A folder with some of the wma files which our DJ's use to create playlists is http://www.tligradio.org/wmafiles/English/messages/Sebastian/ Up to date our DJ's must download all wma files to their computers and then create playlists. However, this approach is proved to be a cumbersome procedure because we very often change/update the existing wma files plus adding new ones. Since we use Juke for creating the playlists we thought it would be convinient to if our DJ's could directly drag files from our web folder/s into the Juke playlist.
Any help or suggestion to above situation is appreciated.
Ask your web server administrator to set up a WebDAV directory for you. You mount this WebDAV directory in Windows XP using "My Network Places/Add a network place", for example http://www.tligradio.org/webdav/. Then you can access this directory like a Windows share \\www.tligradio.org\webdav. You can drag files and sub directories of this folder from Windows Explorer into the Juke playlist.
Actually, I've tested it with a WebDAV Folder and it worked fine for me (using Windows XP). Can you provide me access to a WebDAV Folder that does not work for you?
FTP is not really an option, because FTP file names are not supported by the Windows codecs. I think that's because it is not possible to stream from an FTP source. You would have to download the files and then pay them locally.
1) What do you mean by "send it to Juke"? 2+3) The Explorer context menu has 2 entries for Juke. The command "Play with Juke" will replace any current playlist with the selected files or folders. The command "Add to Juke playlist" will append the selected files and folders to the current playlist.
You can also add files and folders by drag and drop into the Juke playlist window. But if you drag a folder onto the Juke title bar, then the folder is treated as a playlist that replaces the currently active playlist.
we would be happy to provide you access to a WebDAV directory so that can you try to create a playlist with Juke. Because the only account we can use for directories with WebDAV connections is the root one please provide us with an email address to send it to you.
>1) What do you mean by "send it to Juke"?
1) to drag a file and drop it into Juke palylist is impossible. The only way to add a file into Juke playlist is to right click on the file -> Sent To -> Juke. Alos, the new file will replacea ny existing file in the playlist, therefore we could not have more than one files in the playlist.
Anyway, since you have tested it and it worked without any problem i guess we are doing something wrong or our webdav connection does not work well.
