    Radio Paradise plugin 'now playing' info

    If I play the 'Mellow Mix' > 'FLAC regular stream', through the Radio Paradise plugin, the 'now playing' screen never refreshes, the music itself is fine. Mine is stuck on the same info for weeks, maybe months.
    The 'now playing' info on other 'Mellow Mix' streams (FLAC Interactive and AAC) is fine. On the 'Main' mixes the 'now playing' info is also fine.

    So, no big deal, I just select the 'Mellow mix - interactive' stream. But still curious, is anyone else seeing this?

    Yup the regular stream is stuck on Natalie Merchant. When I tried the interactive stream I noticed it restarted after a couple of minutes. I thought those issues would have been fixed by now.

    Can't reproduce this. I'm getting up to date meta data. Can you tell me
    what you'd get for https://api.radioparadise.com/api/now_playing?chan=1

    {"time":211,"artist":"Nick Drake","title":"River Man","album":"Five Leaves Left","year":"1969","cover":"https:\/\/img.radioparadise.com\/covers\/l\/B000026FOA.jpg","cover_med":"https:\/\/img.radioparadise.com\/covers\/m\/B000026FOA.jpg","cover_small":"https:\/\/img.radioparadise.com\/covers\/s\/B000026FOA.jpg"}

    So I went to check the Mellow mix - FLAC regular stream and ..... It now shows me Nick Drake.... Wut? Next song (John Mayall, Sensitive kind: great song!) did refresh correctly (albeit 15s early). Next song also refreshed

    Don't know what triggered this. I'm sure it has never worked for me, at least not after upgrading to LMS8. Updates to LMS8 (so reboots) and/or new player firmware did not change that. Always was stuck on 'Sweet' from 'Cigarettes After Sex'

    So don't know what happened but I'll keep an eye on it. Thanks for checking it. Love the plugin and use it a lot.

    Right now the 'Now Playing' info for the Mellow FLAC regular stream is 'stuck' again for at least a couple of hours. It is stuck on 'Ray LaMontagne, In My Own Way'. As before the other 'Mellow' streams are fine, as are all the main mixes.
    If I listen to something different and come back to the Mellow FLAC regular stream, I just see the above now playing info, the music itself is correct.

    https://api.radioparadise.com/api/now_playing?chan=1 gives me the correct song (that is currently playing). No update to the above version for either LMS or the Radio Paradise plugin.

    Still stuck on 'Ray LaMontagne, In My Own Way'.

    Maybe it has something to do with synced players, cause that doesn't seem to work with the Radio Paradise app?

    I have 2 synced players (both Touch), whenever I turn on the other from where I made the original Radio Paradise selection it always tells me something like: "can't open https stream for //radioparadise...." (don't remember exactly).

    Of course, that does work, I can navigate there through the menu and it plays perfectly and in sync with the other.

    And this only happens with Mellow? Can you enable logging for
    plugin.radioparadise and send me the resulting server.log.zip after a
    while that this happened? (and don't forget to turn off the logging
    afterwards).

    Yes, it only happens with Mellow and ONLY with the FLAC regular stream. FLAC interactive and the AAC streams are fine.
    Currently the 'now playing' info changed to 'Tom McRae, For The Restless', and is stuck at that for some time now, it's not the song that is playing

    I'll try to get a useful log.

    Log file with the Radio Paradise plugin in 'debug' mode is attached.

    Although I 'edited' it to make it even more clear when I switched streams, I didn't take anything out, this is all that's in the log.

    It looks like the Mellow mix, regular stream only looks at a (local) cache, while the interactive stream is actively polling.

    I don't want to complicate things, but maybe it has something to do with this.
    Like I wrote above, I have 2 synced players (both Touch), whenever I turn on the other from where I made the original Radio Paradise selection it always gives me a message on the display of the touch. Today it did that again, but unlike I wrote it says something like:"Can't open file for.." the rest is off screen and the message almost immediately disappears. Nothing in the log about it.

    Hope this helps, if you need more info, let me know.
