PHP code enhancement

Good afternoon.

What I am trying to do on the playlist tab. Currently I have a PHP code that randomly generates a playlist each time the user clicks on the category. What I want to do is now have the ability to load 5 seconds (mp3) that will load every 5 songs. for example one of the add is a voice clips "You’re  listening to HIPHOP and R&B provided by theonlinebeatz.com I want that mp3 clip to load every 5 other mp3's.
 
 (I still want to keep the way that is being generated randomly)
autoplaylist.php

What is the mechanism that plays the mp3 now? I think this would be an ffmpeg type of operation in which the full mp3 is edited on the fly to snip out the 5 second clip.

Sounds like you have a list of songs in an array that is your playlist.  Or you are randomly getting songs and playing them in a loop.  Before playing a song you want to check to see if you played 5 songs.  If so, play an ad....  The logic would be something like this:

$counter = 0;

While ($play_songs == true){

    // play the song
 
    // use the modulus to track every multiple of 5 to play an ad
    if ( ! $counter % 5) {
          // play an ad
    }

    $counter++;
}

Sorry, can't be more specific without the code you are using...

greetings Zirwo02, , I looked at your code file of  autoplaylist.php  , there's too much code in it for me to spend time on trying to figure out how to help you, I can see that the method-function that makes the play-List is   makePlaylist(  )  , , however this is NOT a short function and does several many things to make a play list, to make it even more complex, it adds sub-items like artist, title and image.
I do not really know how the XML is suppose to read to be workable for this, and I do not have time to install and use the  autoplaylist.php  stuff and see what the XML will be, ? ?
I will guess that you want to insert a line in the XML for your ads that would be =
<item><filename>/home/domain/pickle/theonlinebeatz.mp3</filename></item>

you may could do this in the  makePlaylist(  )   method-function,   do you have code you can show where you altered the  makePlaylist(  )  function to try and get this?
