Adding Media to a Playlist
In this section, we explain how to add your media to a basic playlist to be broadcasted on your station. While Centova Cast supports a variety of advanced scheduling options, for the purpose of this basic guide we will simply use a basic, sample playlist that plays all tracks in random order.
To add your media to a playlist for broadcasting:
In the navigation panel at the left-hand side of the screen, click
Mediaunder the AutoDJ heading. The Media Library interface should appear, and you should see the artists of the tracks you uploaded in the center pane.
Click on one of your artists and, while still holding down the mouse button, drag it into the Standard Rotation playlist on the left-hand side of the page. This will add all tracks by the selected artist to the playlist.
If you prefer to add individual tracks instead of entire artists, you may optionally click on the artist, then click on one of the artist's albums, and then drag the individual tracks into the Standard Rotation playlist instead.
Repeat step 2 and/or 3 for each of your artists, albums, and/or tracks. Note that you can also hold the
Ctrlkey while clicking the artists, albums, or tracks to select more than one at once, and then drag them all at the same time.
When you have finished adding media to the playlist, click the
Return button at the bottom of the page.
Note that when adding media to a playlist, the changes are saved automatically and instantly as soon as you drop the tracks into the playlist, so no further saving is necessary.
