Using smart phone to control your show. Time to enroll in MIIP.

Recommended Posts

Does this ever happen?   You are standing out front talking to someone and you want to show them a particular song...but you can't.   The show player has them in a locker order.   You have to think, hmm.  that one is two or three from now and plays about every xx minutes.   You could run up to the show computer and stop the show to start a song on demand.  But the usual thing to do would be ask them to wait with  "they are all good".

OR 

If you have MIIP installed on your show computer you would just tap that song on your smart phone and it will be queued to play next.  

 

MIIP Provides for free.

A web site with your display name on it,  your songs,  your play times.   For you and your guests to pick a song.   You as the site owner can control more things with the password.

Site is completely customizable to your desired colors and fonts.   Add your message and links using the members only pages. 

 

There are several videos at this link for those who are curious.  https://vimeo.com/album/3334015

Good reports have come back that MIIP is working with .play files.      If you wish to add phone control to your show with miip its not too late.

Bob,  I was able to successfully get MIIP going after some playing around.  Worked great for me.

Thanks,

Mike

I feel 100 percent confident with MIIP and S5. Played my show through all the way during the day this past weekend. All 101 sequences played as expected. Great job getting it to work Bob. I would have had to go back to S4 if it didnt work. Thanks again for an awesome program. Now I need to spend some time with the new features.

I spent a good part of Sunday and Monday getting MIIP setup on my new show computer, with some followup testing Tuesday and today.  That and a whole bunch of E-Mails back and forth with BobO.  Once I figured it all out, the capabilities are really great.  Although I may have found a bug, but it appeared that I was doing a couple things strange together to cause it to happen.  Although I am going to run a standard LOR show on opening night because I do want a specific order of the songs, starting on day 2, I will be running MIIP.  I even figured out an interesting work-around to the maybe bug that I will test later tonight

A really huge Thank You to BobO for answering all my questions while I figured it out...

MIIP has new 2017 options to play an opening song and closing song for a show.   In some setups the closing song is playing first.    After my setup I may be able to fix that. In the mean time if you desire a closing song you can schedule a hidden show with one song after your main show.

Bob I am in the same boat as DIbb(above) hope my account still works, I sent a request to reset password and get this up and going. though I only have 3 songs this year with my new pixel tree, I am very excited. As you may recall my son developed epilepsy so I couldn't run my show at all last year. Now we have meds figured out and he is under control so we are ready to go at it again. Thanks for all the time you put into this for all of us.

Miip will work with three songs but it you wont see much voting.

Its hard to find your account without a name, email, or site code!          Found it and reset your account and sent email to your last known.
