How Can I Schedule Backup Playlists or Emergency Content on AzuraCast?
Whether you are running a bustling online radio station or just need to fill in some inconvenient gaps in your live radio broadcast, AzuraCast can help. AzuraCast is an open source radio casting platform which allows you to schedule backup playlists and emergency content in case of any unexpected events or technical difficulties.
Using the AzuraCast Scheduler
AzuraCast’s built-in scheduler allows you to schedule your playlist in advance, no matter how long or short. You can schedule your regular daily playlists and also backup playlists in case of any unexpected incidents or technical difficulties. All you need to do is set an exact start time, an end time, and the content.
Creating Backup Playlists
When it comes to creating backup playlists, you will need to make sure that your main playlist has a backup playlist that will immediately start broadcasting should any unexpected event prevent you from broadcasting your original playlist. As an alternative, you can also set up a backup-specific playlist and use it as a failsafe should any problems arise during your broadcast.
Setting Up Emergency Content
If you require a more automated and immediate solution, you can set up emergency content that will start playing automatically when it senses a live interruption. For this, you can use the Automatic Emergency Audio Playback plugin, which can either be set to automatically switch to a specific playlist or broadcast a standalone audio file in case of any interruption.
With the tools mentioned above,AzuraCast users can easily schedule backup playlists or set up emergency content whenever they need it.
