Closing song indicator

The feature request that could make using kJams easier for me is a way to indicate the end of the night. This could be putting an indicator on a song or a time of night that kJams recognizes so that no queued songs after this end are displayed. Optionally, it could display a message instead of a son...

Re: Using kJams in Parallels in Catalina

When I first installed Mojave on my SSD, I had all of my data (and program) on my Catalina drive, and used aliases to point to the old stuff, which worked. But I decided to move everything to the Mojave drive, as this gives me great flexibility being able to run it on any Mac! I got the idea after r...

Re: Using kJams in Parallels in Catalina

If it is just those two programs, you might consider running your DJ program on the Mojave drive. If it's doing a bunch of other work, then I guess your only solution is Parallels.

I tried Fusion, but it wouldn't let me put my output to external monitors.

Re: Using kJams in Parallels in Catalina

An alternative that worked for me was to finally break down and buy a La Cie SSD. I created a Mojave drive on it just to run kJams. It's also useful for moving files around between computers. Even after kJams is 64-bit, and I upgrade that drive to Catalina, it is nice that I have my kJams library in...

Re: Running kJams with dual boot

In case anybody's wondering about my partition sizing, DiskUtility shows me using 33.07 GB (5 GB reserve), with 6.93 GB free.

Re: Running kJams with dual boot

From within kJams on my “regular” iMac, I selected Help/Reveal Preferences and found /Users/HBrazee/Music/kJams/kJams Preferences.

Re: Running kJams in a VM

The person who helped me offered that, and when I accepted told me:

I completely understand and honor your decision. I will be raising a refund query shortly and will update you with the Support Request number as well.

The refund team will then be updating you with the process.

Re: Running kJams with dual boot

The URLs match now, I didn't do anything except wait. I wish I knew where the kJams configuration file was and either copied it, or better yet, created an alias to it. There's a setting I can't find: In my new kJams setup when I play a song, the cursor doesn't drop down to the next song. I compared ...

Running kJams with dual boot

I want to run kJams in a Mojave partition with the data in my main partition which I intend to upgrade to Catalina (and eventually run from there). Except for having a different server address (how do I change that?), everything appears to be working. Here’s what I did: Step 1: Get an “Install macOS...

Re: Running kJams in a VM

It looks as though this experiment is a failure for me. Whether VM-Fusion is full screen or windowed, I don't seem to be able to have my kJams Karaoke windows on the TVs connected via my Thunderbolt ports. Too bad I spent $50 for that Fusion update. So my next experiment is to try creating a Mojave ...

Re: Running kJams in a VM

VM-Fusion support talked with me. Apparently the Fusion VM can handle pass-through to USB ports, but she didn't know about pass-through to Thunderbolt ports. She will get back to me.

I use Thunderbolt ports to connect to TVs for Karaoke. My Mac sees them, but the VM doesn't see them.

Re: Running kJams in a VM

I thought I would test the kJams server, even though I haven't been able to persuade anybody in my senior living to try it. (The person who brought an iPad has moved away. iPad browsers work). For some reason, the kJams in my Fusion drive tries to use 192.168.198.128 and the kJams in my *real* Mojav...
