autoplay after restart
« on: February 07, 2016, 01:48:14 PM »
Hello,

I'm wondering if there is a way for RadioDJ to open automatically and start playing if for some unexpected reason the pc restarts (e.g. due to blackout).

Thanks in advance fo your response.

Yes there is.

First select the "options" button, then select "options". Then you'll see a settings menu with 6 tabs. The 3rd tab you can choose to set "AutoDJ" enable at startup and you can select "Autoplay on Start-up. If you hit play on Radio DJ and the application closes, at restart it wil load a list and play when it is ready.

Hello, thank you for the quick reply.

I've already have those settings checked, but what it does is that when I click to open the program it is automatically set on AUtoDJ and starts playing.

I'm looking more for a way that when RadioDJ is playing and for some reason the pc restarts, I would like the program to open automatically without me having manually to click on it and open. I don't know if there is some other settings that I have to consider.

There are also startup type events for more advanced tasks to run when the program starts.

Hello, Marius.

Yes, I'm aware of the start-up events, but I was looking more for a way to auto-launch RadioDJ in case the pc blacks out and restarts.

Thanks a lot, Capt_Fuzzy!  :)

That was exactly what I was looking for.
I just tried it and it works like a charm.
