Audio stream metadata

I was wondering if it is possible to read the metadata from an audio stream using Titanium.Media.AudioPlayer, or maybe there is module that allows for this?

    • Nope, nothing. However, a "solution" is to fetch information from a feed.

  • The famous Matt Gallagher Audio Streamer Class, which is used by Appcelerator and many others, to stream Shoutcast on iOS has a fork at https://github.com/DigitalDJ/AudioStreamer which can fetch metadata of the current artist and title from a Shoutcast stream as the demo shows. BUT - how one would be able to integrate it into an Appcelerator project is another matter.

    Matt's class is contained in build's of iOS projects (look in build->Classes->AudioStreamer) but you'd need to be adapt at Objective-C to be able to hack the DigitalDJ AudioStreamer class and expose the required output to Appcelerator's AudioPlayer.

    An interesting project for someone!
