    Stream from LMS TO (not from) Icecast?

    I found this ancient post

    http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.php/Stream_to_Icecast

    Does anyone have a more up to date approach to this and one which does not limit to stream.mp3? Something other than a sound card input and preferably something that can update metadata? I suppose I’m looking for a “bridge” type arrangement

    A simple solution would be to pipe squeezelite's PCM output to ffmpeg (e.g. ffmpeg -c:a flac -content_type application/ogg [...] icecast://). This will lose the metadata, so you'll need to send metadata updates out-of-band with a script
    Various SW: Web Interface | TUI | Playlist Editor / Generator | Music Classification | Similar Music | Announce | EventTrigger | Chiptunes | LMSlib2go | ...
    Various HowTos: build a self-contained LMS | Bluetooth/ALSA | Control LMS with any device | ...

    Thanks I’ll investigate ffmpeg
    I’m not sure about the script for metadata but someone must have an example
