Doesn't show anything as in what, nothing in the "Metadata" tab of the Properties dialog?

Ah they use wma now. Thanks for this information!

BBC asx'es don't work. Console is silent.

E.g. http://bbc.co.uk/radio/listen/live/bbcleeds.asx

Code: [Select]
<ASX version="3.0">

Problem with previous mms-stream solved successfully in beta 3 (and with all of these, where %artist%=%title% like "NRJ - NRJ", "Montecarlo - Montecarlo"), but on one of our local mms-streams no artist is showed (in Metadata only Track title and Genre is showed, no Track Artist).

Not a valid XML file, contains invalid UTF-8 characters, please complain at the radio station admin.
Whether this will be fixed and how (there's no way to correctly display titles for such streams) depends on how widespread such cases are.

New bug incoming: when track title (of mms-streamed content) changes, player switches to next track in local playlist, not playing next track from mms-stream.

I find the same question too, if one track in a radio station finished, FB will switch to another radio station, but not the next track
in the same radio station she just played.
An example stream--mms://music.outboundmusic.com/OMRadioPop

Another case, the player will auto parse the dynamic track title and album(amazing good), but if I switch to another radio station,
the dynamic track information will remain unchanged which I want change back to the defined radio station name. It will helpful
when the radio station name is displayed.

PS: Why not add "update" or "link" in the menu "help"? I think it will useful.

Broken radio station: they provide 3 URLs, just one actually works, we need to decide which one to pick at the time the playlist is loaded (foobar2000 inherently does not support multiple URLs per playlist entry); we favor RTSP and MMS over HTTP. Their RTSP and MMS links don't work in Windows Media Player either.

Looking into it now, thanks.

Thanks, my testing wasn't complete enough,,, So that means, fb2k uses the first (RTSP OR MMS) it finds in a multiple entry playlist?

This is not a multiple entry playlist. There is just one entry, with 3 URLs to choose from. We have to pick one; RTSP is currently preferred over MMS and then over HTTP.

The alternative solution would be to try all of them until we find one that works - at the time the ASX playlist is being loaded - but this would slow ASX loading down for everybody.

Hello Peter, these days I tried FK2B 1.0 beta 4 to play steam, she runs well in most of situations, there are two issues--
firstly, the track-numbers can't been displayed, it will helpful using "sort" command when we array the playlists.
The second issue is that the title will display "gibberish" if the defined name contain "&" or "," . The example showed below:

As ASX aspires to be XML-like, I'm rather surprised that your &s are not &amp; entities.

Thanks you for your answer, and forgive my ignorance. I refer to the XML rules and find the answer.

The wma stream on http://www.thearrow.co.uk/ (http://mediaweb.musicradio.com/Show.asx?StreamID=167) appears to display the incorrect bit rate/refresh rate (or at least different from WMP, 48kHz vs 32kHz).

The wma stream on http://planetrock.radica.com/player/live.html (http://tx.sharp-stream.com/tune.php?c=planetrock&.wax) does not play and no error is printed. (the streams work after extracting the url)

This stream appears to decode to 48KHz here, not sure if there's anything wrong.

Fixed, thanks for reporting.

Here's a patch for 1.0 beta 4 with all Windows Media related bug fixes so far:
[removed, beta 5 is out]

The beta 5 is gift to us all on schedule, thank you so much, Peter!

I have noticed in the "Properties" dialog box, the radio stream address is treated as filename, so "open containing folder" is disable,
besides, the value of "artist name" and "track title" can't been edited. Futhermore,if the steam have multi Urls, they won't displayed totally.
If we wanna edit the values mentioned before, we have to open the file and edit them.

Another thread I want to say, the ASX filename can been displayed as filename, and the "title" and "author" treated as "track title" and "artist name", and stream address is treated as the metadata "REF1", "REF2", etc, in this way,we can edit the "track title" and "artist name" because asx-file can be edited, and the steam's multi Urls can display totally.

Another implement is the tracknumber can been displayed that mentioned before. I know few about stream, I refer to the msdn, I don't know if the "Playlist.attributeCount"
can carry out. http://msdn.microsoft.com/zh-cn/library/aa...-us,VS.85).aspx

Excuse me for my poor English.

Finally I found that stream world-wide available: http://cluster.quantumart.ru/broadcast/def...dia=station2000
Quantum Art is displayed as artist.
P.S. In metadata for radio stations (all in my case) no info is displayed. Should it be that way in beta5 (wasn't in beta 4)?

Hi Peter, all entries inside the asx of BBC streams like http://bbc.co.uk/radio/listen/live/r3.asx will be displayed in the playlist. Can you make fb2k handling the stream choice internally, but only display the "outside asx"?

The best wishes
Michael

It doesn't work that way for M3U playlists with multiple entries for the same stream, I don't see why this should be any different.

On the other hand, if that were a playlist with multiple URLs for a single entry, it would only display a single item, but it would only pick the first link when you add the ASX.
