Now Playing plugin and multiple simultaneous updates

We would need to use the Now Playing plugin to pass metadata updates to our Icecast 2 server, which presumably is handled by the HTTP Request config.


In any event it is of the form

http://192.168.1.10:8000/admin/metadata?mount=/mystream&mode=updinfo&song=ACDC+Back+In+Black


How do we IN ADDITION pass updates to TuneIn: this is an HTTP GET string of the form
GET http://air.radiotime.com/Playing.ashx?partnerId=&partnerKey=&id=&title=Bad+Romance&artist=Lady+Gaga


Both formats can also handle an "album" term, which we would also need to use.


Thanks in advance!

Hi Richard,


You can use {{album}} to output the album name.


Unfortunately, only 1 HTTP request can be sent. The only thing I can recommend (if you can do it technically) is to set up an HTTP server on your machine to act as a proxy and forward the data to both web servers.

OK, I can work with that, though a future option to do multiple updates would be great, especially if we were streaming to two servers, eg low and high bitrate.
