View Full Version : Missing titles in .m3u internet radio stream

I'm playing an ambient music radio stream over the internet. It's been playing now for about 6 hours in the background whilst I've been playing Half Life 2.

I just went in the lounge to check the title of a track I quite liked, but notice that the track titles are just urls. ie. I can press right-arrow for more info on the now-playing track, but there are three pieces of info:

Format: mp3
Title: http://eer-music.com/WEER/AMBIENT BLISS/SeaofBliss DonSlepian.mp3
Url: http://eer-music.com/WEER/AMBIENT BLISS/SeaofBliss DonSlepian.mp3

Looking at the m3u file, it just contains a list of urls, without any #EXTINF definitions.

I was wondering if (as an enhancement) Slimserver could tidy the title up, if there is no specific title gathered from the file info. eg. simply reporting the title as "SeaofBilss DonSlepian" would be a little neater.

That's a good suggestion. Can you add it to our enhancement/bug
database at bugs.slimdevices.com?

Thanks,
