I would like to set up a scheduled event that will connect the streams at a given time and disconnect again later. This is for a second (free but licensed) station I'm looking at.
This is to enable the automated playing of some pre-recorded shows where we could use PlayIt to connect to the server, play the show(s), then disconnect to leave the server open for another presenter to connect or to default to autoDJ.
To explain. The server only supports one log in at a time. We have live presenters who need to be able to log in and do their show. They do so directly to the server. We also have some pre-recorded shows that I need to feed to the server at given times.
For example. Sid's Show is set up here in PlayIt using a clock and the clock scheduler to play at 3pm on Friday for 2 hours. I would like to have the ability to start the streams at 3pm and disconnect at 5pm
There are several of these type of shows, Mikes Music might be another, 8pm for an hour the same day. But, inbetween there are two other presenters who connect to the server directly to do their shows.
PlayIt does not have any means of letting a presenter log in, and my Internet connection changes IP address without warning (dynamic...) so that wouldn't work anyway.
These presenters don't have a stream of their own so we cannot pick up a remote URL, although that works for some and we could even re-stream a remote URL using a scheduled event if it was available.
The server is totally separate to PlayIt of course.
