BoomBox AutoDJ Update

The next phase for the changeover from the old ShoutCast AutoDJ to Liquidsoap has been released. Customers are encouraged to check and/or adjust their DJ and Playlist priority settings.

What’s Changed?

Liquidsoap uses a concept called clocks and in order to achieve a seamless changeover, we needed to adjust some database settings. Primarily the priority setting which works fundamentally different in Liquidsoap. A translator has been built which converts settings, but some DJ and Playlists may not fully translate. Therefore customers are encouraged to chack their priority settings and make adjustments as necessary.

How many more conversion phases are planned?

Currently just 2 more. All but two systems have been converted over to CentOS 7 which is required for Liquidsoap and are planned to be completed within the next two weeks. DJ and Playlist settings are already being saved simultaneously for the old ShoutCast transcoder and Liquidsoap. However, more behind the scenes testing and conversion is required before a final release.

AutoDJ Patch

We are happy to announce that we have released a patch that resolves reported issues with the AutoDJ.

BoomBox Patch 3.1.1 includes the following fixes:

  • Incorrect display of form values on some browsers
  • Saving of AutoDJ settings on some browsers
  • Adding and Deleting DJ’s
  • Adding and Deleting Playlists

The primary reason why some customers were having issues saving AutoDJ settings was due to undocumented changes in the JQuery library which would send only partial form data to the API. This forced BoomBox to fallback to default configuration settings resulting in some values not being recognized by the system.

Customers who had difficulties with the AutoDJ are encouraged login to BoomBox and try again. And please report any further issues immediately to the support@sonixcast.com team.
