ogg stream meta int / stream title?

Post by MikeThomson »


i am currently developing and audio player. Playing mp3 streams work great. I also can read the metadata information to recieve the title. But i cannot handle ogg vorbis streams.

If i read an mp3 stream i get an "icy-metaint" so i now where to split the stream and read the metadata. If i connect to an ogg vorbis stream there is no "icy-metaint"

How can i read the song title?

The song information is embedded in the ogg tags, they come in as part of the stream unlike the icy meta data method. So you have to parse the stream.
