Unknown- How to Deal With Metadata that shows "Unknown"
  • If you every see this in your metadata you know something is wrong.
    This is what you should first do

    1. If you use OGG , make sure you turn on the Vorbis metatag at System===>>Settings
    2. Otherwise you have not tag your files properly .my suggestions is that if you already import them in Airtime,you just have to bear the pain of properly tagging the files then go to library and remove them all.Yes you have to remove that "million tracks",they should not be put in there without properly tag for many reason including legal reasons and no matter what you think of getting a script etc.there is no shortcut that will give you the correct results.when its comes to doing the right thing sometimes it require starting over and this is one such case.
    3. While this is not a substitute for 2 above,you can either append or update the output to a customize metadata (especially for live stream).Attached is a suggested script customize it to your suit and place it above any output script (above the registered functions and if you use the tunein api) in the ls_script (usually line 283)

    Liquidsoap by default  will treat missing artist and/or title as "UNKNOWN" ( see external.liq - line 199).
