Jingles and Advertisements

Jingles and Advertisements

Most broadcasts include some type of advertising at regular intervals, ranging from sponsored advertisements to simple station identification or "jingle" tracks. The Interval playlist type allows you to automate the inclusion of such advertisements into your stream at regular intervals.

Configuring a Playlist

A single-playback scheduled playlist will activate on a specific date at a specific time, play to completion, and then disable itself (and never play again).

You can configure an interval playlist by creating a new playlist, then:

  1. Set the playlist its type to Interval.

  2. Use the Repeat every field to select a repeat interval. You may choose to have the playlist repeat after a certain number of songs, or after a certain number of minutes.

  3. Click the Save button to save the playlist.

  4. Add media to the playlist as explained in Adding Media to a Playlist in the Basic Usage guide.

Other Settings

Interval playlists support a variety of other features, such as the ability to play more than one track at each interval. For more information about the settings available for Interval playlists, please see the Interval Playlist Options section of the Reference Manual.
