Scheduling and streaming on a shared station

New user of the software and it looks like it could solve a problem for me.

My workflow.  I have 2 x 1 hour slots on a community radio station.

1 is me talking, or pre-recorded, intro music, jingles etc.

So, as it's a shared station and other DJ's are using MIXXX.  When our time comes, we click the stream button and we are off.

I'm wondering if I can set the scheduler, load the tracks and the voice, jingles and then the software will take the stream live at 9pm on a specific date?

Is this possible with the stream to internet plugin?

Many thanks for any input.  Andy.

Thanks for your reply.  I've added my request!  Here's hoping!


Hello Andy,

Not quite.

A "timed" streaming event seems increasingly popular at the moment but isn't something PlayIt Live (or any other software I know of) can do.

You can do the opposite (take a stream to air at a time) relatively easily but what people seem to do is have a timed drop of contributor 1, a few seconds of a holding file (perhaps silence) and then the second person "goes live".

It's tricky to make this "slick" but it can be done.

A vote for this feature request

may help move it up Jason's "to do" list.
