    Applying live stream info to favorites

    Hi,

    Is there a way to display the live stream info & icon to a radio stream stored under favorites? For example:

    The station https://jbradio2.ca/

    has a great flac stream at

    http://stream.jbradio2.ca:8888/flac

    but this doesn't automatically pick up and display metadata, which is available from:

    https://jbradio2.com/web/web/playing.php?

    It would be great to be able to display this info on the fly, like triode/bpa do for the BBC plugin. Is this possible by clever editing of the favorites file?

    While there are a few standard and metadata can be embedded in the stream, metadata is often outside the stream to "encourage" listeners to play the web site and see ads etc. Does any other player show the metadata (e.g VLC)

    Favorites does nothing except bookmark the URL. Unless the metadata is in the stream - it won't be displayed - no "option" in Favorites will change that.

    BBCiplayer plugin is specially developed to display BBC metadata data made available on different non playing URLs. You may be mixing up URL parameters with Favorites as BBCiPlayer uses special URL parameters to assist with metadata.

    There are a few other plugin which do similar for other stations (e.g. FIP) - obtain metadata from non stream source.

    They do embed meta info in their MP3 stream

    Try that and see if you can hear much of a difference in the sound

    but I use the station as a TuneIn favourite and that gives the Album art as well.
