View Full Version : Now Playing in the Winamp Media Library
30th March 2006, 23:13
I have been having this problem that is just confusing me to fix. My stream is up and running fine, however, the now "Now Playing" collumn in the Winamp Media Library is black and remains blank. I've tried setting the /title command updating metadata but nothing seems to work. I'm running windows 2003 server and the scsrcCLI or the GUI(both do the samething). Also when accessing the http:// section, the now playing or last 10 played songs remain empty.
I've tried searching this forum up and down about this with no luck. Any ideas?

When using nsvscsrc, you need to throw /titles into the command.
As for GUIs, it depends on what gui you are using.

I've tried that before with no luck. I will try again.

Tried it, no dice. Still no title.

Ok, I figured it out. It has something to do with Running Shoutcast on a Windows 2003 box. I tested the server on XP machine, and it worked fine; titles and all. Not sure if this constitutes as a bug or not though.

I haven't had good luck with shoutcast on 2003 server. Anything over about 150k skips like mad. Aznv.tv reports the same problem.

Actually, I figured it out what was really going on, The ini file was currupted with little boxes in it. I found a clean file and made the necessary changes and it worked fine. The SC server still added the little boxes back, but it still works. Wierd though. No I'm having a problem using Slavas GUI keeping the source connected. I think I'm going to try Ken's with the access DBs. I am trying to contact them to get the source code. I want to program Ken's to work with MySQL.

If you decide that you want to code your own streamer, my NSVx may help. Download here: http://nsv.no-ip.com/downloads/NSVx.zip
Its an ActiveX control that you add to your program that takes a lot of the tedious programming out. You can just give it the server information and then feed it NSV file locations and it'll do the actual streaming. Look at the example source included to see how it works.

THis is great Ken however, I don't have a copy of VB on hand, although it is pretty neat.
