Topic: Scheduled play/stop/load playlist.
Hi.

Is there any way to play/stop/load playlist in a virtual DJ on desired time for specific days? I see there was an addon called SBDJ Scheduler, but for version 6.

Thank you

I could execute and terminate the VirtualDJ process (Vitrualdj8.exe) using a task scheduler, but the I would need to load automix and start playback on load.

Any ideas?

Thank you

VirtualDJ is software for playing out live in general.

You are probably better to look at some sort of radio automation software in this instance.

It is possible to write a plugin that sends a vdjscript command to vdj at specific times.
The command to use is playlist_load, which you can add the name of your playlist to.

Solved.

NirCMD.exe will send shortcuts (or mouse clicks) for AUTOMIX toggle, triggered by Windows Task Scheduler.

Simple :)

Example of the batch file:

REM ----- RUN VIRUTAL DJ
start "VirtualDJ" "c:\Program Files (x86)\VirtualDJ\virtualdj8.exe"

REM ----- WAIT FOTR THE APP TO LOAD
Timeout 5

REM ----- ACTIVATE WINDOW
nircmd win activate title "VirtualDJ"

REM ----- MOUSE ACTIONS
REM nircmd setcursor 1850 580
REM nircmd movecursor 10 10
REM nircmd sendmouse left click

REM ----- SEND Shortcut
nircmd sendkeypress ctrl+spc
