Topic: Metadata exposure via file
TristanXPRO SubscriberMember since 2019
Is there any way to ask for, or does it already exist? I need to split the single Icecast stream into two, and need a place to access the song info metadata in either a file or via TCP (I'm assuming a file would be FAR easier to do than to expose a TCP endpoint to do it).

This is exactly what I need, I'll try it out today, ,thanks a MILLION!!!


How do I get this to work? LOL


Ok, ,I sort of got it to work, however ... it only works with files I store locally, if I stream in via say, Soundcloud or Beatport ... I get the weird code used to id the song, not the actual track info ,... any suggestions??

I do get an error if I set it to "Advanced" ... Sequence contains no elements ... not sure how to address that either.

1) You don't need to quote the entire text of a message that's immediately above yours
2) You can edit your original message rather than create a new one each time

Pretty sure this only works correctly with local files.

I don't use any of the streaming services so can't say for sure.

Yeah, that's what it looks like, however, working with it helped me to get BUTT working right, so that's an optional solution.,

What i posted works with streamed media (any media), but requires some basic NodeJS programming knowledge.

He could fetch the data from one icecast stream and use it for the other. Or am i misunderstanding the problem here?

I could totally do that, ,but I am not well versed in JS ... only C# :( I did consider writing my own app to do it but I think I found a solution using BUTT and the file VDJ stores it's history in as it goes. Thanks for all your awesome help, I wouldn't have found that solution without it.
