Basics of Using the Internal Player
This document describes how to use the built-in internal audio player in the Omnia.9 or Omnia.9SG.
Omnia.9 provides the ability to upload audio files to its built-in SSD drive for automatic playback upon the detection of silence.
Setting UP Internal Playback
The setup is done from the Input x / Source Audio / Internal Playback menu.
Upload your MP2, MP3, FLAC, or WAV (PCM only) files to the internal SSD drive by connecting to Omnia.9’s built-in FTP server on port 7321. The default user name is either anonymous or “Omnia”. There is no password, as access is controlled by the HTTP Access White List (found in the System > System Configuration > HTTP Access menu).
Each root folder will be directly available in the Folder drop-down menu and will automatically receive a “Station IDs” folder where you can place station IDs or jingles.
"Play" will manually start the internal player immediately and is used for testing.
The Previous and Next buttons allow you to play the next or last song, respectively.
The Mode Selector dropdown menu has several options for file playback. “Randomize Folder” will select and play songs at random guaranteeing not to repeat a song within twenty songs (provided you have more than 20 songs in the folder. It will play continuously. “File” simply plays one cut until it is over and then stops. “Folder” plays the entire contents of the folder and stops. “Repeat File” and “Repeat Folder” allow you to repeat either a single cut or an individual folder respectively.
To enable the auto internal playback, select it to start after 5, 10, 15, 30 or 60 seconds of silence:
To disable it, select "Disabled".
