Station name when listening in the car via Bluetooth

Hello,
I have rather a not ordinary question, so I'm not expecting to get much on this, but I'll give it a shot.

I am listening to my station (server version 1.9.8) in the car. The music play on iPad, Safari, and gets into the car speakers via car's Bluetooth connection. The car LCD shows the full URL to the stream, something like this: http://178.168.28.148:8002/listen.pls
Is it possible to do something so on the car display it would show something like station name, or track id instead of the URL?





Thanks a lot in advance.

you can try putting the station name in the stream url.

http://178.168.28.148:8002/;stream/OM%20Radio%202

or you can try creating a custom .pls file and include a custom title that might get passed through...

in your case it would look like this

code:

[playlist]
NumberOfEntries=1
File1=http://178.168.28.148:8002/;stream/OM%20Radio%202
Title1=OM Radio 2
Length1=-1
Version=2

Thanks a lot. This sounds like a solution worth testing. I'll get back with the results.
