Futuri Mobile On Demand / Podcast Page

This article is written for Program Directors Digital Managers

Futuri Mobile apps can display an On Demand page, which stations have used for podcasts, on-demand weather/news reports, and secondary live streams.

For News/Talk stations with this feature, the page is managed in the Futuri Control Room under Mobile App Talk Features > 24/7 Streams. If your music station has had this feature added by Futuri VIP Support, you will find it under Mobile App > Secondary Streams.

For each on-demand stream, you'll want to provide the following in the Futuri Control Room:

Field Description
Menu Name The primary name of the stream, displayed on the stream button in the streams list in the app.
Menu Subtitle Optional subtitle displayed on the stream button. If you're using an RSS feed for this button, the <title> field.
Player Name This name is displayed in the player at the top of the app when the user is listening to the stream. It appears in the form: "You are listening to <player name>."
iOS Stream URL The URL of the stream used on the iOS version of the app. This can be AAC or MP3, or an RSS feed that contains AAC or MP3 files.
Android Stream URL The URL of the stream used on the Android version of the app. This can be AAC or MP3, or an RSS feed that contains AAC or MP3 files.
Now Playing Page URL Optional. For music stations, if you want to display a different page when the stream is playing, you'd put that URL here. This is ideal for HD2 streams that are playing different music from your main stream. This should be a web page, not an audio URL.
RSS Feed / Podcast If the stream URL(s) you've provided are RSS feeds, you should check this box. By default, the app will display the latest item in that RSS feed. If you'd like to allow users to choose from previous episodes, please contact Futuri VIP Support.
Icon (212x170) The icon displayed next to the stream on the stream listing page in the app.

You can also mark a stream as "greyed out" if you need to make it temporarily unavailable without removing it.

Once your streams have been inserted, you can easily adjust their order in the Futuri Control Room.
