    CBC Canada track info plugin + PiCorePlayer + Jivelite

    Hi

    Does Paul Webster's CBC Canada track info plugin work with a Squeezelite player using piCorePlayer and Jivelite? I am having to use the CBC Music (Eastern) feed from Radionet as TuneIn no longer finds a CBC radio feed (I am in the UK, so guess it is geo-blocked), and no track or artist info is displayed.

    Thanks in advance.

    The plugin only supplies track/show information (by collecting it from their web site) - it is not involved in the streaming in any way.
    So if no track info is showing then it implies that either the stream URL is not recognised by the plugin or something else has broken (perhaps CA site has changed).

    I'll take a look.

    Edit:
    Just tried ...
    show name and image appears when trying by TuneIn (but the audio fails) ... so this implies that the data collection from their web site is working
    Tried with radio.net and the stream URL is http://cbcmp3.ic.llnwd.net/stream/cbcmp3_cbc_r2_iet ... which looks a bit different to what I check for (from memory)
    ... am about to check the code.

    Edit2:
    Is this Toronto?
    If it is then the stream URL used to have "tor" in it rather than "iet" which would explain things.

    Edit3:
    It is still TOR when you play via their web site ... so I'll add an alias for "iet".

    Version 0.0.5 uploaded
    - Add alternative stream URL for matching CBC Music Eastern

    I checked the other CBC Music stations in radio.net and their stream URLs seemed unchanged.

    Should be available from LMS plugin list over next few hours
