stream24's Auto-DJ solution enables a round-the-clock operation of your web radio without to having broadcast (permanently) by yourself. There are two operation modes: Master and Fallback.
Auto DJ is best explained with the term "server-based playlist":
Here's how it works:
1. Upload MP3s using FTP.
2. With the help of the playlist generator, easily create a playlist in the browser using drag and drop.
3. Select a playlist and start Auto-DJ.
Auto DJ master mode
In master mode, the Auto-DJ feeds the regular live stream directly. Frequent changes between Auto-DJ and Live-DJ (moderation) are not planned. In Master mode, the Auto-DJ must be stopped before a Live-DJ can take over the stream operation.
Auto DJ fallback mode
Frequent changes between Live & Auto DJ.
In fallback mode, the Auto-DJ is streaming permanently to a fallback mountpoint. The main mountpoint remains free for the real live feeds of the alternating Live-DJs.
If no Live-DJ is streaming, listeners hear the Auto-DJ stream. As soon as a Live-DJ takes over, the listeners are automatically redirected to the Live-DJ stream and vice versa from the Live-DJ stream to the Auto-DJ program when the live source switches off again.
The switch is for the listeners without disconnection if Live-DJ and Auto-DJ stream both with exactly the same bitrate and sample rate, e.g. MP3 128/44 stereo.
