General Discussion / Walkout Song DJ on a Windows laptop
« on: April 14, 2022, 10:31:11 pm »
For anyone interested in running Walkout Song DJ on a Windows laptop...  there is an excellent free Android emulator called Bluestacks that runs very well on recent laptops.  I have been able to install Bluestacks, Walkout Song DJ, and the Simple Song Collector.  Full screen, it makes a pretty sweet combo if you are tired of trying to use a tiny phone screen.

Bluestacks will also run on an intel based mac laptop if you have one of those around.

Issue Reporting / Slow download speed
« on: April 07, 2022, 11:07:16 am »
I have noticed recently that the Song Collector is pretty slow downloading audio tracks. 

I tracked the problem down to a recent change in YouTube that is throttling download speed to just a little faster than you would need to maintain a live stream of the material.  I have a new approach in development to download the material in multiple simultaneous smaller chunks and it seems to work well.  Stay tuned for a new release with that improvement in the next week or so.

I wrote a very simple open source Android app to gather walkout songs from YouTube called 'Simple Song Collector'
You can download it from here:

https://github.com/UpAllNite-Software/simple-song-collector/releases/download/beta-1.0.10/ssc-beta-1.0.10.apk
(may need to long tap and select download link on newer Android devices)

You may need to change your Android settings when prompted to allow sideload installation from your browser and override safety warnings, but there are no ads, tracking, or malware included so it is safe to do so.

Just enter title and artist in the search, pick the best match, tap the download button and it will add the song to your android files and Walkout Songs DJ will be able to see and use them in the 'My Music' selector.  If you need to browse for the song files, they will be in the "Downloads/SimpleSongFinder" folder of your Android file manager.  The Simple Song Finder also provides a choice of music or video search from the three dot button in the upper right.  Some songs seem to only be available in the video category.

Issue Reporting / Apple Music and Text to Speech overlap with iOS 13
« on: October 01, 2019, 10:41:12 am »
Apple did a bit of a butcher job with the overlapping of text to speech with the Apple Music player in iOS 13 and it is still broken in all the patches up to 13.1.2.  As a workaround until they figure it out... you can:

- try different voices (the behavior is different with each).
- try to either completely overlap the song and announcement or keep them from overlapping at all (one starting while the other is playing is the broken piece)
- purchase the specific songs you use for walk ups. (Non-Apple music songs do not use the problem player)
- use an alternate Apple device on iOS 12 or earlier.

Issue Reporting / IOS 13 problems
« on: September 13, 2019, 08:54:12 pm »
With iOS 13 due out in a couple weeks, I started testing compatibility with Walkout Songs.  The tests did not go well so far with the most glaring issues being a black screen when trying to chose songs from the iTunes library and an app hang when the app is closed and reopened after playing a song. 

Some of the issues go away when tested against iOS 13.1 which is due for release 11 days after 13 so I'm pretty sure Apple knows there were some glaring issues with 13 and I would suggest waiting for 13.1 and a new update from me to clean up the compatibility problems I can fix.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions / Amoyshare getting tricky
« on: April 04, 2019, 08:19:59 am »
The free video converter at Amoyshare that a lot of Android folks use has changed the interface just a bit to trick more people into buying their pro version...

But if you tap the double down arrow below the listed pro versions, it slides to reveal that they still have the 128k mp3 version for free download.  I attached a picture of the button you need to tap.

There are a few bluetooth speakers that don't get along well with iOS 12 and mixed audio sources.  I expect this will be fixed in iOS 13, but in the meantime you will probably just need to use a long aux cord to your speaker rather than bluetooth.

Release Notes / New beta version 2.5.11 for iOS devices
« on: March 19, 2019, 06:18:46 am »
There is a new beta version 2.5.11 of Walkout Song DJ for Apple devices available today 3/19/19.

The primary feature of the beta is support for mixing Apple Music songs with announcements. For Apple music subscription songs, the playback interface from Apple is very limited and required a more complex approach.  I think I have most of the kinks worked out on that and a beta is finally ready.  Message me your email address here or on facebook if you would like to participate. 

The only known issue with the mixing feature beta is some muting of the announcement on a small number of bluetooth devices combined with iOS 12.  The feature is not workable with those devices unless you use a long aux cable rather than bluetooth.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions / Apple Music file not found error
« on: March 18, 2019, 10:00:32 pm »
To those using the iOS version with Apple Music and getting file not found errors shortly after adding a song to Walkout Songs...  there was a bug in the app that prevented location of Apple Music songs picked from playlists that were never added to the iTunes library individually.  This is now fixed in version 2.5.11 and released to the app store today 3/20/19.  I do use phased release with updates over 7 days, so you may need to search for the app in the appstore and manually get the update if you need it quicker.

Regarding the mixing option on Apple devices...  that was initially released only supporting purchased or imported songs.  For Apple music subscription songs, the playback interface from Apple is very limited and required a more complex approach.  I think I have most of the kinks worked out on that and support for mixing all song types was released today 3/20/19. I use phased release with updates over 7 days, so you may need to search for the app in the appstore and manually get the update if you need it quicker.


The only known issue with the mixing feature is muting of the announcement on a small number of bluetooth devices combined with iOS 12.  The feature is not workable with those devices unless you use a long aux cable rather than bluetooth.

Walkout Song DJ iOS version 2.5.3 is now available in the app store.  The only change is to fix the recorded announcement bug introduced in version 2.5.2.

Release Notes / iOS version 2.5.2 has bug in announcement recording
« on: January 02, 2019, 04:43:12 pm »
iOS version 2.5.2 that was just released from the app store today has a bug in the announcement recording that prevents you from playing back or using recorded announcements for your players. 

I have a fixed version 2.5.3 submitted to the app store that should be available as soon as Apple completes their review.
