So Playlist event is greyed out.

(Main Category, Sub Category and Genre.)



These two buttons are for each rotation rule you want to add on the line

A rotation setup of tracks from category without sweepers.


By the lines 1, 2 and 4 you can see that when it is from the main category Music the box repeat Rules is enabled and will be used as you have set in radiodj settings.

Track From SQL Querty.


The use of it by Marius:


Since not all users are familiar with SQL language, i will try to leave here some query examples.
First, open the rotation editor and add a "Track from SQL Query" entry to the rotation. Now double click that entry.
The SQL editor should appear.


My first example is something that was asked recently:PLAY TWO TRACKS FROM THE SAME ARTIST.Paste the following query to the editor and save it.

SELECT `ID`, `artist` FROM `songs` WHERE `artist`=(
SELECT `artist` FROM `songs` 
WHERE `enabled`=1 
AND `song_type`=0 
AND ((`start_date` <= Now()) AND (`end_date` >= NOW() OR `end_date` = '2002-01-01 00:00:01'))
AND ((TIMESTAMPDIFF(MINUTE, `date_played`, NOW()) > $TrackRepeatInterval$) AND (TIMESTAMPDIFF(MINUTE, `artist_played`, NOW()) > $ArtistRepeatInterval$)) 
GROUP BY `artist` 
ORDER BY `date_played` ASC LIMIT 1) 
AND `enabled`=1 
AND `song_type`=0 
AND ((`start_date` <= Now()) AND (`end_date` >= NOW() OR `end_date` = '2002-01-01 00:00:01'))
AND ((TIMESTAMPDIFF(MINUTE, `date_played`, NOW()) > $TrackRepeatInterval$) AND (TIMESTAMPDIFF(MINUTE, `artist_played`, NOW()) > $ArtistRepeatInterval$)) 
ORDER BY `date_played` ASC 


Press the button

The query will search for enabled tracks that are song type and where artists has more than one tracks available. It also applies the user repeat rules to the results.
This can be a separate rotation, loaded using an event for example when you want to play this kind of format, or it can be added to an existing rotation.As a rule, please remember that any query you add as a rotation entry MUST return at least the track ID.

If the query is not ok than you get a error.


Closes the screen by pressing on.

And save the rotation.

Screen update v.1.8.1.

There is a extra button for duplicate a rotation line.

Select a line and click on the button.

Under the selected line will be placed a duplicate line.
This allows you to select the duplicated line and move down or up in the rotations.


SQL query editor.

In the screen you see a circle on the intervals. You can use them after the SQL NOW() Function. Like: ((TIMESTAMPDIFF(MINUTE, `date_played`, NOW()) > $TrackRepeatInterval$) AND (TIMESTAMPDIFF(MINUTE, `artist_played`, NOW()) > $ArtistRepeatInterval$))

So it use the rotations rules of RDJ.
