I wish to play the top of the hour newscast from Fox. It has a link that remains the same except the hour (in military) changes.
Here is how it’s done in Station Playlist-
I can help with part of it. First, the filename changes each hour. Here is the 2pm cast: File1=http://ak.podcast.foxnewsradio.com/news/05minpodcast14-111418.mp3
So: create a blank text file, and name it Fox.pls
open this pls file in notepad, and copy in this exactly:
Save this file, and insert it in SPL, it will play the 3pm newscast. It doesn't have to download it, it streams it.
you will need to change the 14-111418 each hour. I'm sure there's a way to automate that, but I'm not sure how to do it.
btw: there will be a bit of dead air as the fox stream loads. best to have it follow something with a fade... or if it has to be a cold intro, here's a hint - as a VT with the segue point about 1.5 seconds early. maybe 2.
Now- can this be done in PlayIt Live? How is it done? There must be differences and I’m not sure if PlayIt can demand a link stream by going and getting the link, playing it, and moving on.
