SongbookDB Plugin for MTU Hoster® (desktop)
The most common support request DJs submit when using the the MTU plugin it that they get an error in Hoster when song requests are sent in.
99% of the time, this is because the DJ used an import method OTHER than the "MTU Hoster Song Database" method when importing their songs to SongbookDB (this import method is the ONLY one that can be used for the plugin to operate correctly).
Please be sure to watch the video below before sending in any support requests - it will get you up and running FAST!
The plugin connects to MTU Hoster®, and allows you to either manually or automatically add song requests received from the SongbookDB network to the MTU Hoster® playlist.
