- Local database
- A local database is used to handle all tracks.
- Define one more (as many as you like) paths.
- Scan the defined paths for files using advanced search schemes - Allowing you to search more efficiently for folders-differential, files-differential or do a complete scan. Automatically removes non-existing files from the database (one-way synchronization).
- Ultra fast file information access. - The file is accessed physically (as a regular player),
but the file information is collected once, when you scan the media paths.
- Party Mode
- In this mode, the player works "kind-a" like a normal CD-Player. The user(s) can't seek, or skip tracks etc.
- In this mode, the build-in play list ([Party Mode] ) is used, and user(s) can only add to the list, and only in sequential order (new files goes last).
- In this mode, play time and ETA is calculated for all tracks on the play list. Making it easy for user(s) to see what their track in particular is played.
- In this mode, a playing track is automatically removed from the list, when it has finished playing.
- This mode is password protected - even an application re-start will not modify the player state.
- This function is made quite powerful. When ever you search, you search the internal database for optimum speed. Search within 1'000'000s of tracks within milliseconds.
- This function uses an enhanced scheme to search, meaning the search algorithm searches within filename, path and all ID3 tag's inside the file.
- Play Lists
- You can add as many play lists as you like (just as in a regular media player), but these lists can be more dynamically build, using search options, and the opportunity to add several files at once or even a complete folder.
- You can copy tracks from one play list to another, just by right-clicking on the selected tracks.
- You can copy any physical file by right-clicking, to any preferred folder. - This makes it very easy to copy files for specific needs from the juke box to any location in your file system. The files will even be auto-renamed if you have selected several files, with same name.
- Radio Mode
- Build you own radio channel - well, it's not really a radio, but that's what I prefer to call it.
When you create your own radio channel in Universal JukeBox, you simple define a set of criteria's to follow when Universal JukeBox looks up the next track to play in your radio.
These criteria's can be +words -words, year and year-range's and genres. - It's really an easy task to create a new radio.
When listening to your radio, Universal JukeBox will continue playing all tracks that fulfill your criteria's.
- When ever a track is played, it will be recorded into a log. This log can be used to generate several kind of lists. Top-100, Top-10, most played tracks, genres, etc. - Cool after a party - you can see what people searched the most for, and which tracks was played more than once, and and and and......
