Important: FAQ RadioDJ v2.0.0
« on: December 24, 2017, 11:27:21 AM »
OK we seem to be getting a lot of people asking if the Plugins from v1.8.2 will work with RadioDJv2

The short answer is NO

This includes all variants of the Streaming plugins.

If you're using DSP plugins they will also NOT work due to the DSP stacker plugin being obsolete too and that always was a 3rd party plugin.

If you need to process sound with stereo tool you'll have to use the standalone version for the time being.

We cannot give help and support with A******t end of story.

How do I enable disabled songs in the database?

Its not difficult to do just log into your RadioDJ database and run this query using Heidi SQL

Code: [Select]
update songs
set enabled='1'
where enabled='-1'

It should hopefully re enable all your disabled tracks.

Will RadioDJv2 install on Windows XP?

Apparently .NET 4.6.1 won't install on Windows XP (Confirmed from a user this morning informing me of that fact)

Quote
Bummer. 4.6.1 will not run on XP SP3. That kills that idea.

So there is no way you'll get RadioDJv2 working on Windows XP as it requires .NET 4.6.1 to function.

Maybe its time to Upgrade that PC/Laptop for a machine running Windows 7/8/10?

We said a while back that newer software may not function on XP.

Go to the options menu and choose playlists from there you can delete the playlists you need to delete.

FAQ: I've just upgraded to v2.0.0 and my rotations won't load, How do i fix them?

In HeidiSQL you need to run the following query on the RadioDJv2 database

Code: [Select]
update rotations_list set mood='Any' where mood IS NULL or mood='';
update rotations_list set gender='Any' where gender IS NULL or gender='';       
update rotations_list set language='Any' where language IS NULL or language='';

It should hopefully update the rotations table and then your rotations should work (You update your database at your own risk take a backup before applying any changes)

If you're still having issues after using this query then post on the forums and someone will come to your rescue.

(Thanks to Calypso for the query)

RadioDJv2 says I don't have access and that I need to contact the administrator

The default login for RadioDJ is admin/admin when you've logged in you can either disable user accounts or set yourself an account up using the user account control from users in the options menu

Top Tip: If you do set yourself an administrator account up in RadioDJ make sure you write the username & password down as the PW is encrypted in the database

Q: Can I stream music from sites such as Spotify, Soundcloud, Youtube, Mixcloud etc... in RadioDJ ?

A: In short the answer is NO

Those sites DO NOT allow the music to be streamed/played outside of their websites for legal reasons.

Even re-recording/rebroadcasting those streams/songs is also a big NO NO!

Q: What about the playback of podcasts?
A: You can play podcasts in RadioDJ as long as you have the permission from the author of that podcast to re-broadcast it.

We hope this clears up this matter.

My Copy of RadioDJ seems to be Sluggish/Freezing

What we suggest you do is add the RadioDJ program folder C:\RadioDJv2 to the exclusions list of Windows Defender and/or your Antivirus solution.

https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/4028485/windows-10-add-an-exclusion-to-windows-defender-antivirus

We also suggest adding the music folders to the exclude list in WD or you AV software. That will help with performance

This will stop important RadioDJ files from being scanned and should improve performance

As always if this still doesn't solve your issue post on the support forum.

How to further improve the performance on Windows 10?

- Disable Indexing Service. Indexing service is helping your computer file search, but it comes with a great cost, performance. So if you noticed that sometimes your computer is not responding as fast as usual, this service can be the culprit, because it scans each of your files regularly to keep track of them.

- Disable "Connected User Experiences and Telemetry" service, which basically keeps tracking whatever you do (and even sends some data to M$ servers)...  ;)

Further To Marius's post above its also a good Idea to disable the "Windows Search" service if you don't need it working that can use up CPU without you realising

Control Panel> Administrative tools>Services

You will still be able to search files and folders just not as fast.

Q: How do I find the RadioDJ error logs?

A: Providing you've enabled error reporting in RadioDJ (Main options Screen) you need to do the following.

Start>Control Panel>Administrative tools>Event viewer>Windows Logs>Application

Or the Logs folder in the RadioDJ directory

It should tell you if there are any errors relating to RadioDJ there.

Q: Will RadioDJ work with Oracle MySQL8?

A: After doing tests it appears that RadioDJ cannot currently connect to MySQL 8, the database setup tool cannot see the MySQL server. Due to changes in the way MySQL authenticates.

If you want to use it along side RadioDJv2 you'll have to use the "Legacy Authentication Method"  when setting the server up which isn't much better than running a 5.xx version of MySQL.

If that sounds like a hassle use https://djgarybaldy.blogspot.com/2020/08/installing-maria-db.html

If this situation changes we will update this information.

Another Tip for smooth audio is to do the following:

Go into Windows 10 sound settings and Click on Sound control Panel>Highlight the Line/soundcard output in use and click Properties.. Under the advanced tab there will be a box ticked

"Allow applications to take exclusive control of this device"

Uncheck that box and click apply. (For windows 7 right click on the speaker icon to get into the sound card settings)

Your sound should improve with this setting unchecked its how we've ran Windows for a good few years now.

Hope this Tip helps people.
