KRYKEY PREMIUM RADIO TUTORIAL KRYKEY ON YOU TUBE
  Welcome to your new Premium Radio Station on the KryKey Network. This tutorial will give you a
quick and basic way of getting up and running using the Media Console and Studio. The very first thing
we advise is NOT to use the browsers Chrome or Safari as they do not work correctly in the Studio.
and we recommend Firefox to get the best from the current Studio.
 
  MEDIA CONSOLE LOGIN SCREEN 
  To get started you need to first login to the Media Console - https://KryKey.com/KMC 
 
  1. select the premium radio station
  2. enter your email address
  3. enter the five digit passcode
  4. click/tap the button to enter
 
  MEDIA CONSOLE GLANCE SCREEN  
  Upon entering the Media Console you will land on the GLANCE screen which displays various data
and information about and for your Premium Radio Station.
 
 
 
  1. Message from us will be displayed here in yellow 
  2. your premium radio station information including listener stats, co2 production and your ranking
  3. the main navigation panel for the Media Console. Most of thee screens also have sub-screens giving you more features and options
  4. we call this the TRACKER, which displays to you when the next invoice is issued, what that date is, the service type you have, the fee you are paying, and when the invoice is due
  5. this blog feed is updated daily with news about the network and media console changes, we recommend you look at it each day
 
  MEDIA CONSOLE STUDIO SCREEN   
  To get broadcasting/streaming to the world, on the main Media Console navigation panel labeled
number '3' in the screen shot above, please select STUDIO 
   
   
 
  1. these four displays are for the unique & total listeners for the week, the total listening hours for the week and how much co2 was produced for the week 
  2. the programmable buttons and Status-Alerts can be set in the Media Console RADIO screen but you do not need them to start broadcasting/streaming
  3. Media Console Navigation
  4. the current Studio has a separate login system so you need to use the login details supplied
    for the Studio and not the Media Console. Once you have these:
    - add the email address
    - type in the passcode/word
    - click/tap OWNER-STUDIO ONE button
 
  This is the current Studio as you can see in the screenshot below. This Studio is being replaced by the Media Console and will be fully replaced this year.
The Studio requires Adobe Flash in your Browser and it does NOT function correctly using Chrome or Safari and we recommend Firefox.
   
   
 
  1.  studio navigation controls to open the content libraries (songs, podcasts, promos, etc), open the administration screen and logout
  2. studio media controls
    - PLAY to start the broadcast/streaming
    - STOP which terminates the broadcast/streaming
    - MIC the is for the microphone to turn on and off but this "ONLY" works to our players and does "NOT" work by sending voice to the mobile apps or tunein apps for that you need to also use the LyvShow PC app
    - LINEIN same as MIC
  3. displays to you what is playing, what is next and what has been played
  4. this is the BROADCAST area or some call the booth and this is where you add content to broadcast/stream
  5. the content libraries to open and DRAG content into the BROADCAST area for playing
 
  TO GET STARTED LETS UPLOAD A SONG 
Click on the Studio navigation, the UPLOAD SONGS button
 
   MEDIA CONSOLE STUDIO PRS MUSIC LIBRARY SCREEN
  With this screen (which is soon to be replaced with a multi-upload screen in the Media Console), you can (1) select a song from your PC and then (2) add to your music library (upload) 
   
 

 

 
  SONGS MUST BE TAGGED CORRECTLY 
  Before you upload, you must check if the song is 'tagged' correctly. Currently you can use a few ways to check the required tags (song name, artist name, genre, album and year), as these are used for the Player on your site and if embedded elsewhere, so you can search your library and find a song, etc. If you want a FREE too that does this, then go to the KryKey Tools screen and download & install MP3TAG. Once tagged you can upload the MP3.
  We also recommend to have the songs bitrate at 320K to get the best sound, but all other bitrates are played.
  The current maximum song upload is 30Mb.  
  Once you have finished uploading the songs, click/tap the Studio button on the top right of the music library screen to get back to the Studio.
 
  START PLAYING MUSIC AND BROADCASTING/STREAMING 
  This is the quickest to get going after you have made sure the songs are tagged and now uploaded into the music library.  
   
   
 
  1. open the song/music library tab on the right 
  2. the song in the tab, click, hold down mouse button and drag to the left into the broadcast area
    you can then click on any song, podcast, promo, etc., on here and move them up and down and place as required
  3. click/tap when you want to start playing/broadcasting/streaming, or you can just double click the song to start
  4. this is a FADER for the studio mic and music as they are separate streams, we recommend you do now use this unless your using the microphone and talking to the listeners via the players only (does not work on mobile apps as LyvShow is required)
  5. studio speaker to turn on and off by clicking/tapping
  6. to get rid of any song, podcast, etc., then click on the required song and then click/tap once the clear button as two quick clicks/taps will clear it all
 
  SHARED MUSIC LIBRARY 
  The Shared Music Library has songs that have been submitted by Indie Artists via our service (click here to see it) and can be used by you to play as much as you want free from royalties. To add any of the music to your music library, first open the shared music library by clicking SOUND LIBRARY in the top Studio navigation.
   
   
 
  1. open the KryKey Music Library (KML)
  2. click/tap ADD next to the song you want in YOUR music library 
  3. click/tap and go back to the Studio and open the song tab on the right and rag the song into the broadcast area.
 
  PODCASTS 
  Uploading podcasts are essentially the same via the Podcast Library, but you can add the podcast name and description on this screen and then upload.
  Please note current upload limit per podcast is 140Mb .
 
  That should get you broadcasting/streaming to the world pretty quickly,
and you then need to have a look at more of our help and support screens and videos at
