  • Does SHOUTcast send BPM?

    I was wondering if the SHOUTcast DNAS sends the BPM of the currently playing song either through a xml page or through the icy-metadata. I am making a player that beats to the beat of the song and it would be helpful to be able to read the BPM of the current song.

    Currently I am using the Winamp SHOUTcast source DSP as the stream source.

    not unless you're using the 2.x protocol and the source is providing the bpm information in the in-stream metadata (which the Source DSP will not do). it is spec'd as per but is optional and unless your player knows how to handle things, then nothing else out there will use it.
