I’m sure I’ve read somewhere than mAirList can communicate the current track name to Icecast as the stream description. Basically, any song that is played, I would like the title and artist relayed to our Icecast 2 installation so listeners can see which song is being played.
If this can’t be done with Icecast, is there another way to do it so it can accessed somehow?
[code]Yes, it’s possible with the “HTTP” logging interface. For a quick start, paste the following into your logging.ini file:
Value2=%a - %b
If you already have a LogInterface0 section (because you have set up another logging option), adjust the number as needed. You also need to change the url, password and mountpoint according to your server settings.
By the way, mAirList 3.0 will have native support for Icecast2 and Shoutcast logging, which will be easier to set up than the current approach using the generic HTTP interface.
