The primary way that AutoDJ functions are through playlists that have been created. These playlists can be shuffled or played in order. Easily the playlists can be modified from the SHOUTcast Control panel whenever you believe a change should be made. When changes are made, the SHOUTcast Control Panel will automatically restart the AutoDJ without disconnecting your current listeners on your station.
The AutoDJ Playlist Manager can be found within the Management menu of the sidebar. Clicking on this link will bring you to the page to create new playlists and modify old/current playlists.
After clicking on AutoDJ Playlist Manager, you will be brought to a page that looks similar to the one below. This is where you will primarily be interacting with your Playlists.
After navigating to the AutoDJ Playlist Manager page, you will have the option to select a Playlist from the Manage Playlists dropdown menu.
Selecting the playlist you want to edit from that list will bring up some options that you can do with the playlist. The screen may look like this,
Here you can see the Selected playlist and the currently active (playing) playlist at the top. Here is a brief description of what each action/field is.
From the playlist modifications, there are edits that you can make to the audio files for the playlist as well. You can drag the audio files around to rearrange the order of them in the playlist. You can also Delete the Song from the Playlist. This will not ask for confirmation and will remove the file as well. Aside from that, you can also update the IDV3v2 Tag for the audio file. This is essentially a song title, similar to the one that is broadcast on your car radio.
Start on the AutoDJ Playlist Management page using the above guides. Then you will want to Manage the playlist that you have created.
Of the available options, you will want to select Upload New Music.
Clicking on the Upload New Music link will bring you to a new page where you can browse your local computer for mp3 files to upload.
After browsing for the mp3 files on your local computer, you can click the Upload button to finish and upload the files to your SHOUTcast station and add them to the playlist.
