Title: support artwork in ICY
Post by: philippe44 on 2019-04-29 04:50:20
Hi - I've you considered using the artwork URL that can be sent as part of ICY metadata update? It's like the title tag, but identified by the following:
Code: [Select]
StreamURL='<some_url>'
Cheers

not familiar with ICY (Shoutcast?) but if that artwork has an associated tag in the metadata, couldn't you just specify that tag in the Artwork definition for whatever cover type it is?

No, I think they're suggesting the use of the real-time metadata URL field for individual track covers hosted by the streaming service, or anything else they point the arbitrary URLs at.

That's correct. Using shoutcast and mp3 or aac, some metadata can be injected in the data stream, every N bytes. It's used for webradios. The shoutcast specs specifies StreamTitle='<artist>-<title>'; but a few are extending that by adding StreamTitle='<artist>-<title>';StreamUrl='<url>';

And I meant in my 1st post "have you" not "I've you" ...  ::)
