Online Request experience
« on: July 15, 2013, 02:24:33 PM »
Maybe very obvious, but helpfull? If you use events to implement the online requests pay attention:

I have made events every 10 mins to implement the Online Requests, where i only add 2 numbers at once. Two numbers can be played in 10 mins... If you don't limit the numbers of requests in the parameter, and many users add requests, the requests won't be played first in - first out. Example:

10 requests are in the queue. There is an event which puts them in the playlist. After 10 minutes, the third number is playing.  In the mean time 5 more requests were added. The new event (which is 10 minutes after the first) will put those 5 tracks on top of the playlist.... The remaining 7 will be played much later

regards,

marcel

I find it's best to to load requests via rotations they get played in the order they were received.

That is a better solution, but what is your rotation look like? Say you have 5 entry's with a requests, and 1 without a request? What if there arn't any requests? What does rdj do? I have to test it... Now i'm sure every 10 mins to have two requests from top of the list..

I tend to do a rotations like this 2 Requests every 12 song rotation.

 

OK so there are no jingles in at present as still in process of setting the station up from scratch but i hope it helps.

Bear in mind due to DMCA rules Requests ideally need to be delayed for a period of about 60 minutes.  2 requests and hour should be enough. Your a radio station not a jukebox.

Haha i'll ask them to drop a coin into it... We don't have that kind of rules over here. We'll have to pay an extra amount of royalties if we are using this kind of options... But youre right, we're not a jukebox. By giving the users this much entry's they will destroy our format..
