Modstream reset countdown

Post by doobeedoo »

Hi Bernd

Our direct link between studio and transmitter has broken down. It can't be fixed this week. For the moment our backup computer at the transmitter site is playing our webstream via modstream. So normal programs are on air ;)

The maximum time for a modstream in proppfrexx is 24 hours. We've tried to use MODSTREAM_WATCHER_UPDATE to reset the countdown of that modstream. This doesn't seem to work?

Is there a way to keep the modstream going for more than 24 hours?

Kind regards

Bernard

No, currently that’s a limit, as the ModStream plays only for a certain amount of time. I could extend that in the next version, but until then you hopefully are back to normal business.
But you can of course stop the ModStream for a short Jingle for example- eg. Play one track of your emergency playlist amd then start the ModStream again.
E.g. play the ModStream feom 00:00:00 til 23:59:00 - Jingle and then repeat…
