What you need to know about Automagic Archiving!

At long last, automagic audio archiving is now happening at KBOO!

What you need to know:

As of 11/22/12, Automagic Archiving is offline

  • You can no longer wait til the very last minute to create a Schedule Episode. If you want to have a detailed human-made Schedule Episode, you need to create and post it at least 12 hours before your show.
    • Why? Because the Automagic system auto-creates Schedule Episodes anywhere between 6-12 hours in advance of your program.
    • Why? Because the Automagic recording needs a Schedule Episode to attach to.
    • Here's what the Automagic SEs look like, and worse yet, you can't edit them because you didn't create it.
    • Bonus: if you create your own Schedule Episode, you can easily edit text, photos, links ... and audio. 
  • Looking for your Schedule Episode & Automagic Audio?  
    • Within 6-8 hours of showtime, your best bet is to look at today's schedule page;
    • after 8 hours, check your program page on the default tab, Episodes Archive.
  • TBAs don't auto-generate Schedule Episodes
    • and thus, do not record.
    • If you want to share your (TBA'd) program with the world, you need to create a schedule episode.
    • schedule episodes need to be created at least 12 hours before the show. You can create one with no description.
    • If we don't schedule an episode and promote it somehow on social media, the only people who may hear it are the core of regular radio listeners. If you schedule an episode, people can hear it for up to two weeks.
  • Why does the program page open to Episodes Archive rather than Audio?
    • Because that's where the newest audio should be. In the future, all of the audio will probably be together -- but for the time being, it's not that way.
  • Programmers can download their audio by going to the Schedule Episode page while logged in,  and right clicking (or Mac users, Option- or Control- clicking), selecting Save Link (or Target) As.
  • Public Affairs, News, and Spoken Word programming needs to be very careful with the use of royalty music that we don't have releases for
    • please use 40 seconds or less of royalty music or be willing to edit it out of your show within 14 days of posting.
  • Public Affairs Programmers are welcome to download, edit, and reupload their audio.
    • For the time being, this will be a hell of a lot easier if you have created your own Schedule Episode
  • Listeners can't download Public Affairs programming currently (it's a bug - sorry - it's high priority to be fixed)
  • Music Programming is recorded in 5 hour chunks, starting at the beginning of your show, and will be live for 14 days -- then it will be deleted. Listeners can stream it, but not download it.
    • This is all thanks to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).

Have more questions, concerns, freak-outs? Please read the other Automagica documents, and if you don't have an answer, then contact VJ. But please read the documents first.
