OGG streaming

Post by ExIT_FM » 26 May 2019 22:33

Hi Bernd,

Is it possible to streaming OGG in quality mode (e.g. Q10) instead of VBR or CBR?

No, currently only CBR and VBR are possible to configure, but I can also add an option to use the QualityMode in a future release.

That would be great, because in quality mode we could stream at ~500kbps instead of 320.
Thank you in advance.

I have provided a v4.0.5.37-Beta (so "Check for Beta-Versions..." to update).
This contains a new encoder profile option for the OGG encoder to define a Quality-Mode instead of CBR/VBR.

Thanks for adding this option, I just tried it and unfortunately it streams in CBR 128kbps.
If I choose e.g. Q10 and save the profile, when I open it again, it's Q4 ~128kbps again.
Also checked the stream's icy stuff, what SAM sends to the server in quality mode is on the left side, and PFOA is on the right side also in quality mode.

One more thing that I discovered now. It's not a big thing but I'll be very happy if you can fix it.

STREAMING_SETSONGTITLE2 Artist=David|Title=Test|Servername=Test

This command doesn't change the artist and title fields in the stream.
I haven't tried MP3 or any other formats, I'm using OGG.

Edit: I was wrong. It updates the informations but puts everything in the Title field of the stream. ("Cím" means Title)

I assume, that your are using an ICEcast server - correct?
And an ICEcast server only supports a single 'SongTitle' string to be updated (which is build according to your given songtitle format out of your given attributed - probably you used a format ${title} - ${artist}?).

When using a SHOUTcast v2 server on the other hand, each meta data field would be updated individually.

I am also not sure, what you expect AIMP (which is 'just' a media player) to display? - maybe this is an issue to discuss with these guys?
