Does your encoding software support reading .txt files?

If so just point the software at the nowplaying.txt file and you should get metadata/song info showing up.

Just out of interest what are you using to encode?

I use now the Shoutcast DSP plugin for testin. I have SamCast, but that software does not work well. Do you have a sugestion for other encode software that can read txt files?
