The path to playlist location was wrong. It works now.  ;D

Hi Guys,

The last three weeks I have been testing AdMaster with an older version of RadioDJ which uses rpl files instead of m3u files.
All my experiences were discussed with the maker of AdMaster so he could modify the software to output usable files for RadioDJ.
One of the key features that is very interesting is the option to set a database reference number for each entry.

So the generated rpl files contain the database reference numbers of the commercials instead of the real files.
The big advantage of using database reference numbers, is that all side information is used during playout.
Side information like start time, end time, next time, but also the track info data which is sent to the stream and in the nowplaying file.
There is only 1 downside: Before scheduling your commercial in AdMaster, you have to retrieve the database reference number of that commercial. I do that through Events.

Now, for the newer versions of RadioDJ:
Playlist files in the newer RadioDJ are m3u playlists.
In earlier posts Marius has shown us how to insert m3u playlists that are generated by AdMaster in RadioDJ using Events.
With this method, I wonder if all side information is used? As there is no database record number, RadioDJ will play the real files without side information?
If so, each playlist can contain silences between the various commercials in a break?

Maybe Marius or anyone can clear this?

So my question is: When using the m3u output in AdMaster and using the Marius method to insert the m3u playlists, is the side info, stored in the database records used in the playout?

Thanks for taking the time for this issue.

Sure, no problem.
Even if you load a m3u playlist, the program will search first the database if that filename is already imported and if it is, it will use the available info. In the other case, when the file is not imported, rdj will import the file and only then will add it to the playlist.
This is the reason why i always said that is a good practice to import the files first, edit them, and only after that to use them in playlists. If you load a playlist with 2-300 tracks, it will take a while to import them and you can end up with silence on air, but if the files are already imported, the process will be very fast.

Great!

That means that AdMaster is a very suitable program for scheduling ads for old versions as well as new versions of RadioDJ!
I am going to test the latest version with the M3U playlist outputs and let you know what the result is.
In that test I am going to use your method to insert the playlist.

Thanks for answering so quick, Marius!

Hi Guys,

I have tested RadioDJ 1.8.2. in combination with AdMaster. It works like a charm!

The Events function in RadioDJ inserts the m3u playlists that are generated by AdMaster perfectly.
If a playlist contains commercials, they are inserted at the set time in your Event.
Empty playlists are simply ignored bij RadioDJ.

So AdMaster outputs rpl playlists for old versions of RadioDJ and m3u playlists for new versions of RadioDJ.
 
I must say, RadioDJ and AdMaster make a great pair!

Yvette

Hi guys,

just wanted to let you know that a new version of AdMaster is released. Among other features, it includes predefined templates for connection with RadioDJ both with .m3u and older .rpl files.

I believe this is it. It's a monthly fee involved.

Could you help me HOW to make them work as a great pair? The Admaster created hundreds of m3u's per each commercial break, more than 500. Do I have to assign each mp3u through the event scheduler in RadioDJ???? This is insane, there must be an easier way

Ah, okay, sorry, it had been explained earlier in the thread,
what should I write in the Argument field if I have such format of m3u's:
