Description

Would it be possible to create an audio stream with metatdata from the EPG so Title, Subtitle, Description... etc appear in the client, in a similar way to streaming radio stations ?
I'm using Squeezeserver to receive VDR radio streams with Streamdev which works well - apart from the lack of EPG info.

This URL explains a way of doing it SHOUTcast/Icecast style (not sure if Squeeze uses it but seems likely) :

I guess your are using HTTP streaming? Which format are you using (TS, externremux, ...)?

#2 Updated by keynet about 2 years ago

I'm using elementary streams (I think these are the only ones that work in this use case).
A typical URL looks like:

I have found a solution!

Carsten Gross developed something called ts2shout, and I worked with him to test/debug it with VDR/streamdev. It works best via his documented Apache solution - I modified/tested the Externremux script to try and use it directly but the metadata does not appear and the audio is interrupted, and a few other issues.

However the Apache solution works well with LMS, I use a dedicated vhost to activate ts2shout - it uses no measurable CPU when streaming. I get program title and description
