DJ Jukebox 24 is an essential tool for managing a song library and generating playlists. You can rate each song so that favorites are played more often, and that unwanted songs are never chosen.
File management features include global search and replace on filenames, copy or delete files, and rename/move directories.
DJ Jukebox can remotely control a media player on a network computer. A click of the mouse can send keystrokes, playing instructions, and volume changes to the server’s media player. It also supports all media players and file types, commercials, repetition prevention, and much more!
Playlist Generator. DJ Jukebox generates random lists of songs that can be delivered to a media player such as Winamp.
Each song can be rated (on a scale of 0-100) to ensure that favorites are chosen more often. A rating of 0 will prevent the song from being played altogether.
DJ Jukebox File Management
- DJ Jukebox maintains a list of each song and its rating in the “Song Table”. From this table, songs can be easily renamed, deleted, or rated.
- DJ Jukebox can rename or move an entire directory. The Song Table is automatically updated to reflect the new song locations.
- DJ Jukebox can also perform a text search and replace operation on the Song Table. Again, the song files are automatically renamed when a change is made.
- DJ Jukebox can listen for commands from another copy of DJ Jukebox located on a local area network (LAN). Programmable keystrokes can be sent to the server with the click of a button, providing complete remote control over the media player.
- The remote control feature can be used by a dedicated entertainment server. DJ Jukebox can start automatically during bootup and begin listening for remote commands. The server does not even need a monitor.
- DJ Jukebox can insert commercials in between songs. The commercials can be any type of media file that the media player supports. The average number of commercials per song can be adjusted, and individual commercials can be assigned a frequency rating that determines how often they are chosen.
- When DJ Jukebox generates a playlist, it can make sure that songs do not get repeated too often. It can also ensure that no two consecutive songs are from the same album or artist, or have the same name.
- All songs on the hard drive can be added to the Song Table in one simple step.
- A song’s meta tags (a.k.a. ID3 tags) can be viewed and edited.
- Songs that were not recorded properly can be marked as “bad”. This prevents the song from being chosen for a playlist without removing it from the Song Table.
- The songs can be located on a network computer (no drive mapping is required).
- Playlists can be saved for later retrieval, like an “Oldies” mix for when you’re feeling nostalgic.
- A generated playlist can be limited to a single artist of your choosing. You can also choose to play a single album or song from a single decade.
- The song list, ratings, and other settings are stored in a “Project” file. Most users will only work with a single project, but any number can be used.
- The Song Table can be checked for errors, such as a nonexistent file or illegal rating.
- Identical songs can be identified and deleted.
- If you have a separate entertainment server, it can be shut down remotely. If the server supports the Wake On LAN feature, it can be powered up remotely.
- Command-line parameters can be used to generate and play playlists. This is especially useful for creating Desktop shortcuts.
- The Remote Control feature can be incorporated into third-party programs. The help file describes the syntax of all commands and explains how they can be sent to a DJ Jukebox server.
- The complete list of artists, albums, and songs can be printed.
Changes in DJ Jukebox 24.0:
- Rip CD: added the ability to encode to the FLAC format.
- Added the “flacenc.exe” command-line utility, which converts WAV files to FLAC’s.

- There is now an animation effect when switching tabs.
- Rename/Move Folder: if the Playlist tab is selected, the Old and New Folder fields are pre-populated with the path of the song on the line where the caret is located.
- The Song Table now obeys the operating system’s mouse wheel speed.
- Quick Search: this now begins at whatever row has focus rather than where the last search ended.
- Find Duplicate Songs: the rating of each song is now displayed.
- mp3enc.exe: added the /r switch, which recursively enters subfolders.
- Song Table Statistics: added Copy/Save/Print/Exit buttons to the bottom.
- Import From iTunes: the rating mapping is now remembered.
- Generate From Decade/Year: the “No Years Found” error now shows an example of the required path structure and has a Help button.

- Edit Tags: this will now display an error if neither the Playlist nor Songs tab is selected.
- Convert To MP3: the total number of successes and failures is now reported at the bottom of the log.
- Search: the row with the occurrence will not be scrolled to the middle of it is already visible.
- mp3enc.exe: this now produces an error if both a wildcard and a target file path are specified.

- The ratings and picks columns now reject any character that is not a digit.
- The interface now supports the mouse tilt wheel.

- Fixed: unminimizing on a secondary monitor was moving the window to the primary monitor.
- Fixed: error when saving a project to Google Drive.
- Fixed: Rename/Move Folder: the dialog was supposed to be modal.
- Fixed: the “Initialize Volume” scrollbar had so little reaction to the scroll arrows and mouse wheel that its movement was imperceptible.

- Fixed: possible crash when right-clicking on an edit box.
- Fixed: Edit Stored Playlist: when renaming a playlist, this now verifies that the new name doesn’t already exist. Previously, in this case, one of the playlists would be lost.
