Repertoire Help / Re: Animate page moves

I don't remember how this worked two years ago, but currently the lyrics scroll does animate when moving between markers.

Also, if you turn on the 2-column presentation option, the app will show one marker's worth of text in each column, with everything else hidden; that might make it easier to orient yourself to where you are in the song.

Can you find out if any of the other streaming software you've used has the same functionality to read in these text files?

the first answer is painful - I'm usually running BH on an iPad (or 2), but have been streaming on OBS on a win10 laptop, which is my first PC time since XP.
But i do sometimes use a mac laptop as well - gotta consider the jump to the newer OS, which i've been avoiding having gotten burned on several items with my last upgrade.. but it's a bit silly since that pain has already been inflicted. 

In terms of standards, the lowest common denominator I can think of is individual text files - optimally separate Title & Artist (or I have a custom field for songwriter) -  it's what i've gone to on OBS for lower 3rd title graphics and such, because you can just update and save (so I have "Name A", "Title A", "Name B", "Title B", etc.. files).  I was thinking of trying to use an html option, so it could either be just 'now playing', or a cumulative list of songs played that compiles throughout the set.

I've been hoping to encounter a way of using a single spreadsheet or database for the titling data, but i have yet to sort out how to get the streaming program(s) to query xls

Just thought it would help with the interactivity that some of the streaming sites seem to be targeting.
And, a little after-thought - if it can be done, perhaps a slight/variable delay could be applied, so you don't give away the next tune while... tuning.

TIA for giving it some thought.

holy timelapse - i forgot about this one - and have more-or-less adapted to using the auto-scroll, and been tweaking layouts, run times, etc to make this work.
the whole 'remember to hit start' thing is still my nemesis.

using iPad  - with markers for song parts - verse, chorus etc..  I started out using as few markers as I could as page breaks, but found that having one for each part made for more tap-dancing, but was easier to keep track of what was going on. 

What I had initially found was (particularly on songs where a verse and chorus fit neatly on a 'page') that I - as the person operating the pedal remote - could easily know where I was.  But others following (tracking the movements of my iPad) could look up, miss the page jump, and think they were in the wrong page/place.

What platform are you running this from? If it's iOS, the ability to share files between apps is limited. That's easier on Android or on a Mac with the Mac app.

The second issue is standards ... is there a standardized way that most streaming apps use? I wouldn't want to implement this separately for each streaming app.

So.. in this new age of streaming -
wondering if there is an easy way to output <now playing> information to use with a streaming software - html file or separate text files for 'song name', 'songwriter'?
something akin to the setlist web widget.
would love to incorporate that into a stream - i've been using mostly OBS, but playing around with options.  Thanks.

FYI, just in case anyone comes upon my post above (where I commented on the slowness of BH in the web interface for someone like me with thousands of songs in their database): 

After I filed a help ticket, Arlo tweaked something (it turns out something was amiss with my database settings), and I now am able to access Bandhelper vie the web interface at a much more acceptable speed. 

I just wanted to make a note of that here, because I often wish that people who resolved their problems through a separate help ticket would loop back to the forum where they initially described their problem, to let folks know the issue can be/has been resolved.   

Arlo, I really appreciate your help.  So nice to have an app that's supported by a responsive developer/tech team.

Maybe I was wrong or thought too complicate. I just tried to add a new project, and there I need to add an account, user ID and Password. So I guess I just to add him to my account as user, share one or more projects with him, and when he add a new project on his device, using the credential I pass to him, and than he should see the projects from my account I shared with him. Correct?
