With our all-new MyDjSongBook.com
fully-hosted server-based Web App, your customers can quickly find songs,
send requests, and even upload pictures for the Karaoke Screen -- right from
their smart phone. Gone are the days of printing and keeping up-to-date your
Karaoke song books - with MyDjSongBook your books are always up-to-date,
and requests are received right inside the Virtual DJ Studio interface.
For information about the older, built-in app server in VDJ, please see
this page. Note that you can use both
apps - the Hosted version for your customers, and the built-in version
so that you can use the App Control features.
Note: MyDjSongBook.com is not a third-party application - it was
developed by myself (Justin Nelson), developer of Virtual DJ Studio, for use
with VDJ, and is hosted on this same secure server.
Unlike the older, built-in VDJ App, this new hosted app does NOT require that
your customers log into the same WiFi or type in an IP address. Instead,
they just visit yourname.mydjsongbook.com in any modern browser.
No app installation required as it is solely run within the web browser.
You can also use the shorter yourname.mydjsb.com, which is easier to type
and easier to fit on your Karaoke Screen. It immediately redirects to the secure
engaging experience on nearly every modern browser available. Just to name a few:
Default (Built-In) Browser
Desktop or Laptop (Windows, Linux, Mac):
Internet Explorer (10+)
Plus any other browser that is fully HTML5-compliant will work just fine with the app,
and it looks, works, and feels exactly the same on all platforms.
In Virtual DJ Studio, click the Requests tab, then click the Server button.
You will then be presented with the following dialog:
First, check the box Enable MyDjSongBook Web App. Then enter your username and password,
that you created when you signed up.
When you click Log In and Start, VDJ connects to the server. If all goes well, the button
turns grey and you're signed in. You will see the "MDSB Server" turn green in the VDJ
Choose Automatically Log In when VDJ Starts to ensure it logs in every time.
After completing a full index of your Music and Karaoke files, click the Upload Music
Index button. You can only upload once every 12 hours, so be sure you have indexed
all files you want to be searchable by your customers.
This process may take a few minutes, depending on your connection speed and how many
songs are in your index.
There are some advanced options at the bottom of this dialog as well -
click the "More >>" Button to reveal them.
Check For Requests Rapidly
This option polls the server once per second to see if any requests or picture uploads
are waiting. If so, they will show up immediatley in your Requests tab. Without
this option, it polls every five seconds.
Confirm when Adding Karaoke Requests to Playlist Player
This ensures that you don't accidentally add Karaoke requests to the Playlist line.
This is just a safe-guard - uncheck this if you use the Playlist Player for your
Allow User-Submitted Pictures Automatically
When a user submits a Profile Picture, normally you would have to verify their picture
and choose whether or not to use it. Checking this option lets the user's picture take
over immediately. If that user is on the Karaoke Screen as an Upcoming Singer,
their picture will be displayed for all to see within seconds of their upload, so use this option
Allow Karaoke Screen in Web APP
You can allow users to Follow Along on their device with the Karaoke graphics (lyrics).
This option uploads a small file to the server, which the web app interprets and displays the
graphics in sync with VDJs current position.
When this feature is enabled, a button will appear under the Currently Playing in the
app when a Karaoke song is playing, linking them directly to the Karaoke screen part of the app.
Note that you can continue to use the Built-In server for the DJ Control
features. From there you can control playback on the Playlist player only at this time
- more DJ Control features are coming soon...
All communication to and from the App Server and VDJ and your customers is fully
encrypted over SSL. No user information can be comprimised by hackers, even over an open WiFi
connection. A Padlock icon appears in the address bar, ensuring your visitors that their
information is safely transmitted (just like this site).
You can tailor the app to suit your needs - enable and disable features, create color schemes
and layouts, even (limited but expanding) multiple-language support. You control every aspect
of what the user sees, even if you have no HTML knowledge.
