RUN YOUR F2K LIKE RADIO STATION

Fist of all i wanna give big thank to Peter Pavlovsky, to Matt Witherspoon, to Wiesl, to Holger Stenger, to Andrew Smolko, to Case, to Christian Fersch, to Michael Pujos (aka bubbleguuum)

After two sleepless nights and and couple of days of testing F2K i find the way how i can run F2k like radio station.
But before run F2K like radio station i must solve a couple problems with F2K:

1. Shuffle tracks with no repeating.
2. Creating playlists with same length.
3. Kill and eliminate the gaps.
4. Pick two random songs from same playlist and jump to another playlist
5. Skip empty playlist.
6. Set same volume for tracks.
______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

1.  I configured foo_scheduler and add foo.removeplayed plugin.
2. I configured foo_binpack plugin
3. I configured foo_dsp_continuator for eliminate and kill gaps and for smooth transition between two tracks and for smooth transition before change playlist.
4+5. I configure foo_scheduler (with foo binpack) - create playlists with same length - but last one must contains less songs  - so then
when last playlist is empty foo scheduler command to foobar go to first playlist and start to play first playlist and continue on next one and on and on until first playlist is empty or almost empty.
6. I added foo_replaygain plugin.

 See the screenshots before you run F2K as radio station.
Then i attach my F2k setup that is original F2k verse 1.4.8 with plugins and my configuration -UNZIP MY FOOBAR200 UPNP -  ITS F2K PORTABLE  -SO JUST RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR!

And i  also attach here plugins + cfg files only if you like try me setup on your F2K - UNZIP F2K CFG.7z
1. Copy my folder USER COMPONENTS TO YOUR FOLDER USER COMPONENTS
2. Copy my folder Configuration TO YOUR FOLDER CONFIGURATION

Setup:

DSP manager - Activate :
Replaygain - dont change
Resampler (SOX) - set to 48000 HZ (enhance the sound)
Noise Sharpening - set to + 25% (enhance the sound)
Continuator - dont change

Playback - Output - set to 19750 ms

Advanced - Playback - Shuffle - Reshuffle on manual track selection is unchecked - OK - APPLY

Just notice that Foo removeplayed  NOT REMOVE PLAYED TRACKS if you  create autoplaylists by library.
So solution is - to configure foo_skip (foo_playcount is included in user components folder)

if you have sound glitches or interruption - uncheck in foo dsp continuator - EMPTY BUFFER UP TO OVERLAP POINT ON TRACK CHANGE.
This can happened only when you broadcast music. It can happened to your listener.
See the screenshot.

A new setup.
Run as administrator!

Changes: Pick randomly only one track playlist and jumping to next playlist and do same job and looping back from last playlist to first playlist.
And looping on and on until last track is played and then stop playing.

Just saw your PM. I think you may do 2. 4. & 5. using Pools from Playlist Tools (see sig).
This topic had a similar problem

Instead of jumping between playlists, you may simply create a playlist mixing tracks from other playlists (my latest reply has an example) and just play from that. The track size is configurable (not the length), but sure you can cut to desired length with another plugin. The output for the final playlist can be sorted randomly too, so there is no need for additional random playback settings.

If you also use the Playlist manager, you may have dozen of playlists files to use for mixing as pools without cluttering the UI. Mix that with Autoplaylists and the sky is the limit.

As far as I have understand what you want to do, this may be a better approach (more simple and stable)... since every time you start a new radio session, you can simply create a new playlist with all tracks that will be played in a few clicks automatically. You can even filter the playlist to allow only 1 track per artist or things like that. Obviously this method has the "problem" of being limited to a set playlist size.... but as far as I understand it, you have the same problem with the current one unless you have infinite tracks. Repeating playback at playlist's end "fixes"  that.

You may also use the macros feature to jump/select and do other things.... which would allow some more things than those found on the scheduler (on playlists context). But those are not executed according to some condition but on demand.

This is a resume, let me know if you need more tips. In any case you would have to test it in situ to be sure it works as you want.
