7.7 + MyDjSongBook.com Launched Today - **MAJOR**
« on: April 02, 2017, 12:57:25 PM »
We've all been waiting for this day for quite some time. Version 7.7 is released, with a few new features and fixes, but most importantly it connects with your MyDjSongBook.com subscription!

    New VDJ: https://www.vdj.net/VDJSetup.exe

    Web App: https://www.MyDjSongBook.com/

The all new server-hosted app allows your customers to search songs, make requests, and even upload their own "selfie" profile picture for use on the VDJ Karaoke Screen!  It's simple to use, and makes life a lot easier for the DJ.

No more configuring the router, showing customers how to enter an IP address, or any of that -- just direct them to:

    your-name.mydjsongbook.com

    - or -

    your-name.mydjsb.com  <-- Short form redirect URL - easier to type, smaller to fit on Karaoke screen

The domain and username are not case sensitive so you can pretty it up:

https://JMan.MyDjSongBook.com/  <-- Click for a real live demo of what your customers will see

The app layout is completely customizable, features can be turned off or on, and so much more. Upload your own music database from within VDJ with a single click.

Note: You MUST have VDJ 7.7 or higher (still a free upgrade for any 7.x user) installed. From there, click "Requests", then "Server", and you'll see the all new feature with shortcut buttons to sign up, configure your app, or upload your music.

Introductory prices are:

$4.99/month - full app use with small ad appearing on user pages
$9.99/month - same but WITHOUT the ad
$99.88/year - no ads, and save $20 off the Monthly price!

You can change or cancel your subscription any time. PayPal is the only method supported at this time.

I know you guys have been asking about this for a while now, and with LOTS of beta-testing help from Fabio (THANK YOU SO MUCH!) we've put together a pretty nice system. It has been tested "in the real world" for over a month now, and we've worked out all the bugs and kinks we could find so far.

There is an entire discussion group here for talk about the app, so be sure to visit there if you have any questions, comments, bug reports, or anything else to say about this exciting new feature!

For fun I posted a YouTube promo video. Once VDJ 8.0 is released with video playback support, I'll include a version of this but without the header & footer text (since VDJ will add that, and it will reflect your own personal URL).

The idea is that you could play this now and then to get your customers' attention, letting them know that they can go to the app without anything to download or install, just typing an address.

I had the wrong URL on there for the video... oops! Plus it's been updated somewhat.

I just released (yesterday) a 7.7.1 update that fixes a few minor issues with the Karaoke screen, and with the handling of connection errors when using the server app.

As for the Karaoke screen, the "default" is now the 3 pictures and with no QR code by default (you can still turn that back on). I figured most people still don't know what it is or how to use it -- I still haven't seen a phone with a factory-installed QR reader... so I'm not going to push it and waste valuable screen space on something that just looks kinda cool... and many if not most of my customers use the default screen layout...

If anyone's interested, hit MyDjSb.com/dj for the description for DJs to check out what all you can do with it.
