Radio DJ no ads

Hello,

My stations are running with Radio DJ, altacast plug in.
I make good hours per day so i'd like to monetize all of that.
I created my mp3 file Advert: - Advert: and all.
The problem is that the ads don't start/play.
I know that depends on the country the ads won"t be heard but the just the mp3 file but there's nothing in France and USA.

Hope you can help.

Thanks a lot.

have you verified in the stream login that no advert breaks (ads) have been played?

And this as well in Advert Group Details: [ View ]

Ad setup is correct, but no adverts / groups are currently assigned to this stream.

I don't understand at all.

good, if you see "Playing Now: Advert Trigger" - that means you're set up correctly.

Go to your stream login and click on "Status & Listeners" - look for the column with the dollar signs - look for dual dollar signs - ads have been delivered to those listeners. If you only see single dollar signs, then check your log and search "advert" - look for errors

Unfortunately, not every listener will hear ads, it depends on country

Hello,
i have some double dollars, i've heard a few times the ads (France).
It's been 2-3 days that I dont' get the ads anymore, i still have the double dollars with some listener address.
i have a lots of numbers here : Advert Group Details.
Seems that i'ts ok now but i'm worried about the fact that i don't hear/get the ads anymore.
Is there a special time to deliver them like at :15 or :45 ?
I've read that we can choose to trigger up to 5 commercial breaks per hour and somewhere else that it is 5 commercial by day.
I get this now when i check Playing Now: Advert Trigger - Advert is it ok ?

Thanks very much for your help jcnyct.

yes, you have to play 2 stopsets (advert file) within a certain time every hour.

read this: http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?t=378676

basically, the first time the stopset plays it registers/prepares ads (if available) for all the advert groups tuned in for the next time stopset plays - that's why you see the list of advert groups growing - of course that depends if an ad is available for that specific advert group --

It might be your software you are using. I use music one and had that problem. I couldn't set up the trigger file as a ad file. I had to set it up as a music file and then it worked. It should have worked with the ad file they say, but it didn't. So you might have an issue how you are setting it up. But don't worry about it. They don't pay you your money anyone. I'm still waiting for my 2,3,4th qtr checks from 2016. They say its on the way. Maybe I get them before I die of old age.

Hello all,

after a few days of test it seems that it works fine. Yes sometimes there's no ad and that's normal.

Now i don't know where to check that my stations make money and how much.
