Event Actions.

Please pay special attention to the right side of the screen when an action is chosen.

Actions list.

Load Track.

Selecting load track shows.

The track list of all tracks.

Select a track.

You can make the choice for a Category - Sub Category or Genre or use search.

Load Track From Category.

A pop up screen opens.

Load Playlist.

In the Right side screen you can adjust:

The position:

Playlist start on top or bottom.

Select a playlist (Playlist can be made in the Playlist Builder)

Load M3U Playlist.

The moment you select Load M3U playlist a pop-up screen opens, navigate to your music folders and select a M3U playlist.

Load M3U Playlist By Date Mask.

New in version 1.7.9 Load M3U Playlist By Date Mask.

The moment you select Load M3U playlist By Date Mask a pop-up screen opens, navigate to your music folders and select the folder where the playlist are.

In this example I have made folders for the days.

Note: Start whit just one folder, until you know how it works, you can experiment later.

Make playlist like dd-MM-yyyy.m3u (01-012-2015.m3u).

dd= day number.

MM= month number.

yyyy= year number.

Note from Marius:

HOWEVER: i don't recommend you to load a single file for 24h, because it will slow down the program. Instead you can split in 2 or 4 pieces (2x12h or 4x6h) and make use of the hour mask to load them.

Also if the m3u files are already imported in RadioDJ, the loading process should be fairly quick, but if the files are not imported, RadioDJ will import them, but it can take a lot of time and you can end up with no files to play until the process will complete.

So to do in 4 pieces, name them like.

dd-MM-yyyy 1.m3u

dd-MM-yyyy 2.m3u

dd-MM-yyyy 3.m3u

dd-MM-yyyy 4.m3u

Look ad the argument field, it can be dd-MM-yyyy for a single file or for more files then use dd-MM-yyyy 1 (or any number your using).

Special attention for the following!

Wrong playlist setup.

Diana Ross & The Supremes - Where Did Our Love Go.mp3

The Four Tops - Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever.mp3

Stevie Wonder - A Place In The Sun.mp3

The error is RadioDJ can't find the track

Must bi.

C:\music_folder\Diana Ross & The Supremes - Where Did Our Love Go.mp3

C:\music_folder\The Four Tops - Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever.mp3

C:\music_folder\Stevie Wonder - A Place In The Sun.mp3

Now RadioDJ can find the track.

If you make a playlist whit the PLAYLIST BUILDER all will be ok.

Example:

Playlist from Playlist Builder:
