  • hello everybody

    // can someone tell my why the icecast status displays the artist's name twice at the line of "Current Song" if I send mp3 stream?
    // it works fine with ogg/vorbis stream ...

    Thank you for anybody's answer.

  • Hello,

    Out of curiousity, if you do "sudo service airtime-playout restart" from the terminal (this will halt playout for a few seconds), does the format stay that way?

  • hello Martin,

    Thank you for your attention...
    unfortunatelly the format (artist name - artist name - song title) still the same.

    Do you (or anybody else) have another idea(s) to solve this "little" problem (which can makes me headache) :)

    // I would like to use the info from icecast as "now playing" ... so I need to display it in the correct way



    Thank you!
  • Anybody? ... please drop me a crumb where to start the investigation ... please!
  • I'll try and help you, but I need a little more information.

    First what button do you have selected under "Stream Label" in the "Streams" page?

    Second, you mentioned it happens when you have an mp3 stream. Is it only with mp3 streams?

  • Dear Martin,

    Thank you for your attention and time.

    I played a bit with the Stream Label options and find some strange thing.

    When I change between the 3 options ("Artist - Title" / "Show - Artist - Title" / "Station name - Show name") I always got the same results like "Artist - Artist - Title"

    but if I check the "Icecast Vorbis Metadata :" option enabled/disabled (during every change in the Stream Label ... because without this the Stream Label changeing always stayed in the last used output) and change the "Stream Label:" than it will be changed the output as I listed below ... which is strange as it is mp3 and not OGG/VORBIS

    At the Stream Label
    1// if I choose "Artist - Title"
    - than the Icecast's Current Song looks like: "Artist - Artist - Title"

    2// if I choose "Show - Artist - Title"
    - than the Icecast's Current Song looks like: "Show - Artist - Show - Artist - Title"

    3// if I choose "Station name - Show name"
    - than the Icecast's Current Song looks like: "Station name - Station name - Show name"

    Please help me! Thank you in advance!

    And yes ... it is only happens when I use mp3 stream. But I have to use that.

    If what you say is true, then we have a bug on our hands. We'll take a look into if we can reproduce this and get back to you.

  • I was able to reproduce this and created a ticket here:


    This is now fixed and will be available in Airtime 2.1.4/2.2

  • Thank you Martin.

    May I grab the time to ask you if you know any simple solution for displaying the
    "Current Song: Artist - Title" on a website,
    like the AirTime's widgets do with the shows?

  • This is something very similar to the way the widgets do. I'd suggest you take a quick look at the widget code and modify them to do exactly as you need.

  • Okay thank you, but please can you let me know what do I have to modify exactly if i want to display the current song's informations like: Artist Name & Song Title against the name of the current show which works perfectly with the "Now Playing" widget option.
