Scheduler allows you to make one-off or recurring recordings of your live stream which will populate new items in your library. You can add these items to a playlist in order to create a podcast or embed on your site for your listeners to listen on-demand.


If you are an Aiir Customer or have a Platform-Compatible EPG, speak to a member of our support team about integrating your programme schedule into Platform.

    Recording/Publish Times:

The above example shows a recurring recording between 7am and 10am on weekdays. The scheduled recordings would commence on the 9th of July 2020 and end on the 9th of July 2021. Recorded items would be published immediately after the recording is complete and remain published for 1 week (168hrs).


Recording Start/StopThe start/end date and time of your first scheduled recording.*
Recording TypeThis can be one time or recurring. One time is applicable for one-off special broadcasts or events that may be happening on your stream. Recurring is tailored towards regular shows, (daily or weekly).
Frequency (Recurring events only) This is where you set the recurrence of the recording, It will take the time information of your first recording and apply it to a daily or weekly schedule.
Days (Recurring events only) If you select weekly, then you can select particular days you would like the recording to run, based on the scheduling of the programme. (this is especially useful for shows that run through the weekdays but not weekends or vice versa) 
Begin from/End before (Recurring events only) Select a time period you would like these automated dates to run for. The scheduler will stop making recordings one the "end before" date has passed
Publish Delay (Recurring events only) You can delay the publishing of the content by x minutes after the recording has finished. This is useful if you wish to audit the recorded item before it is uploaded for on-demand listening to the public.
Publish Duration (Recurring events only) This decides how long an item is published for (in hours) after the item has recorded.
Publish Start/Stop (One Time events only) If you have selected a one time event you simply get given the option of adding a publish start stop time.
