Internet Radio Hosting with Auto DJ
Scouting for a stream provider that offers internet radio hosting with Auto DJ services?
CloudRadio has hosted radio stations, both big and small, for more than a decade.
We understand and solve challenges internet radio broadcasters face.
For instance, we developed a modern, simple-to-use console in response to control panels that were too complex to figure out and lacking on essential tools.
Recently, we released our cloud-based auto DJ. Straightaway, let’s look at the reasons why you may need this solution:
Reasons why you need internet radio hosting with AUTO DJ
1. When broadcasting live from a home computer is not viable
Some factors can make broadcasting live from home at all times impossible.
For instance, if you have a limited internet plan or slow upload speeds that may cause buffering issues.
Maybe, you’re broadcasting from a laptop that you’re also using for other tasks.
2. Internet and power outages
If an unexpected internet or power outage affects your studio, your stream will be offline for a couple of seconds, minutes or even days until the matter is resolved.
It can be instrumental to have an Auto DJ running on the cloud, and acting as a back up to your mainstream.
3. Technical difficulties, upgrades or software crashes
It’s not a rare occurrence for a playback software to stop working, a PC to disconnect from the WiFi without your knowledge, or the computer to overheat and shut off.
You need a way to get notified if your stream is offline.
We offer free stream monitoring services. Our system samples your stream after a couple of minutes for dead air and sends you an email.
4. Unattended broadcasting
Unattended broadcasting will be a lot easier when you have an Auto DJ that you can access anywhere you go, as long as you have internet.
And if you don’t have time to create playlists, the Auto DJ can select and play songs randomly.
How our Auto DJ can help
The main function of an Auto DJ is to automate your playback. You give it a bunch of files, and it selects and plays them.
Okay...this may not sound groundbreaking in this modern age. But think back to the older days of radio, when recordings were made by cutting grooves on discs, and the ‘disc jockey’ had to feed the discs into the phonograph manually.
Besides performing its primary function, our Auto DJ solves other pressing challenges such as:
You can create playlists, add songs you have uploaded, and schedule the playlist in a dynamic calendar.
- Inserting jingles after X number of tracks
You can upload your jingles into a default folder and specify the interval after which a jingle is played.
- Stream to SHOUTcast, Icecast or Steamcast servers
Are you hosting your radio somewhere else, but can’t get internet hosting with an Auto DJ? That’s a big challenge our Auto DJ solves.
It can stream to one radio server, different mountpoints or even to multiple servers.
