Hello All -


I'm trying to find the right software package to run on a PC that will basically turn that PC into an automated readio station.


The pc/software and hardware would store a large (8000+) .mp3 collection and play, via the sound card (not stream) in the following manner...


I want to create a playlist template (that would run in perpituity) very similar to a radio station format clock...for example


Play 2 Rock Songs

Then 1 Country

Then 2 Dance

Then 2 Rock

Then 2 Oldies

etc...


The system would continously randomize songs that are in each of the category directories..... and then play automatically


So you could turn the system on and forget about it....and basically have your own radio station playing songs in the rotation you want.



I have been searching for ever (and posted this question here before) with no luck....any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ever looked into ShoutCast?


It has a Server Peice that streams, but you could simply use WinAmp to play the stream. There is also a ShoutCast Manager to let you remotely control options.

Shoutcast is a streaming solution...I'm really trying to find an all in one software player and playlist generator and Shoutcast does neither.


It wouldn't hurt if it had a nice interface that I could modulate throughout the house.

I think music match has a DJ feature that you may be able to get it setup the way you describe.
