Using a script to upload metadata
To upload metadata after configuring your encoder, you may:
- configure Edcast or other software (click here)
- provide the URL of a script that supplies the text to be displayed (for our Flash player only)
- upload information (where you or WinAmp, SamBroadcaster etc, know what you are broadcasting) to the server using the script below.
Actions to be carried out
Simply perform a GET request to the following URL:
the "radio" parameter is the mount point, e.g. yourfmradio-64.mp3
The "password" parameter is the password supplied in "Webmediastats access link"
the "push" parameter is the metadata that you wish to have displayed
The URL is available from your management interface by going to Radio -> Configuration -> Additional Info .
For developers coding their own player, there are various libraries available to fetch and display the uploaded information, as such data is sent as part of the stream data. The other option is to retrieve the stream info on the server itself. We can provide you with a script for this purpose. Please feel free to get in touch with us (click here) to request this.
