Create an "Interval" playlist with your 2-minute ads set to "pick random" and schedule it as you see fit. That playlist can be set to fire off after X songs or at specific times, I recommend the latter.
It will add one of them ads randomly at the top of the queue.

Not the greatest fan of Centova, here, though.

Hope it helps,
keijo.-

Can you please give an example of the command for an advert playlist to run every 30 minutes. I have scheduled mine but I have never heard any ads running.

Found this on Centova documentation:

Excerpt:

Jingles and Advertisements
Most broadcasts include some type of advertising at regular intervals, ranging from sponsored advertisements to simple station identification or "jingle" tracks.The Interval playlist type allows you to automate the inclusion of such advertisements into your stream at regular intervals.

Configuring a Playlist
A single-playback scheduled playlist will activate on a specific date at a specific time, play to completion, and then disable itself(and never play again).

You can configure an interval playlist by creating a new playlist, then:
  • Set the playlist's type to Interval.
  • Use the Repeat every field to select a repeat interval.You may choose to have the playlist repeat after a certain number of songs, or after a certain number of minutes.
  • Click the Save button to save the playlist.
  • Add media to the playlist as explained in Adding Media to a Playlistin the Basic Usage guide.


Other Settings

Interval playlists support a variety of other features, such as the ability to play more than one track at each interval. For more information about the settings available for Interval playlists, please see the Interval Playlist Options section of the Reference Manual.

End Excerpt.

I'm not exactly into Centova anymore, though.
