Multiple Instances of Radio DJ?
« on: April 27, 2020, 10:27:42 AM »
Hi,

I'm happy to say Radio DJ has been chugging along flawlessly for over a year!  During that time I've been shuffled around (like others) amongst various stream service providers.  Now it appears, circumstances dictate that I deliver two versions of my programming (commercial and non-commercial).  I've read it's simple to run two instances of Radio DJ on a windows machine.  Then after reading Gary's tutorial on virtual boxes on linux, https://100001.onl/ https://1921681254.mx/ https://happymod.site/ I think I'd like to try that (as my linux machine has better resources anyway).

So here's the question:  To run two instances of Radio DJ, does each instance need to be in a separate VM box?  Then, will I have to install a windows disk again for the second VM box?  I did read the manual for virtual box, but my brain didn't grab this part.  Soounds like VM would be the way to go to keep them together in the same PC with the same music library, right?

Thanks, as always, for your guidance.

Well in virtualbox i don't know that but when you tik the "alowe multiple instances", you can start more than one Radiodj. One advice is give each started playout it's own DBase entry. You can use the music on the drive for all the instances you start though you have to import them with every RadioDJ started. I have 4 editions of RadioDJ v1.8.2 running on one P4 computer.
Running 3 editions V1.8.2 at www.salto.nl and v1.8.2 at radio251.nl. ( NOW with 2 live studio's! )
