Reading text from Shoutcast server
« on: June 22, 2023, 04:18:10 pm »
Somebody asked for a way how to read the 'now playing' text from the Shoutcast server.

There's more methods available but the simplest one is to read the text from the Shoutcast Stream Status page, which is usually available via http://...the server address here...:8000

In the web browser, open such page, select View source and locate the text. Then tell the Magic RDS 4 where the desired text is located. A working sample is attached below.

Is there an option to this from Icecast?
