- Initial Setup Wizard:
If you are new to LiveWebDJ, you will want to start here. This wizard will analyze your account and take you through a 4 step process to get started using LiveWebDJ the easy way.
- Your Station Details:
This is where you set your station's name, website address, genre and public setting. Marking your station public will allow it to be listed in the Shoutcast.com directory. This functionality is handled by your streaming software itself, and this setting tells your streaming software that you would like your stream included in the directory.
- Output Encoders:
This is where you specify the settings for each streaming server you would like LiveWebDJ to broadcast to. You will want to choose a reputable stream hosting provider, such as [iCastCenter.com]. LiveWebDJ can broadcast to multiple streaming servers in different formats and bitrates, simultaneously.
- Output Encoder Alert Settings:
By default, LiveWebDJ will notify you via e-mail whenever an output encoder fails, using the address you signed up with. This is useful for finding out when your stream goes down. Typically, the remote stream will go down when your stream host provider is experiencing downtime. You may disable this feature here. Lastly, you may add additional e-mail addresses that you wish to also be notified.
- Volume Normalization:
You can keep your station sounding professional by making sure the volume output of your station is balanced. Here you can fine tune the volume normalization level of specific areas of the system. Please note that setting the volume normalization level too high can cause clipping and distortion.
- Separation Rules:
These features make sure that a specific artist name or song title is not repeated for at least a specific amount of time. You'll want to make sure that you aren't too restrictive in these settings.
- Crossfade Settings:
You can set the crossfade time and the crossfade threshold. Crossfading helps eliminate gaps between songs that air, by fading out the current track that is ending, and fading into the next track to be played. A crossfade threshold is the minimum duration a track must be to perform crossfading. Useful for making sure station ID's, promos and commercials are not faded in and out.
- Accessibility Settings:
If you are visually impaired and use screen reading software or if you would rather not use the drag and drop operations of the LiveWebDJ interface, you may enable the 'Global Accessibility' feature. When you have the 'Global Accessibility setting disabled, you have the option to enable the accessibility setting for the 'Media & Playlists' section only. This is helpful when you have a large media collection, as loading this section can get to be very slow as you grow your media collection.
- Twitter Integration:
Would you like LiveWebDJ to tweet the name of every song and include a link to your station's website to your Twitter account?
Search this help portal for 'Twitter Integration'.
- TuneIn API Integration:
Would you like LiveWebDJ to automatically keep TuneIn synchronized with your station's current song title? Do you want TuneIn to display album covers for listeners on the TuneIn website and mobile apps?
Search this help portal for 'TuneIn API Integration'
- Upgrade Options:
LiveWebDJ includes 20GB of storage space and 1 output encoder by default. You can upgrade your storage space and add additional output encoders here.
- Error & Notification Message Log:
This error and notification log is limited to displaying up to 5 days worth of logs and may be further limited by up to the last 5 restarts of your LiveWebDJ station. However, it will provide you with clues if you are having problems getting LiveWebDJ to stream to one of your streaming servers, or if you are having problems connecting a DJ Access account with your LiveWebDJ station.
