Auto DJ Setup Tutorial

Upload your mp3s

First you will need to login to your control panel as provided in your welcome email.

In the navigation panel at the left-hand side of the screen, click Files under the AutoDJ heading.

Click the Upload button at the bottom of the page. The file upload dialog should appear.

Click the Select files button. A file browser dialog should open, allowing you to browse your home computer for the media files you want to upload.

Select the media file(s) you want to upload and click the Open button at the bottom of the dialog. Note that in most cases only MP3 audio files will be compatible with your autoDJ, although your hosting provider may advise you of other file types you may be able to use.

The upload should begin immediately. Wait for the upload to complete, and then optionally repeat steps 3-5 until you have uploaded all of the media files you want to use.

Click the Close button to close the file upload dialog.

Create A Playlist

Now you have uploaded your media it's time to create a playlist and your media.

In the navigation panel at the left-hand side of the screen, click Media under the AutoDJ heading. The Media Library interface should appear, and you should see the artists of the tracks you uploaded in the center pane.

Click on one of your artists and, while still holding down the mouse button, drag it into the Standard Rotation playlist on the left-hand side of the page. This will add all tracks by the selected artist to the playlist.

If you prefer to add individual tracks instead of entire artists, you may optionally click on the artist, then click on one of the artist's albums, and then drag the individual tracks into the Standard Rotation playlist instead.

Repeat step 2 and/or 3 for each of your artists, albums, and/or tracks. Note that you can also hold the Ctrl key while clicking the artists, albums, or tracks to select more than one at once, and then drag them all at the same time.
