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

How do we IN ADDITION pass updates to TuneIn: this is an HTTP GET string of the form

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.
