Other Upload Options
Visit project.ibroadcast.com for more options including a collection of scripts written in a variety of languages and other upload methods.

Choose either a light or dark theme for this web interface.
Choose what columns you would like displayed in track listings
Set the size of containers, which are albums, playlists, etc.
Left Sidebar Size
Increase the width of the left sidebar.
Use Artist Artwork When Available
When library is grouped by artist, show an artist image, instead of album artwork, if the artist image is available.
Ignore Prefix When Sorting
When sorting albums and artists, ignore prefixes, such as "the" (i.e. "Beatles, The" instead of "The Beatles")
Prefixes to Ignore When Sorting
Comma separated list of prefixes to ignore when sorting albums and artists (i.e. "The Beatles")
Hide Non-Matching Tracks
With this setting on and when searching track listings (i.e. an album or playlist is open) those tracks which do not match the search criteria are hidden from view instead of greyed out.
Hide Ratings from UI
With this setting you can choose to hide rating options for tracks, albums or artists.
Track Rating Mode
For tracks you can choose to use thumbs up or thumbs down or the star rating system.
Album & Artist Rating Mode
For albums and artists you can choose to use thumbs up or thumbs down or the star rating system.
Skip Low Rated Tracks
Automatically skip low rated tracks in the play queue.
Turn "One Queue" on and off. With One Queue on, all of your devices share the same play queue. With this setting off, each of your devices has their own unique play queue.
Toggle between Shuffle play and ordered playback of the play queue. With this setting on, you can switch between the original order tracks were added to the queue or shuffle them.
Auto Disable Shuffle
Automatically turn off Shuffle Mode when the play queue is cleared.
Toggle Replay Gain on and off. With this on the apparent playback volume is normalized from track to track. You may need to turn the volume up on your computer with this on.
Append to Play Queue
With this on, tracks are appended to the play queue instead of replacing it each time you click on an album, playlist, track, etc. Note: You can also access this by right clicking on something to play and choosing "Append To Play Queue".
Original Bitrate Streaming
With this on, tracks are streamed to this web browser at the bitrate and format of the original file you uploaded with no transcoding. With this setting off, tracks are streamed at 128kbps. Note: if songs do not play with this setting on, that probably means that the format you uploaded is not compatable with this web browser and you should turn this off.
Combine Multi-Disc Album Sets
Toggle this setting on to combine multi disc album sets in your library. This will be reflected across all of your devices. Note: It may take up to 2 minutes for this change to be reflected in your library after you change it. If you do not get the results you expect, see our FAQ for tips.
Disable File Path Duplicate Check
After uploading a file with MediaSync Lite, its file path will be matched against other files in your library. If a file with the same path already exists in your library, the newly uploaded file will replace the old one. This allows you to update file metadata on your computer and re-upload. Turning this setting on disables this functionality. See our FAQ for tips.
Other Device Bitrate
Use this to set your preferred bitrate and format when streaming to devices other than this web browser or the Android or iOS mobile apps. Currently this applies to: Alexa, Chromecast, Roku, Apple TV, Android TV and Sonos devices.

Upload Playlist File
After you upload your playlist you will be presented with the tracks that were matched against your library. You will then be able to review and change the matches before adding this playlist to your library.
This playlist will be immediatly added to your library and any tracks in your playlist that were not found in your library will be omitted.
* Playlist matching time is determined by your library size and playlist length. For most libraries you should allow 1 to 3 seconds per track in the playlist you upload (i.e. a 60 track playlist may take 1 to 3 minutes to match).
