We have several weekly radio shows which are added a several different date time in the week.
For the moment the operation is manual, after synchronisation the Element is drag and drop on each different hour.
As the files are placed at several date time, I think that either Events scheduler nor Edit Hour Template are able to do it.
Do you have recommanded functions and scripts in order to add those radios shows at several time code ?
Thank you Stefan for all your advices.
I added “External Items” at all the different times for all the shows. And drag and drop the shows in the External Item New Item windows. That optimise a lot of manual work.
But each week the shows are different. I tried replace and erase all the files but it doesn’t refresh the playlist automaticly. We need to regenerate all the different hours for the new week.
Is there a simple way to refresh the playlist with the new shows without regenerate mini-scheduler ? …Because it will delete all the unique non-regular sounds added manually in the playlist.
I have the version 6.3.11 so it won’t be possible by the Automatic File Container.
In the previous link you’ve sent there is a check mark “Try to reload playlist when content change” proposed in the capture.
I think that it would be a solution to regenerate playlist automaticly after each changes in the files. But I don’t have that checkmark in 6.3.11. Is it because it is in version 7. also ? Then I will need to upgrade.
Sorry to disappoint you: It reads “Try to reload PLAYER when content changes” so this is completely different…
Just to repeat:
That would be the only solution.
To be clear: As far as I understood the “Use latest file in folder” with automatic containers is working the same way like elements with variables. It looks for the latest file in folder (or whatever you set as condition) not until the player is (pre-)loading the element.
I HIGHLY recommend to update to the last version 6.3.22 - your’s is as of May 2021 and there were many improvements in function and bugfixes made since…
