your song files
Before you begin a broadcast, your song files (MP3s, .wavs,
etc.) should be arranged into directories that can be easily
accessed by you. If you intend to insert a song from CDs into
your Playlist, have a CD in your primary CD-ROM drive with others
waiting close by. Using the line-in feature
with a mic will allow you to intro songs or chat while you smoothly
files to your Playlist
The Playlist is a list of songs that are ready to be accessed

of adding files to the playlist. You can add individual files
by clicking the Add File button. You can add the entire contents
of a folder of audio files by clicking on the Add Folder button.

folders or playlists onto the black portion of the Playlist
Creating a series of different Playlists will allow you to easily
and conveniently keep your content fresh. The Playlist saving
and sorting functionality will be built out in future versions
of the software. Because the RadioDestiny Broadcaster will play
playlists from the Destiny
Media Player and other third party players such as Winamp
(.lst, .m3u), we recommend using your favourite mp3 player to
do your playlist editing. For example, the Destiny Media Player
includes the extra functionality of including sub-directories
when a folder/directory is added. The Destiny Media Player also
has expanded sorting and randomizing features.

After spending many minutes (or hours!) creating a playlist

location so that you know where to load it from later. Use descriptive
names for your list to easily distinguish from other lists.

It's important to know that a Playlist does not include the
songs themselves. A Playlist is a set of pointers to the files.
If you create a Playlist and then move the songs from their
original locations, the Playlist will not know where to find
them and will skip any moved/deleted files.
