I had/ have no idea how set this up

Hi,
We need 3 stations. Actually it's only one but in 3 languages. From a hosting perspective, it seems that your business package covers it all. I like the fact that it is scalable, too.

However, I didn't understand a thing when it came to the Shoutcast Automation System. I'm a bit of a noob.

Can I use Play it Live as planner and Shoutcast for the rest? Will there be help so I can set it up? I have not been able to use the free trial because I couldn't get it started. Is it possible to reset that?

Thanks for your help.

I think that an important question is, if you use Play It Live, will Shoutcast still host.

Thanks for answering

Hi,

I'll try again in a few days when I have a few hours to spare. I already know that I never had that extra top menu. It was so that once in the planner, I couldn't get out. It seems that you have to do something before you get the two menus under each other.

I'll use your links and try to set it up again.

tnx

It's not hard, but it is precise. Here is a step-by-step to get you started.

1. Create one single "Music Box" -- Name it "Music" or anything you want.
2. Upload all of your tracks into it. (200 or so)
3. Add that "box" to one "clock" called "Day".
4. Add "Day" to one "Day Template".
5. Finally, drag that one "DayTemplate" to each day on the calendar under the "Planning" tab.

I end up just working my way left to right through "Audio" "Clocks" "Day Templates" "Planning".

Next you should set up advertisement fillers. If you don't, the planner will plug in some randomly that are totally foreign to your genre.

6. Find several (at least 6) instrumental tracks (or anything you want) that are precisely 2:00 minutes in length.

7. Create a "filler" box naming it "Filler" or anything you want.
8. Upload your 2:00 minute filler tracks into it.
9. Set the constraints on your filler box to the lowest number allowed.
10. Go to the "Planning" page, look to the right under "Ad screens set up"
11. Select your filler box under "Filler box"
12. Generate your Planning for each day. If you already did it in step 5 above, redo it.

Hi Nosti,

Thanks for your instructions.

I've been pretty busy and I wanted a clear head and schedule before I tried setting this up again. Your help is highly appreciated and I'll keep you posted about the progress.

Greetings,
Dankje
