A 24 hour rotation used to be fairly common. At a FM station I worked at. We had a 24 hour clock created hour by hour. We created a 24 hour playlist for each day. We could create daily playlists including events for a week or month in advance and walk away.
If adjustments needed to be made to a playlist, they could be pulled up and made on the fly.

Thanks for the tips.

In v0.1.6.0 we are using for production, a 24hr rotation works fine, it takes about 2 minute to generate the full 24 hour rotation, which we can easily edit on the fly.

So, PC resources are not a problem, radiodj handles this perfectly.

In this latest version, generating a long playlist seems much faster and the version overall is much more user friendly.

BUT, for some reason a limit is hit that stops the longer playlist being generated and leaves us with about 11hrs so that is a huge drop in playlist length when the earlier versions produced +24hrs.

Marius, is there a timeout for the playlist generation?

Certainly something has changed.

A few people have recognized that a 24hr playlist is normal in some radio stations and this would seem to be an important capability of your software.

It certainly is for us, and is sorely missed in your new version which has so many huge improvements.

Best
Matthew

Hi Matthew,

I read again your message and maybe i didn't understood it well in first place. You are using the playlist builder to generate a 24h playlist from a rotation, or do you have a single rotation with about 500 entries (one for each song) and the rotation is generated by autodj on the fly?

We fixed ours by specifying a specific folder for album art. Sorted the problem out asap!

Often there is a album photo incorporated in the ID3Tag.

Marius has rdj so programmed that such picture is collected from the ID3Tag and put in the albumart forder of RDJ.

so if you indicate that you want that you should specify where that folder is.

grtz.

Got some news about the playlist builder. As Matthew pointed, very large playlists generated from rotation could be not achieved, so i look into the code and i found the cause. The only minor thing will be that the songs table will have to be updated since i added 2 more columns for temporary data.

The great news is that doing this i could implement track/artist separation for music type files also in playlist builder. I generated a 24 hours playlist with only a few jingles to see if at some point jingles will be dropped, but it worked as it should.

A little more patience to finish all the changes i started and i will publish the new version.  ;)
