Re: .rsd spreadsheet and URL validation

Some of the issues you will face have to do with how many parallell tests do do at once. Doing 30,000 streams one at a time and waiting 10 seconds for a stream to start will take 5,000 minutes (or 83,333 hours). Not very useful. That $25 tool does a nice job in about an hour or two for all 30,000 st...

Re: .rsd spreadsheet and URL validation

Awesome work, Jazzfan! This bulletin board allows you to attach screen shots as files. It would be great if you could share some screen shots once you have a detailed step by step that less technical people can use and help with the URL validations. I don't know a lot about Google Drive, but I belie...

Re: Please help: Automated Extraction and Validation of URLs for keeping RadioSure current

I hadn't tried Fonzy's method. What I had done was launch MS Excel and then do a FILE, Open and select the *.rsd file. Excel will prompt to convert the file and taking the default values for the conversion works. Then it will be open in Excel. I like to work on only the Source 1 column. Excel allow ...

Please help: Automated Extraction and Validation of URLs for keeping RadioSure current

I have found this program to be invaluable in keeping RadioSure sources current: https://www.excelurlvalidator.com/ There is a free trial version that works with a finite number of URLs (I don't recall whether it is 10 or 100 at a time) and for $25 USD, the full feature version will process the enti...

Re: Recording bug for m3u8 stream- recorded file is only 3k and does not play

Confirmed that it works! The setting is under the Options-Recording menu with a drop down list box for the Bitrate. The default had been Auto as you had described. There is really no need to record audio for humans at 128 kb or above. Most people will be surprised at how predictable their age is bas...

Re: Recording bug for m3u8 stream- recorded file is only 3k and does not play

Thank you, Fonzy!

I do not know how to change the bit rate from "automatic" to 128 kb for this stream. I need a command line switch as I have a task scheduled in the Windows "Task Scheduler" to record this stream.

Please advise.
Thank you!

Recording bug for m3u8 stream- recorded file is only 3k and does not play

Try recording stream http://rogers-hls.leanstream.co/rogers/gra977.stream/playlist.m3u8 (station CFGP 97.7 FM Grand Praire, AB) No matter how long the attempted recording, the output file size is 3k. Similar results with other Rogers stations in Canada such as CHDI 102.9 FM Edmonton, AB. RadioSure v...

Re: how can we prevent RS from overwriting our current database with 2017 data?

I spot checked a few of the 15000 stations I updated in 2018 and I am seeing the my updates now. They appear to be from the spreadsheet rather than from the database itself as the spreadsheet has fewer fields. (website is missing, for example). Many times, especially with smaller stations, the websi...

Re: how can we prevent RS from overwriting our current database with 2017 data?

Thank you, Fonzy. You're a great guy! I enjoyed working with you as I updated 1000-2000+ stations each month in 2018. I plan to use that database.. and occasionally download the newer stations list to incorporate only the 2019 changes. I too have tried to contact the RS email addresses that I have, ...

how can we prevent RS from overwriting our current database with 2017 data?

I paid for daily updates to the RS database - how can I disable them without losing the custom skins that I bought from Radiosure?
