Playlist Management and stopping stream
  • We have been testing Airtime with mutch pleasure
    After thorough testing with the radio operators we found there are still some things we run into though. So here is our wishlist

    1) Canceling a show ( Already mentioned here before )

    2) Playlist management for running shows ( could be added to the now playing tab ):
    - 1 -Cancel next song
    - 2 -Pause show ( hold playlist )
    - 3 -add New Song ( could be used for jingles as well )

    (with these features we could use it for our live show as well)


    3) Atm a playlist has to be the exact time or shorter then a show to fit. This would leave gaps between shows. We would rather be able to make the playlist a little bit longer so it gets cut off or cross-faded with the next shows first song.

    4) Off Air : We would love to be able to stop the audio output by pressing the On Air button.

    5) Stream output: It would be great if the stream output would stop sending when there is no show on air. Not sure if liquidsoap is able to do so though.

    6) Ability to add scheduled events:
    - 1 - insert song/jingle/playlist every 10 minutes ( or any other interval )
    - 2 - insert song/jingle/playlist every 4 songs ( or any other interval )

    7) Ability to define a live input stream that overrules the running [On Air] show.

    8 ) Ability to add a live stream to a show ( so a dj can broadcast from his own pc for example to the server or a timeslot can be filled with a different internet radio station)


    hope you can use our feedback, keep up the good work!

    Cheers
    RadioA6

    Thanks for the feedback, I've added it all to our todo list :). A number of
    these will be in the next version.

    Hi radioa6,

    > /(with these features we could use it for our live show as well)

    I have opened tickets for all these ideas. Thanks for the input :-)

    Cheers!

  • Cheers for taking our wishes and needs seriously , it's been a very busy week for our station. Getting sponsoring etc.

    I have little spare time on my hands and what i have, i use for programming in liquidsoap atm.

    Also trying to understand the idea behind pypo ( did not really look into it yet ). As far as i understand its a dynamic way to sent commands to liquidsoap ? Can Pypo accept and push any liquidsoap command ? Please correct me if im wrong Wink

    I though of an idea to get the show off air that would suffice for us. If the on Air button goes into a continuous loop of playing the silence.mp3 fallback sample when clicked, it would automatically get filtered out at our streaming server.

    A very Busy

    Pypo is a program that controls liquidsoap. There are two processes:
    Pypo-fetch downloads the schedule & audio from the server, pypo-push sends
    the playlists to liquidsoap.

    We are planning on implementing the ability to delete a show that is running
    for the next release. It will then go back to playing silence.mp3.
