Hi everybody i was wondering, we have like 11000 mp3 but we took them off because is too much and they didn’t mix well and we select like a 1000 only the new ones and hits the question is there any way to tell SAM only to play those selected but for the html request page to show the 11000 and play those only if they are requested? I think it has to be something with the clock wheel configuration or something like that. Thanks in advanced i would appreciate any help.

:(

this is what is write in the config. of the clock wheel.
Code:
Cat['Tracks'].QueueBottom(smLemmingLogic, EnforceRules);
Cat['Music (All)'].QueueBottom(smLRPA, EnforceRules);

I run it similar to what you are describing here
it sounds like...only without a clockwheel..

I simply created a .m3u playlist file of around
2,000 tracks that I loop (repeat) in the Queue
with SAM in the "Play Queue" mode only.
(not auto DJ or Manual DJ)

I'm using this PAL to re-load the playlist when
it gets to the last few tracks:

Code:
PAL.Loop := True;
PAL.WaitForQueue(20);
Queue.AddList('C:\ PATH TO YOUR PLAYLIST FILE HERE.m3u',ipBottom);


*set the WaitForQueue count to what ever you like,
when the queue reach's that many tracks left in queue,
it will re-load your .m3u file to the bottom of the queue list.

The playlist page still shows the entire library
to select requests from,

Works out well for me this way..

Good luck..

Wouldn’t that be a problem with the requests from de SAM html webpage? Because the songs than listeners request will be at the queue bottom so they won’t play until the play list is over right? Thank you very much but I don’t think that’s the solution. Appreciated

That depends on how you have your request policy set up,
inside of SAM..

click:
"Config" then click "Request Policy" on the left..

select "Put request at top of queue"

that will place any requests that come in
at the top of the queuelist...
once the requests have played...your
playlist just continues on as it was doing before
the requests came in..


Your welcome

Yes that’s right but what if there’s a lot of people waiting for their request wouldn’t SAM be letting the first last and the last one to request first it’s a little unfair for the listeners I think but thanks anyways. Appreciated :)

You may need to change your rules to broaden the selection. Please post your title/artist/album/track settings.

If I'm understanding you correctly, you want the entire library of songs requestable but for normal play you only want a smaller selection to be autoplayed?

If so, this is how I have done it.

All songs that I don't want in any clockwheel rotation I place in a category called "Never Play".

All other songs are in various other categories.

My clockwheels only call certain categories and the clockwheels rotate using Event Scheduler. No clockwheels include the "Never Play" category so songs in that category never get normal play.

End result is that all songs are available for request as they are displayed on the site and SAM meanwhile chugs along playing only the songs I want to play.

Ok,

Here's how my clockwheel's are setup:

Late Night Rock Block
Code:
Cat['Rock Block'].QueueBottom(smRandom, NoRules);
Cat['Rock'].QueueBottom(smLRP, NoRules);
Cat['Rock'].QueueBottom(smLRP, EnforceRules);
Cat['Rock Block'].QueueBottom(smRandom, NoRules);
Cat['Rock'].QueueBottom(smLRP, NoRules);
Cat['Rock'].QueueBottom(smLRP, EnforceRules);
Cat['Rock Block'].QueueBottom(smRandom, NoRules);
Cat['Rock'].QueueBottom(smLRP, NoRules);
Cat['Rock'].QueueBottom(smLRP, EnforceRules);
Cat['Rock Block'].QueueBottom(smRandom, NoRules);
Cat['Rock'].QueueBottom(smLRP, NoRules);
Cat['Rock'].QueueBottom(smLRP, EnforceRules);


Morning Show:
Code:
Cat['Music (All)'].QueueBottom(smLRP, EnforceRules);
Cat['Morning Show Promos'].QueueBottom(smRandom, NoRules);
Cat['Music (All)'].QueueBottom(smLRP, EnforceRules);
Cat['Music (All)'].QueueBottom(smLRP, EnforceRules);
Cat['Shouts'].QueueBottom(smRandom, NoRules);
Cat['Music (All)'].QueueBottom(smLRP, EnforceRules);
Cat['Music (All)'].QueueBottom(smLRP, EnforceRules);
Cat['Morning Show Promos'].QueueBottom(smRandom, NoRules);


Regular Rotation:
Code:
Cat['Music (All)'].QueueBottom(smLRP, EnforceRules);
Cat['Promos1'].QueueBottom(smRandom, NoRules);
Cat['Music (All)'].QueueBottom(smLRP, EnforceRules);
Cat['Music (All)'].QueueBottom(smLRP, EnforceRules);
Cat['Shouts'].QueueBottom(smRandom, NoRules);


The easiest way to get something like this for you, now this is how I did it.: In your SAM setup your categories in your proper folders, like for instance you see Promos1 and Music(All). The reasoning for this, is it allows me to pull from different folders when needed.

So in the SAM in Music just setup a folder called "Hits" and another called "Regular Music" for example. To do this just right click on the folder that has Music beside it, then click "New" and type in the name of the folder, do this for all the categories you want under each respective area. Promos, Music, Jingles. However many you need, put them in there. from there setup the clockwheels by going to File>Config>Playlist Rotation Rules>Playlist Logic Modules>Config, and insert and select the folders you want, and set them to Random or whatever and Enforce or don't enforce (your call) after you setup all the areas you want the clockwheel, then hit save, and name your clock, and place it on your Desktop (preferred) then hit ok, ok, ok, and exit the config.

From there go to wherever you have your playlist window, and look at your categories, you should see the folders you created with all the music you uploaded to that specific folder, then after you see everything there, click on the respective top clockwheel looking folder, which will say whatever the category may be and (ALL) beside it, and you should see all songs, promos, jingles, etc., etc., and then you are finished.

All the folders you chose will then show as normal, and the music and promos will show as normal, and since everything was also added to the main directory of the category, you can still have your requester setup to do show all the tracks to be requested.


Hopefully my long explanation helps,
