Airtime 2 for Broadcasters

Add media

If you do not have direct access to the Airtime server, you can add files to the Airtime storage and database using the Add media page of the administration interface. This page includes an upload queue for media files, which supports drag and drop from your computer's file manager if you are using the Mozilla Firefox 3.6 (or later) web browser.

On an Ubuntu Lucid desktop machine, Firefox supports uploading files to Airtime of up to 200MB in size. Other browsers and platforms may set an upload limit at 2GB. If you need to upload files larger than 200MB to the Airtime server, you may find it more convenient to perform the upload using SFTP, rather than through the browser. See the chapter Automated file import for more details.

The Add Media page is not visible to Guest users.

If your web browser does not support drag and drop, you can use the Add files button, which has a white plus sign in a green circle icon, to open a file selection window on your computer.

After you have added all the files that you require to the upload queue, click the Start upload button, which has a green arrow icon.

The row of the file currently being uploaded is highlighted in pale green. At the bottom of the upload queue, a progress bar and percentage indicates how much of the upload has taken place so far.

Once it has been uploaded successfully, each file row displays a white check mark in a green circle icon.


Your files are now imported into the Airtime storage and database, ready to be included in your broadcast playlist.
