Play Now Info Missing

Post by DancePassionFL » Wed Feb 14, 2018 9:14 am

Hi,
I install steamcast with no problem, just the play now info is missing.
Is any options or settings to make that info visible.
With icecast I have no problems you can check at:

Hi,

The playing now information is provided by the encoder. It should already be there.

What exactly are you trying to do?

Yes Max you are correct. I install again I tried BUT and MB Recaster, both times the result is the same.
I am missing something, because with IceCast the player display the name of the song, with Steamcast does not.

Here is a screenshot of Back End with IceCast:

Here is a screenshor of Front End with IceCast:

Here is a screenshoot of Back End SteamCast:
https://prnt.sc/if9nm0

Here is a screensoot of Front End with SteamCast:
https://prnt.sc/if9nw2

The info of song is not display.

I really want to use the SteamCast.

Ok, so this is most likely do to that "front end" script looking for the Icecast stats sheet instead of pulling Steamcast's stat sheet.

Do you have the code to that "front end"?

Hi Ivan,

You will need to modify your scripts to pull their stats from either /status.json or /status.xml select the appropriate file for your parsing needs Steamcast supports both JSON and XML processing.

The structure of the JSON or XML file will absolutely different from what Icecast2 sends so you will need to make modifications to your scripts to find the right target. If you want us to do this work for you we can quote you a price for our time to make the changes.

Alterantively we have an example PHP script that works perfectly with Steamcast.

You can apply it to your own website by following the examples in the following thread:

Let us know if you have any other questions.
