    "Can we edit now metadata directly with the web interface?"

    It's been possible since the 1.6 release...click on the file in the library, choose "Edit Metadata".

    @paul, that's not working on the last version ;) and the previous before (i had talking about that before here)
    metadatas are not changed on the file, only in pgsql database

    Ah, that's something different.  So the answer is no, changing metadata on disk through the interface has not been implemented for 2.0.0.

    using ID3v2 class could be a solution
    but quid of airtime evolutions ?
  • Hi,

    just trying out airtime 2.0.0 beta on a test machine (Ubuntu Desktop 10.04 32 bit 1.5gb RAM) and I can't get audio out from the sound card. The icecast stream works if I disable the Hardware Audio Output option in System/Stream Settings. Here's the liquidsoap log:

    Hi James -
    Thanks for the feedback, we are working on tweaking it so you can select your hardware output type(ALSA, OSS, PortAudio, etc), which should hopefully fix this issue.
  • is there're any special upgrade instructions for manual install from tarball?
  • Hi Romeo,

    Upgrade instructions can be found on the wiki: https://wiki.sourcefabric.org/display/CC/Upgrading+to+Airtime+2.0.X

    Hope that helps!

    @Eugene : create a simlink if necessary 2.7 -> 2.6
    but in production use and lts ubuntu or a debian
    not  a 11.04 or 11.10 who are near rolling release ... (that can work, for a moment, or ... not)
  • @Albert+FR:I'm always using latest sometimes beta and rc versions of ubuntu server coz bugs mostly on desktops while server versions good and offer latest packages from native repos. for example current ubuntu 10.04 LTS even don't have php5-fpm in repos.

    @Eugene I'm ok with you, but not everyone is power user ;)
    for you (an me to) compiling is a day job, but not for everyone :D
    and for production, i'm using only server distrib, not desktop (who are less reactive, and mostly loudly )

  • Reply to @Eugene+MechanisM:

    Since we virtualize the python environment using virtualenv everything will work with Ubuntu 11.10 (we've tested it)

  • Web interface works fine but Liquidsoap config doesn't being generated.
    Icecast running fine with all needed mounts and at myhost/Preference/stream-setting I added right settings for all icecast mounts but when I save it: 

    Can not connect to the streaming server

    Problem with Liquidsoap...

    @João :

    change the ls_script to have music 24/24 with airtime
    (for random playlist)







    this one :





    #default = amplify(0.00001, noise())
    #default = rewrite_metadata([("artist","Airtime"), ("title", "offline")],default)






    by this one :





    music = playlist(mode='randomize',reload=1,reload_mode="rounds", "/srv/random/music/")
    jingles = playlist(mode='randomize',reload=1,reload_mode="rounds", "/srv/random/jingles/")
    default = rotate(weights=[1,5], [jingles, music])

    for example...
