Metadata livestream

Post by Radiofreak » 06 Aug 2020 22:10

We have a live program that we bring in via a live stream. Now in the player there is the program name that is sent by the stream. Only it will not be forwarded to the encoder. What can I do to send the metadata thrue?

The LineIn feed takes over a signal from a defined mixer input channel.
As this is pure audio, there is of course no meta data associated with this signal.
Thus no automatic song title updates might happen on the LineIn feed.

But you can manually define a song title and set in in the Application.OnLineInFeedON resp. Application.OnLineInFeedOFF event!

The you need to set the title format of the Streaming Server accordingly.
The ‘T’ title update won’t work with the LoadPlaylist mode.

When you want to set the same 'Title' for an entire program (i.e. nit use the individual tracks to update the song title), you might use the following control-commands and program events:

On Program Started:
STREAMING_SETSONGTITLEFORMAT ${programname}
or
STREAMING_SETSONGTITLEFORMAT ${programdescription}
or
STREAMING_SETSONGTITLEFORMAT My fixed text to use

At the end of the program you might revert this to the default:
On Program Stopping/Stopped:
STREAMING_SETSONGTITLEFORMAT ${trackname}
