Radio Streams - getting track titles/show name

Postby Clumpco » Wed Jan 28, 2009 10:04 pm

Hi,

I have just discovered the web radio streaming facility - great!
I listen to a Shoutcast station and my PC client picks up the show name and the track titles. Is there any way for PMS to do this ?

TIA

At the moment PMS decodes the mp3 stream and forwards it to the PS3 as a PCM-stream, I dont think the PCM stream can contain information about track name and such.

If you streamed the MP3 stream directly to the PS3 instead then the stream might contain that data. But I've tested with TVersity and the PS3 doesnt seem to pick up on tracknames inside the stream then either.

Maybe if PMS did that it could send a "fake" filename or ID3 data?
