No, this is currently not possible, as ProppFRexx takes the tag data directly from the Audiofiles by default.
But you can also set it manually instead via the STREAMING_SETSONGTITLE control-command.

But if needed (please explain, why you want to do so), I might add a related macro-function, which reads the content from a given file.

Why this? All Streaming Servers support UTF-8 norwadaus. Else you could still TAG your tracks accordingly?

But as said, I might add a file read macro.

I know, but Czech diacritics is different :(( If I play song, ex. Karel Gott - Když muž se ženou snídá... On stream server displayed: Karel Gott - Kdy? mu? se ?enou snídá and I need to see: Karel Gott - Kdyz muz se zenou snida.

If you could add a macro, it would be fine. Utility for convert I have: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1966

I can add that option, but as said, most modern streaming servers today support UTF-8 song titles, which support any language ;-)
An din UTF-8 that title would be displayed as Karel Gott - Když muž se ženou snídá...

I streaming via shoutcast at beatzone.eu and radioo.cz and this has never happened to me :( That's why I'd rather avoid the diacritics.
I'm not talking about RDS :)

I have provided a new v4.0.5.9-beta version (please use "Check for Beta-Versions..." in the help menu at the very top right).

The version offers 2 new macro functions:
1) *[FILE:{pathandfilename}]
Returns the entire content of a given file referenced by pathandfilename.
Example:
*[FILE:{C:\Temp\test.txt}]

2) *[STRING:{value}:{conv}:{p1}:{p2}]
Returns a new string which is formatted according to a given conv function.
Example 1:
*[STRING:{${trackname}}:{norm}]

Both macro-functions can be used in the Title format settings in the streaming settings.

Super. I just can not find it. The scroll menu does not offer anything. Can you advise me on the exact course please?

I am not sure what you mean?! What scroll-menu are you talking about - if it is the list of predefined format examples, you find it, as these are only most commonly used examples. You can still type whatever valid song title format as you like into the box!
Please take a look to the appendix of the user menu or use the exact sample as provided above.
I am not sure what else should be missing...
