Player Tutorials

Getting Started

Learn the basics so you can start playing music and manipulate the playlist in your venue.

Infotainment Tutorial

Video Text

Learn how to set up a text scroll to play in your venue to promote specials, announce birthdays or other special events going on that day, or even provide a news feed.

Song Ratings

Find out the differences between songs or music videos rated "All", "PG", or "Adult".

Playlist Builder

Want to make your own playlists and programs? This is your starting point.

Simple Scheduling

Automate your player's entire day, from program changes to infotainment promotions, as well as video text and even volume changes.

Categorized Library

While other services just dump songs into their library and let you worry about where they should go, we don't think you want to spend a lot of time with that. This video looks at the work our team puts into adding each song.

Pre-Made Content

Some information about the pre-made content ("Infotainment") available in the player, and details on how you can get your own custom content created.

Unparalleled Control

Are staff playing the wrong music channels at the wrong time? Learn how to lock down your player with passwords so no one can make changes unless you want them to.

Infotainment Uploader

If you've got an in-house graphic designer or media specialist, we can show you how you can add your own advertisements to the player!
