Live365 requires each commercially produced song to be in its own track and to display the correct artist name, track title, and album. Blank metadata will cause problems for both AutoDJ and SoundExchange.
It's very important that your tracks display correct metadata within Live365 in order for you to be in compliance with our music licensing.
Metadata is information attached to a track that shows the track title, artist, and album. This information is important, not only for Sound Exchange reporting, but it also helps AutoDJ function properly, giving you a wider selection of songs and better track rotation.
You should avoid having any tracks with blank metadata, or labelled with "untitled artist" and "untitled album". This is because the DMCA check will think that all those tracks are from same artist or album, even though they might not be. This is important because according to the DMCA, you can only have songs from the same artist or album a maximum of 4 times in a span of 3 hours. You can read more about the DMCA here.
Note that each track can only contain one song. You cannot upload tracks that contain multiple commercially produced songs (for example, syndicated programming). Each track needs to display accurate metadata for the song that is currently playing.
You can update your track metadata from inside the Live365 interface:
From the Navigation Bar on the left side of the Live365 interface, select Media > Tracks.
In the Tracks pane, click on the action menu for the track that you want to edit.
Select the Edit Track option. This will open a new window from which you can edit the track metadata. Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of the Metadata window in order to fill in all of the fields.
Once you have added the correct artist and album in the fields provided, click the "Save" button.
