If you are part of the Ad Revenue Share Program, you can find the trigger files to insert here: https://support.live365.com/hc/en-us/articles/115003833727-Live-DJ-Ad-Triggers
LiveWebDJ can strip out any non-alphabetic characters in MP3 file metadata. In order for the ad triggers to work correctly, the files need to remain unchanged. If you see that your Ad Trigger files are displayed as ADBREAK90000 1 instead of ADBREAK_90000 1, then you'll need to fix the titles of the ad triggers.
