Ability to play "blocks" (or mixes) of music and stay in compliance.
Various users are requesting a way to play a block of music as in a mixshow or similar/identical to a "top 20 countdown" in a scheduled show (Prerecorded). Broadcasters are asking of ways to stay compliant such as: Submitting a playlist as a txt file for reporting and/or having a tool to timestamp a large file in to smaller segments.
Included is an image form a different website that has the functionality of adding timestamps and tracks to a single file uploaded to their servers.
Yes! Please implement this. When I had to move from my previous broadcasting platform to LIVE365, I lost two very popular shows due to the licensing rules here.
I have been asking for this for almost a year now. Hope it happens soon.

HUGE plus for several reasons. Most of us could pre-record let's say an hour show with music, ID's etc, upload the mp3 in one file and schedule it. Or a 24 hour playlist. But, as it is, that can't happen since there is no way to send meta tag data to stay compliant. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE work on this ;)
This is a very important feature Live 365 needs to offer. Presenters/DJs are what differentiates internet broadcasting from other music platforms in a positive way. They are the brand advocates companies like Live 365 can rely on to drive traffic to the platform.

Please implement this!
I was wondering if Live365 has any plans to put something like this in place, and is there a proposed time frame?
97.3 The Arc wrote "as it is, that can't happen since there is no way to send meta tag data to stay compliant." There is a way to do this, but it's labor intensive. Cue sheets are simple text files that will run in tandem (real-time) with your pre-recorded program. We utilize a popular automation play out software that self-creates the cue sheet as you record the show. It captures any metadata you choose a few seconds before the music track starts. Most collection services accept them.
I remember on the old Live365 platform a broadcaster had created a little program called SendSongInfo which i used during live broadcasts which you could type in the meta data and would manually send Track, Artist, Album data to Live365. The DJ software I used went through mixing desk to a seperate computer which ran the broadcast software so was not involved in the stream itself so needed this little tool. Would be useful if a tool like this could be made again
This is fantastic that this is slated for the platform. What is the expected release date? Thank you!
Is there an update on if this is being rolled out soon?
this would be an awesome add....because sometimes i have artist that come thru that arent available on the day of the show....so prerecorded would be awesome
This would really be nice!
I need this feature!
This feature would be huge please!
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!! make this available soon.
Please add this. I air a few programs that are a solid block and it has been a struggle to try and find ways to to stay compliant.
Please implement this ASAP. I need it NOW !! Will be a great feature for incorporating pre-assembled shows from other contributors.
As a syndicated show producer, I welcome the addition of .txt file or .csv file playlist uploads. Many Live365 stations are unable to air syndicated shows with the present setup. Please make this available. Thank you!
I have been asking you guys about something like this for almost a year; this would certainly be greatly beneficial to those of us
who wish to produce prerecorded music shows and still be compliant. You guys really need to set this up immediately!
I don't see how stations could program an hour of music without commercials and still be in compliance.
This is a feature I'd like. You should implement this.
I believe that this is a great feature.
Let's see clearly in 2020! Surely there can be some flexibility to enable this, even if it means we need to manually insert timestamped cue points listing out the tracks.
Yes please! This would be fantastic to broadcast re-runs of live programming, or to be able to play uninterrupted sets from live recordings

It would be awesome to be able to provide Details in the Banner when a DJ does a LIVE set. That would really take Live365 to the next level.
I agree, it only makes sense to have the ability to air pre-recorded music programs.
Really do need this.

Would like to be able to do record mixes and upload them and be in compliance

I would love to see is live 365 allow broadcasters to air syndicated programming I would love to see a feature where you could submit the music lists from syndicated programs for music royalties.
This is still a very in demand feature and with the thread being over 2 years old there has been ample time to test solutions.
Perhaps as I write this you are having success! I play out (and pay out) my shows in real time and then archive them into 1 hour mp3's for distribution. Cue sheets as text files are provided by my archiving software. PLEASE IMPLEMENT!
It would also benefit podcasters who would like to remain compliant making your service VERY ATTRACTIVE to that growing market.
Please do a feature to allow station owners to carry syndicated Programs on there stations and please provide a way for stations to submit song lists from the shows and also consider adding a way for the stream to automatically detect songs on a syndicated show if it is carried live adding this option will be a Huge welcome to stations who relay on syndicated shows for there station and will bring you new customers
Yes please implement this along with syndicated shows
As it is now I separate the music in a prerecorded syndicated show in to separately metatagged mp3s. I find a point in the host's talk break to separate them, then just put them in the right order. This gives the appearance, for one, that the host's music is being played live in the studio, showing up as now and recently played tunes by artist and song.
This feature alone has prevented me from growing my station in the direction that I plan.
I am really enjoying having Live 365 host my station but this feature would push it over the top and really allow me to grow exponentially! I can't wait for the update to be pushed! 2021 is the year!
Yes, this is important. From a club DJ's point of view, DJs produce mixes which are treated as a whole body of work, that currently there is no way to play on Live365 legally, it seems. You should look at how Mixcloud does it, and incorporate this into your platform. Have another "category" of content type, called "DJ Mix", where the user uploads a completed mix, and also a play sheet. Even better, fingerprint the files yourselves automatically, as YouTube does.
Yes please this will help me with my various programs much needed

This is needed for sure

Is there a progress report on this feature? It's a really important add on to this platform
This is imperative to the many stations on the platform. Please implement A.S.A.P.

I ordered this service with the hope that I could syndicate my show to other platforms. I hope this is a feature you are adding in the quick future.
I think the new syndicated show feature where you upload a Music log for each show to the server I think it should also work while you broadcast it live from your own automation software
This should be done with a Cue file in the international standard cue file format: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cue_sheet_(computing). You would upload the cue file and then select the audio file it refers to.
This file format is widely used in the industry and many playout systems already support it. If it was also available on the Live365 playout system this would represent a major advantage for many users.

"Need to Syndicate my show" (suggested by Cora Reid on 2021-06-13), including upvotes (1) and comments (0), was merged into this suggestion.
We need this feature. It is labor-intensive to create cue sheets and other methods are even worse. We just joined Live365 and now we have to drop our syndicated shows that we were carrying our weekend with.
