I am looking for some software to realize a 24 hour music server.
This is the situation:
I have a large collection of Classical Indian Music Ragas which are supposed to be played only at certain time slots of the day (or night) to unfold theirs full effect.
These are three hour time slots.
So I have lets say a dozen Ragas in MP3 or OGG or Flac format, which go in a certain time slot.
Now I would like to fire up a program and which then automatically starts playing the correct ragas for the time of the day without any additional intervention.
Is that time over (let's say it's one o'clock) I want it to automatically go to the next playlist with the corresponding ragas for the next time slot from one to four o'clock and so on.
If I could have some more features, like have the pc go into hibernation at a preset time or when playing stops, even better.
Also some way to play random ragas from that playlist for the corresponding time would be great.
I have helped myself with batch files, which pass to Winamp the filenames of the ragas and at the same time start psshutdown to put the computer into hibernation when the playing has ended. But of course I had to manually start the batch file and was not able to switch to the new playlist when the next time period has started.
Would anybody have any idea?
I have read with interest your posts about jukeboxes, and thouhgt maybe somebody knows of a proggie that can do that.
Thanks for your help.
