DYNAMIC PLAYLIST - MIX

Create Mix HomeDJ feature Create Mix is similar to what is also known as Dynamic Playlist, or Radio station. HomeDJ is using MusicIP as an engine for generation of mixes.

MusicIP is much more than a conventional Playlist Generator. MusicIP is a clever piece of software written in the 2000s that analyses and fingerprints your music library to try to understand the makeup of each music track. So instead of endlessly scrolling through your library, trying to find something to listen to, you can simply select a track (the seed track) then based on MusicIPs understanding of your library, generate a playlist of tracks that blend together. This is far more than a genre based mix, as it will select tracks that are similar in composition.

To create MIX you can pick any of the Genre, Artist, Album, Song, or even Folder. Just simply select "Create Mix" menu from popup menus, or click the button anywhere you see it while browsing your library on your Android device.

It will show you dialog for MIX creation like you see on the left. While dialog is shown, it will give you an option to pick any out of 50 randomly selected songs in addition to a song you picked to create mix for. You can scroll through these songs by just sliding artwork left or right.

In addition to this you will hear a 30 seconds song preview.

Create mix dialog can be controlled via Bluetooth devices, which have Play/Pause/Next/Prev controls.

OUTBOUND CONNECTION ONLY

It is common practice by most Internet Service Providers to ban consumers to run any servers using their Home Internet connection. They prevent any Inbound connection from Internet into Consumer home PC or in some cases can shut service down or issue a fine.

HomeDJ does not require Inbound connection and can work without any TCP port opened for Inbound. All communications are done using only Outbound connection, therefore HomeDJ will not violate ISP policy for not running any servers and does not require any ports to be forwarded (opened) in your router/firewall.

But HomeDJ still provides ability for users, who allowed and want to use Inbound connection and connect directly from Android device to their home computer.

If you want to open a TCP port (in case if HomeDJ failed to configure your router using UPnP protocol) you can reference http://portforward.com/ for more information about your router and how to configure port forwarding manually.
