RadioBOSS keeps a log of tracks that have been played. Moreover, the program can save the title of a track which is currently being played to a file and upload this file to a specified FTP server. The program can also use HTTP request to submit parameters of a current track to a specified URL address. The parameters include artist, title, duration, genre, album and other information. It can also send notifications of various events, such as errors, to an e-mail address.
To set up log file settings, follow these steps:
1. On the top menu bar, select Settings > Options...
2. Click Reports.
By default, the reporting feature is enabled. You can set the program to include a track number into a report and change the folder to save reports.
You can set the program to save the title of a track which is being played to a file (nowplaying.txt) and upload it to an FTP server. Track name is saved to the file in the format specified in View – Title format.
RadioBOSS can convert characters for the nowplaying file based on the rules defined in the textconversion.txt file. The file must be placed in the settings folder (to open it, use the Settings->Open Settings Folder menu command), there is an example file named textconversion-example.txt with example rules.
Include Next Track info - if enabled, the nowplaying.txt file will contain the next track information as well.
Nowplaying file contents can created based on a template (select the Template option in the nowplaying file type). The template file is located in the settings folder (to open it, in the menu click Settings->Open Settings folder) in the Templates subfolder, nowplaying.txt.
The Save artwork turns on artwork export. The artwork will be saved as a PNG image and resized to be at most 400 pixels in size. If a track does not have artwork embedded, no cover art will be saved. If you want to specify cover art image for tracks with no artwork, place the nocover.png file to the settings folder (to open the folder, use the Settings->Open Settings Folder menu command).
