Manage and upload your audio files. There are 3 main folders automatically set up which you should not delete:
|The main folder for your audio files. You can create as many sub-folders as you require. If no playlists are scheduled then AutoDJ will automatically load all audio files from your media folder and any sub-folders to create a default playlist|
|Any saved live recordings will be saved to the live folder. The recordings will get added to your default playlist|
|Upload your jingles, sweepers and ads here. If you have jingles activated then content from this folder will be put into the rotation between tracks|

|All Schedules||You can view all scheduled playlists. From this page, you can also prioritise your schedules in cases where they overlap. For example, if you have a playlist set for Wednesdays but need to run a sepcific show in the evening, then you can set the evening playlist as a higher priority and it will interrupt the main Wednesday playlist|
Connect a live source without the need to stop your AutoDJ stream, our redesigned AutoDJ system takes care of the seamless transition between pre-recorded content and live shows.
This means that you and your DJs should not connect to the stream server itself - you should use the settings provided here to connect live.
How does it work?
When you or your DJs connect using the settings above, your AutoDJ will fade out the current track and start streaming your live content, ensuring that the transition is smooth and free from any buffering or reconnections.
When you disconnect the live stream, AutoDJ will start the next track from the beginning. No need to worry about your DJs forgetting to restart AutoDJ after their show!
We recommend connecting with the bitrate that you have set in the AutoDJ settings.
You can set AutoDJ to automatically record live shows. The recordings will be saved in the 'Live' folder and added to the default rotation. The name of the file will be in the following format:
My Show Name (DATE).mp3
You can choose the date format in the AutoDJ settings according to your local custom, available options are DD-MM-YYYY, MM-DD-YYYY or YYYY-MM-DD.
Note: If you stream two shows on the same day with the same name then they will get combined into one file.
You should set the Stream Name field in your streaming software to the name of your show. This will be passed to the server as the 'Song Title'.
If you change the song title during a show then it will be appended to your show title on the server, however it will not be visible when the show is re-played by AutoDJ as the song title is not saved as part of the file name.
