Change default Artist field in recorded shows
  • I would like to change the artist field in the recorded shows from "Airtime Show Recorder" to "NTS Radio" in airtime 2.0.3. I tried editing /usr/lib/airtime/pypo/bin/ and changing line 138 from:

                artist = api_client.encode_to("Airtime Show Recorder",'utf-8')


                artist = api_client.encode_to("NTS Radio",'utf-8')

    but this resulted in files being imported to the following directory without a proper date and they were not auto-soundclouded:

    /srv/airtime/stor/imported/NTS Radio/unknown/5049-22-00-00-Dumbfoundsound-192kbps.mp3

    Is there another way of doing this?

    Hey James, what you did is correct so far, but you also have to change it in this file


    the line should look like this

    if(md['MDATA_KEY_CREATOR'] == u"Airtime Show Recorder"):

    (not sure which version you're using.)
  • Naomi's suggested change should fix the problem :). We need to make this more elegant in the future. Ticket created here:

  • Aha, I thought there might be another field to change in another file somewhere for when the file is imported :)

    Thanks guys!
