That just means you havent imported any announcement files yet.  There are three announcement options available for your players... text to speech - where the computer announces, recorded - where you just record into the device microphone, or imported file - where you open an email attached announcement file that somebody records for you.

You can find out if you have the latest by searching in the app store for "walkout song dj" and then checking the results.  If it gives you an update button, then you can update, if the button is open, then you have the latest.

Could you tell me a bit about what issue you are having?

Another option for music files for Android users is a website called Amoyshare.com

They have a free online search and download of songs from youtube and other sources.  It does work with the chrome browser on your Android device and downloads the songs right to your download folder. That adds them to the Android Media manager so Walkout Songs can find them without requiring import.

I have a beta fix prepared for this issue.  Please reply on this thread if you are having this issue and would like to try the beta.

During initial experiments...  it appears this issue only occurs with my iOS 11.3 device and not one with iOS 11.2.6.   Can you confirm you have iOS 11.3 on the device that is having the announcement issues?   I assume that is probably the case since you mentioned everything was working fine until last weekend.   Did that timing correspond with update to iOS 11.3?

22
Yes, I understand the use case now.  And that was generally the use case for the pregame page...   Situation was more for home run, strike out, foul ball, walk, anthem, mound conference sort of thing.

I am planning an addition shortly to add grouping to the situation, pregame, and between inning page.  Same as the team selector on the walkout page.   That way you could make a pregame group with the song combinations you want and just start it with the first song on that group page.

Does that sound like it would work for you?

23
The situation and inning break sections are designed to be single play items.   The only way to play from one song to the next is to put them in the pregame page.

Can you describe the use case for why you want to play multiple songs in sequence in the inning break or situation scenario?   I have recently had one other request for this functionality so I am trying to understand the use cases I have missed and how best to address this feature request in the future.

I have found a couple bluetooth speakers that are having issues with the audio session and volume manipulation that must be done to play Apple music songs.  I just ordered and have received an ecoxgear ecoboulder that a user reported having issues with.  I tested it and did indeed see the problem.  I will be working on a solution starting tomorrow, but there is a chance it can't be resolved.

As a workaround, I would recommend just using a long aux cable to connect to the speaker.  The problem does not occur if you eliminate the bluetooth.  You can also just purchase the individual songs from iTunes and avoid using Apple Music subscription songs.  Apple requires me to do some very hokey workarounds to play the apple music songs.  With purchased song files, the volume fade is done using raw audio samples so there are no issues with bluetooth speakers.

There isn't a way yet, but it is on my roadmap list.  I expect to add that some time this summer.  Thanks for the request.. that does help the motivation to keep the app fresh!

26
Well, I guess my testing coverage needs some work... I will try some text magification here on my test devices and see if I can't get that fixed for my next update.  Thanks for the report!

27
Is this Apple or Android?  What is the device model?  Do you have the font magnified to make text easier to read?

First verify that you have the latest version of the App.  The Apple Music support had some problems in the first couple versions and then iOS 11.3 added some bugs in the Apple system player which required work arounds.

If you are still having issues,  could you tell me if you are doing the announcements before or after the walkout song?  Could you also tell me the brand of bluetooth speaker you are using?

With that info, I could do some tests here to see if I can duplicate the issue and find a fix or workaround...

If you wish to just avoid any possible problems, I would recommend avoiding using Apple Music song sources for the walkout songs with announcements.   Apple forces me to use and manipulate the system player and system volume for playing and fading Apple Music songs.  It works pretty well when directly wired, but there are some bluetooth speakers that do not handle the volume change very well.

If you instead use purchased songs for the walkouts, then the app can manipulate the raw audio samples to do the fading and avoid any manipulation of the system volume.

Excellent list! That is pretty much what I was thinking of for my dropdown column.  It is on the short list of update features so look for it when the season winds down some and I don't risk breaking the app during prime season.
