Main Actions.

Action list:


  • Load Track.
  • Load Track From Category.
  • Load Playlist.
  • When this appeared in the screen, there are no playlists!

    Bar Without Text

    Select on Options: the playlist.

    On position you can choose to the Top or Bottom.

  • Load M3U Playlist.
  • Opens your explorer screen to select a M3U playlist.

    Select the position.

  • Load M3U Playlist By Date Mask.

  • Opens your folder lister to select a folder where the M3U list are with the date to play.

    You have to set the argument field with the date mask!

    Example: M3U name is: 2017-07-25.m3u

    The date part in the file is 2017-07-25
    Date mask is: Y-m-d in the argument field (used separator is - a dash)

    Note, this/it must be according to the PHP date().

    Set in the argument field:

    Don't forget the file extension.

    The php date() is: Day d Day of the month, 2 digits with leading zeros 01 to 31 D A textual representation of a day, three letters Mon through Sun j Day of the month without leading zeros 1 to 31 Month m Numeric representation of a month, with leading zeros 01 through 12 n Numeric representation of a month, without leading zeros 1 through 12 Year Y A full numeric representation of a year, 4 digits Examples: 1999 or 2003 y A two digit representation of a year Examples: 99 or 03
    Having a deeper understanding explained of programming in php!
    Well this is not the intention.
    Just a little bit of knowledge is enough, as showed in the list.
    How the date mask works.

    Also possible is a file name and hour like: morning_(2017-07-25)10.m3u

    The mask will be: morning(Y-m-d)H.m3u

    a Lowercase Ante meridiem and Post meridiem am or pm A Uppercase Ante meridiem and Post meridiem AM or PM B Swatch Internet time 000 through 999 g 12-hour format of an hour without leading zeros 1 through 12 G 24-hour format of an hour without leading zeros 0 through 23 h 12-hour format of an hour with leading zeros 01 through 12 H 24-hour format of an hour with leading zeros 00 through 23 i Minutes with leading zeros 00 to 59 s Seconds, with leading zeros 00 through 59 u Microseconds (added in PHP 5.2.2).

Same note applies as for u.

    Smart timing.

    To resume the behavioral: (by Marius)

    Let's say you set the smart timing event to run exactly at 10.00:00, with a 30 seconds offset value in RadioDJ options.
    mouse over image will magnified
    If the playing track will end between 09:59:30 and 10:00:30, the event will wait for the track to end, otherwise it will run as a normal event at the hour you've set, 10:00:00.

    When the smart timing can be used, beside the event name will appear "(Smart Timing)". and the remaining time until the event will be the same as the remaining time of the playing track.
