I also agree very much with the »check events« suggestion—could really save some setup work.

Switching off Gap Killer and disable Fades and XFade on the Station IDs usually helps. I even »prefill« the ID3v2 Tags on Liners, Jingles and Drop-Ins with XFade &fie=0&foe=0&xf=0&ge=0 SongType J (or other appropriate letter) (This helps avoiding manual »Song Info« edits on material ...

Then again, you can still use PAL’s WebToFile() to get the file(s) onto your local disc. Seems quite reliable here, but only for HTTP protocol: WebToFile('D:\Temp\NextShow.mp3', 'http://some.server.com/shows/show-20081118.mp3'); But I reckon you didn’t want to script, right? (Still the automated/sch...

Shouldn’t be much of a problem, though I never tried: Put the SAMReporter folder and all subfolders onto a PHP-enabled web server (check local php.ini for required settings) that has access to your SAM PC’s mySQL database, change SAMReporter/htdocs/config.local.php and SAMReporter/htdocs/dbconfig.xm...

I’d suggest keeping all machines sync’ed using NTP stratum 2 (or 3) time server pools (should be exact enough). Since some PC clocks drift a lot , we recommend to our users to sync every hour, and actually distribute a small .reg file (for Windows) to them that sets the correct time servers ( not Wi...

Since this is a »Feature Requests« thread, I’d like to mention the following and hope it’ll be fixed soon: 1. When reading/writing MP3 ID3 tags, SAM stores the BPM value in the »XFade« tag, within the »&bmp=« field. Unfortunately, the decimal point character out of Windows' Regional Settings is ...

And I hope for more support of the Tags that are defined for some things … :wink: It’s actually some work fiddling around with »XFade« in Mp3tag, but fortunately we have RegExp. :D

You’re very welcome, thanks for the feedback!

I usually also try to test things under »stress conditions« but of course one can’t test for each and every kind of setup. So it’s always great to get some feedback.

Yeah, sorry, I left the code »as-is« (i.e., German), in order not to introduce some typos. Lines #47 & 51 are the key (it's in the comment at the right even): Change addStr := ' [Hörerwunsch'; // ' [Request' and addStr := addStr + ' von ' + requestBy; // ' by ' to addStr := ' [Request'; // ' [Re...

… and unfortunately XFade is language settings-dependant … so I had to convert 22,000 files to work on a German Windows! (The XFade &bmp= [sic] setting for BPM stores the decimal separator that is used in Windows’ regional settings, not a uniform ».«. This is why I had to re-tag all my files to ...

You might want to use something like the code snippet below. Just bear in mind that the function »SongList« only returns the fields ID, songID, sortID, requestID, artist, title, and duration in the TDataSet returned. PAL.LockExecution; var Q, QInfo: TDataSet; if (not Queue.IsEmpty) then begin // Que...

Do you need to keep the file? I usually just stream it down directly from the newscaster, like this: // Sky News.PAL - U.K. news at full hour PAL.Loop := True; PAL.WaitForTime('XX:59:53'); Queue.AddFile('M:\MP3\Other\Jingles\MCH\Moonbase - News 2.mp3', ipTop); Queue.AddURL('http://xxx.xyz.com/newspa...

I found some potential problems with my above code: ⋅ It draws info from »ActivePlayer.whatnot« and it can happen (though seldom) that the active player actually changes while we are in the routine. Boom! ⋅ The »character cleanup« routine had a bug when no dedication was made: A ...

I recently found it necessary to add dedication info to some client's stream, so I've come up with yet another version of Xgeek's script. This one also tries to address the »control character/linefeed« problem and the damn shoutCAST »password shown« bug that they didn't fix since shoutCAST v1.9.2 … ...
