Post Schedule a file for play at a specific time, stored elsewhere then moved into library.
Our station has started picking up shows.. it would be nice if there was a directory that shows could be stored in, until scheduled, in the bot, and then after playing at the specified time, the show is then moved into the main library folder.

This isn't built-in to the bot but it would be very easy to script. When you want it to play just:

Move file into the library folder
ibctl to relay the file, next (if needed), then reload to rescan the library folder.

I understand its easy to script.

Considering im not the one in our group who's dealing with these shows, i'd have to build something for the non admins..

Right now ive got them doing it manually from IRC..

So a scheduled function would make everyones lives easier.

Also (at least from irc) a !reload doesnt rescan the folder. I have to !restart to get it to rescan.

!reload only reloads your ircbot.text, !autodj-reload re-scans your music folder.

Post Re: Schedule a file for play at a specific time, stored else
Thank you for that tip, Indy..

Comment: Since there's already a !schedule function... Why not add another 4-6 variables that allows for what im asking? Just add the following to !schedule

currently a onetime show schedule add looks like !addschedule YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM HH:MM Show Description
What about adding a filename to that? Maybe a seperate command..

!add2schedprerec YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM HH:MM filename.ext "Show Description"

And add a configuration entry for "Scheduled shows location" to keep them seperate from the bot's autoplay
And another for "Move show to libraray after air"

I ask because this is still an issue for me and making seriously consider moving to airtime where its much more pointy and clicky for noobs.

That plugin isn't related to AutoDJ, it doesn't actually schedule anything it's just informational.

Specialized functions like that would be on your end and pretty easy to script as I outlined earlier.
