News on the hour ( adding jingles and news )
  • I posted my question about adding jingles and news to the liquidsoap site. There quite helpfull in assisting as well. Maybe you can make use of the answer i got ( i sure did )

    Hi,

    First, a simple but slightly degenerate solution: use smooth_add()
    with a ratio of 0, it'll keep playing the music in the background with
    a volume of 0, and play your news on top of it. You get smooth
    transitions.

    Another simple solution is to use a switch or fallback, probably track
    insensitive so that the news starts exactly at the right time. One
    issue with this is that the other source is frozen in time when you
    switch to the news, which might or might not be wanted. When you go
    back to it, it might be unpleasant to start in the middle of the song
    that you left... lookup fallback.skip() for ways to get around this.

    Sorry to not propose some code, I don't have much time right now. If
    you don't manage with those hints, somebody may be able to give more
    specific help.

    hi (mysterious) radioa6 - who are you :) ?

    the reason i ask, it looks like you are collecting a lot of tricks and
    hints that would server very well in our documentation. and if you are
    interested to find yourself loved by our community, i would suggest you
    team up with daniel james - who is leading the documentation team - and
    start contributing these ideas and solutions in our manual in process:
    http://booki.flossmanuals.net/airtime/edit/

    what do you think, you mysterious bringer of solutions?

    all the best, micz

  • Hi

    well it ain't that mysterious, but i like to do my contribution because you guys already helped us out so mutch. Atm im to bussy building the station, setting up a news redaction and just the general running of the station to really contribute, so i just post what i run into while setting up the technical part of the station.

    I love to fiddle and try things out till they work, must be the hidden engineer in me. When time permits me ( probably in a month or two) i have some more time to really write up something good

    Cheers
    Radioa6
