reading through the 127, 128, 121, 122, etc.
When playing in order, is it the alphabetical order, or the upload order on the server?

I would like to stream from RadioBoss Cloud at 192 Kbps MP3.
     
Should I rip my CD's to 192k MP3?
     
Or should I rip my CD's to FLAC?
     
If I stream at 192 Kbps MP3 will I get better sound quality using FLAC files instead of 192k MP3 files?
     
Thanks in advance...

You can export the report in .CSV format and then remove the columns you don't need.

It is so called natural sorting order. That is, when file names contain numbers, it will sort by those numbers. If there are no numbers, it will sort alphabetically. This is more complicated actually, but generally it works like this. It it the same sorting as in Windows Explorer when you sort files by file names.

While there would be no perceivable difference between mp3@192kbps and FLAC, I'd recommend ripping to FLAC as it's lossless compression so there's no quality degradation (even minor). If you want to store lots of tracks, however, MP3 may be a better choice as it's generally about four times smaller than FLAC.

Currently tweets are only sent when a track starts playing. You can put the first track in the event's playlist so that it will send the text you need.

Is it fair to say that MP3 files will be COMPRESSED TWICE, while FLAC files will only be COMPRESSED ONCE?
     
A FLAC file will only be compressed once while being streamed by RadioBoss Cloud:
FLAC > RadioBoss Cloud > 192 Kbps MP3 stream
     
On the other hand, an MP3 file is compressed once when converted from FLAC to MP3, then may be compressed again while being streamed at 192 Kbps:
FLAC > 192k MP3 file > RadioBoss Cloud > 192 Kbps MP3 stream
     
Is the 192k MP3 file COMPRESSED AGAIN or is it just PASSED THROUGH by RadioBoss Cloud?
     
Thanks again...

Yes, correct.

Is the 192k MP3 file COMPRESSED AGAIN or is it just PASSED THROUGH by RadioBoss Cloud?
The output is always compressed (encoded), RadioBOSS does not take into account what the source file format is. So if your source files are MP3 and you broadcast in MP3, there will be double mp3 compression involved. Usually it's not a problem, especially at high bitrates (at 192kbps it will take hundreds or even thousdands cycles to introduce noticeable sound artifacts).

But I do not want tweets to be posted to every title change. is it possible to automatically send a tweet for a particular title?
Currently, no, as we only offer "nowplaying" tweets that supposed to be sending updates on each track change. We'll think of adding custom tweets in the future updates.

Accounts are labelled 'stream503' 'stream803' etc which isn't very intuitive when you have a bunch of accounts on the same server address. The accounts I set up 2 months or more or so it was no issue to rename the account?

Also any idea when ' might be included in file name syntax? It is causing problems when trying to sort being local and remote ftp directories.

I don't think this would be possible, as it a potential source for conflicts. The overlay player is for minor things that do not require any features except for basic playback. I suggest running all shows from the main playlist.

Few questions:

1) How much longer before we have ability to add more file types? I know at one point it was mentioned to be ready around Christmas...

2) The ability of listening to a track within the "Media" category (It's nice to be able to preview a file to determine whether that file needs to be archived like a sweeper, or older song. Right now, we have to place in the player and allow it to play to determine what the file actually sounds like)

3) The ability to download a file directly from our media category to our computer. ( We have other stations now with separate RB clouds and some songs cross over. Like to grab the process songs from our current cloud)

Those features will be available in the future updates. RadioBOSS Cloud is a complex system, and in the past few updates we have significantly increased its reliability, and this is a lot of work. Once we see that it performs as it should, we'll continue adding new features.

3) The ability to download a file directly from our media category to our computer. ( We have other stations now with separate RB clouds and some songs cross over. Like to grab the process songs from our current cloud)
Currently you can download the files from FTP: https://www.radioboss.fm/radioboss-cloud/ftp-uploads/
We'll consider adding download option to Media section as well.

Good idea, yes - will be added in one of the future updates.

What is the difference between Icecast KH 10 and Icecast 2.4.4?
This may sound odd, but there is no compiled list of differences exists :) The KH version fixes some bugs fixed and changes what stream information it gives out. From our experience, in terms of uptime and overall reliability, the KH version is better and it's set as the default for all new accounts. There's no need to switch to regular Icecast unless you have a requirement to do so.

It's useful when you want to play something together with the currently playing song, optionally lowering its level. It's pretty much the same as in desktop RadioBOSS: https://manual.djsoft.net/radioboss/en/eventoptions2.htm

If it was playing previously, then it will continue from the position it left off. Even if it was in another playlist. When you add a new item, it will still check what the position for that folder was. It could be that when you have it played previously, it played the 07 file, and now it plays 08 as it's the next one in the queue.

If I had a news broadcast to play every so often, could "overlay playback" be used to play a bed over the news broadcast?
Unlikely, as it would be hard to synchronize the overlay event with the news event. The typical uses for the overlay feature are:
- play station ids when you play long DJ mixes and therefore playing ids between tracks is not really an option
- play top of the hour jingles if you don't want to interrupt the playing track
- run some important (and, typically, short) announcements, without interrupting the playing track

It's not possible, as it will require a way to specify when to continue, and when to start over. And, also, in this case, it will be missing the last file, if you start over earlier, before it played the last track from the folder.
If you know how many files there are, and it's constant, you should schedule it to play so that it plays all files from the folder, to make sure that it starts from the first file when needed.

Yes, but you'll need a software to do it - there's plenty software to perform FTP sync.

Title: Re: RadioBOSS Cloud [beta] - clear playlist upon new event
Post by: ubmchicago on May 30, 2019, 05:08:08 PM
Hey. Here's an idea for the next update:

As you create an event, have an option to have the playlist clear to allow the event run uninterrupted.

Just a thought.

You can use the "Replace playlist" option - it will clear the current playlist window contents and insert the event. So only event will be in the playlist.

Post by: WKOM on May 31, 2019, 03:47:33 PM
(Track List) is not included in the reports for files with no tags.
What does this mean?
If no TAG at all (NO Title, Artist, Album, Year, Start Date, Start Time, Length, AND Listeners) are found, it will not show up on export?
OR if just 1 one of the TAGS are not found, the entire song/spot or whatever is not exported?

Kinda confused..
All other upgrades are awesome specially the collapse and expand folders

THNX! Marty

Previously, if a track had no tag information, and was launched with Track List, the track appeared in the reports as "(Track List) filename". Now it will try tom parse the file name (to separate artist and title), and the (Track List) part is removed. Tracks with tag information are not affected.

Yes, It think this will be possible.

Hello - Is there a way we can use the “Do not send title to server” option in file types when using an FTP/URL link? Right now it only allows you to select a local file, but any FTP/URL link is being broadcast to the stream and we’d like the option to designate a location and select anything from that URL to not send the title  to the server.

Yes, it is planned. Not RadioLogger but it will record what's being broadcast and allow downloading it.

Can RadioBoss Cloud work with music scheduling software like MusicMaster or Powergold?
Currently no, as it does not allow uploading external playlists - there are technical and security reasons for such a limitation, as well as complicated setup, as to make it work you will have to somehow match the paths on your computer with paths on RB Cloud's server.

Re order the Scheduler so you can put it in a easy order

REGULAR FTP works great.
I'm trying to set up (like other people here) auto sync from folder on computer -> auto sync -> to Radioboss Cloud.
It gives us a 550 error, what turns out a server authentication issue.

Other solution would be "Folder Level" access by other people.
We have employees which are making commercials/spots, music, news etc. Now I have to give them ALL the general authorisation login password etc, with the possibility that they change or accidently change something in the playlist with issues in regards of our UPTIME on the terrestrial station

Auto sync FTP would cover that problem through automatically updating and syncing the folders from PC to radioBoss Cloud./ We can give locally rights to certain Folders, so NOT everyone has access to RadioBoss Cloud...
Please help...

In this case I'm not sure how it's possible. Auto sync is still a regular FTP and it works exactly the same, except that it automated uploading/downloading, but auth and everything else is no different. I suggest to limiting the number of concurrent connections (to 2-3), this is the only thing that I see to possibly cause problems.

We plan on adding such a feature - additional logins with limited access to features. But this is a pretty complex thing so will be available within 6-9 months.

Even if live source is stopped, most broadcasting software will reconnect automatically, so this will not be of much use. Still, you can kick sources if you open the server admin page (from Information tab).

There are some improvements planned, but it should show all connected listeners now. We'll check if something's not working right there.

Ok thanks for the update. The ability to move files between folders in FTP or indeed from the cp panel would also be much appreciated.
One thing I have noticed since the apostrophe 'fix' is that whilst the files referenced in the media library do have them displayed correctly the actual files when you see them via ftp still do not have the apostrophes. It is also impossible to rename the files (to add the apostrophe) in ftp due to permission issues. Is there a fix for this other than deleting those files and re-uploading them. Currently this obviously causes problems when file syncing.
Thanks

If files were uploaded in older version, when the apostrophe was removed, then the only way for it to re-appear is to upload those files again. We'll add rename feature for both Media section and FTP but this will be in the next release or release after that.

Hi,
Couple of days ago, in the middle of a broadcast with an interview with our governor, (we had been working on to get in our station for 2 years) RadioBoss stopped working, for as it turned out,an update/maintenance.
Horrible timing, in the middle of the day, all of our stations of the air....
It MUST be possible to give us a maintenance schedule or a week heads up instead of these nasty surprises...
We had sold $5K of extra advertising around this interview and lost $4200 of this...
Not happy, not cool, very very unprofessional to do this in the middle of the day...

Currently we only perform maintenance at night, at around 2AM server time: EDT for North American servers and CET for EU servers. It lasts up to 30 minutes.

I'm sorry this happened and from now on we'll issue a planned maintenance notices some days prior maintenance.

Another good news is that we improved the service so that maintenance that requires putting the server offline would be rare like 1 time a year or less.

Currently we only perform maintenance at night, at around 2AM server time: EDT for North American servers and CET for EU servers. It lasts up to 30 minutes.

I'm sorry this happened and from now on we'll issue a planned maintenance notices some days prior maintenance.

Would it be possible to implement an option for events to only play them at the scheduled time(s) if a specific other playlist is currently playing? Example: I'd like to schedule ad breaks as an event, but they should only be played if the rotation playlist is running, because I'm scheduling the ads for other playlists directly by putting the ads in the playlists.

This will be too complicated to configure properly. We already getting lots of support requests about using the scheduler, and such event startup conditions will make things even more difficult to use.

I think it will be possible in a different way: it will be possible to have multiple actions for events soon (same as in regular RadioBOSS) and you will be able to enable/disable certain event groups (e.g ads) when some event (e.g. rotation) starts.

It would be nice to have the time of the music in the area highlighted in print.

Title: Re: RadioBOSS Cloud [beta] - ability to change live streaming password

Quick question:

when changing the account password on Cloud, does that also change the password for live streaming?

No, the live streaming password is configured separately in Settings->Streaming.

What makes you think that Radio Boss Cloud stopped updates?
As far as I know they are still developing, but everything has a time and besides this they have to keep also other software programs in mind. Dont worry, just be patient!

I don't know why the stress, I like the boss cloud as much as you, I only asked one question, because they had updates every week and now it's really stopped, there are many suggestions and some things to improve yes. Stay calm, relax.

There are constant internal updates, the most recent was two days ago and several more before that. We don't announce such updates, as they do not bring new features, but they are utterly important as we fix various performance and speed issues, improve reliability.

We don't want to pump it with features and make it slow and unreliable. Quality over quantity.

It's also not possible to roll out updates every 5-7 days like in the first days, as user base had grown significantly so there's much more responsibility. Every update needs to be carefully tested, and updates that require server restart are being accumulated so that restarts are not too often.

Hello - What is the possibility of having background music play while streaming a network URL? We have daily weather upload via an FTP and would like to add our weather music bed as the background.

Thanks.

It is possible, similar to the file type bed in desktop RadioBOSS, this will be added in one of the future updates.
