Controls in Zara's player window

The players allows you to broadcast audios through the specified sound card, which is configurable by accessing the options dialog. It contains several elements:

Controls -- The top toolbar

Controls -- Audio state indicators

Controls -- Playlist window

Controls -- Control buttons

● Controls – Right-click the Playlist

Right-click the Playlist

The playlist has a pop up menu, which opens by right-clicking the mouse on the playlist. This is basically a short cut to commonly used items from the menu bar and tool bars. Simultaneously, the track that is right-clicked is selected for the action selected in the Pop-Up menu. You can access the following functions through this menu:

  • Mark as next: It marks the selected audio in green, so that it will be the next cut played.
  • Play: It starts playback with the selected audio. If another cut was being played in that moment, it stops it.
  • Rename: It lets you change the name of the selected file in the playlist.
  • Set voice track…: It assigns a voice track to the selected audio.
  • Remove voice track: Removes the voice track associated with selected audio.
  • Cue: It allows you to prelisten the selected audio without broadcasting it. To use this function you need two sound cards.
  • View selection length: Opens a dialog that displays the total length of the selected audios - useful to calculate how long the selection will run so as to time your show.
  • Shuffle: Rearranges the list randomly.
  • Copy: Copies the selected audios into the clipboard.
  • Paste: Pastes in the playlist the audios contained in the clipboard. Delete: Removes the selected audios from the playlist.
  • Delete all: Empties the playlist. Note: This will not clear a list made by a template.

Clearing a Template

Deleting items in a playlist which is playing a Template only causes the Template to automatically replace the item with another one.

To Clear a Template playlist so you can make up your own playlist, the simplest way is to click on the menu of the player then choose New.
