Stream - notifier track titel change by mail

Post by Heartbeats » Thu Apr 19, 2018 5:24 am

Yo guys

I'm currently looking into getting radio toolbox to sent me a mail whenever the title of the current track is changed.

I've so far tried setting up a gmail & outlook mail op by.
I keep getting this notification whenever track is changing:

"RadioToolbox.Inspector.Station.StatsLock
Notifier thread {0} died"

Can anybody help me with experience with what certain mail serices that work properly with the program/SMTP

or is there anything in the code that is ruining it so it can't send changes.
Thanks so much in advance and let me know if there is any information missing:
Build - windows 10
Stream is function and correctly added as server which display the right tracks and so on.

Hi,

Most likely this is caused by the SMTP rejecting the message. Restrictions on SMTP have become more severe in recent times due to spammers.

I will add some code to Radio Toolbox to recognize these conditions and let you know of it. Right now the current release doesn't recognize when the SMTP server rejects the message and thinks everything is fine.

I'm testing with GMail at the moment and it does appear that GMail is rejecting my attempts to send notifications. Hopefully I can provide an answer to why this is soon.

Hi,

Regarding using GMail. I was able to use GMail SMTP just fine now.

It appears you have to use the TLS port (587) instead of the SSL port.

So in your notifier you should have it set to:
SMTP Server: smtp.gmail.com
SMTP Port: 587
Use SSL: Checked.

Edit: Also to note, if you use two factor authentication you will have to use an Application Password generated from your account.

Any chance for incorporating "volume / blank detection" in the nearest future as a tool for mail notification?

Hi,

Its listed in the Notifier's dialog as "Audio Check Result Change".

There isn't a template for it so you'll have to write your own.

The variables are:
%_STATION_AUDIO_CHECK_SUCCESS_% - Replaces with "Success" or "Failure"
%_STATION_AUDIO_DBV_RIGHT_% - dBV Right
%_STATION_AUDIO_DBV_LEFT_% - dBV Left
%_STATION_AUDIO_CHECK_INTERVAL_% - Interval
%_STATION_AUDIO_DBV_MINIMUM_% - dBV minimum

Something to be aware of is that Radio Toolbox will not throttle notifications so make sure you set a reasonably high check interval. If you set it to say 1 second, then this could trigger a notification event every 1 second which could quickly become a problem with your email provider.
