Full Version: Radio stream not updating song information (title, artist)

Hi there!

When listening to an internetradio-stream, the song information of the "currently playing song" is only updated once, when entering the music visualisation screen.
Is there a way to update this information as soon as the song changes?
I tried the Radio Addon and also TuneIn. No luck with both.
I'm using OSMC on a Raspberry Pi, Version is "OSMC September, 2015.09-2" (Kodi 15.1).

Any help would be appreciated Smile

Greetings,

Hi sbolz,

I have been experiencing the same issue since XMBCbuntu v13 (Gotham) with some radio streams. Note that v13 is the first release I have added m3u's with radio stream URL's, so I am not using any add-ons to play streams; I use the default Music Player. Currently I am using Kodibuntu v15.1 (Isengard). Once I start streaming the initial song's information is displayed but after that when the next songs start the initial song information is still displayed.

Streams that give me problems with updating song information are actually all PinguinRadio.com streams:
Code:
http://pr 320.pinguinradio.com/listen.pls
http://pc192.pinguinradio.com/listen.pls
http://po192.pinguinradio.com/listen.pls
http://as192.pinguinradio.com/listen.pls

Note that in Windows Media Player (v12) the song information is updated for these streams.

I am unable to find out what the differences are as opposed to an mp3-stream working in Kodi like:

Maybe you can post your specific stream(s) triggering your issue on here so forum members have same information to start with.
