album art in streaming meta data?

Post by akula169 »

is it possible to include album art in the metadata for a mpeg stream?

I currently use ices0 (with a heavily customized perl mod) for my radio station. Album/Artist info is working without issue.

I guess in the end i'm hoping to have the album art displayed in the iTunes "Now Playing" section, much like it does when playing local files.

From a technical standpoint it is possible but not with current tools. Most players wouldn't even support it anyhow. The only universal way would be through ID3v2 however most players do not support instream ID3v2 tags.
