Missing information on internet radio
#1
I have been using pvr ipt simple client for internet radio since today

The stations that I have set with a m3u list can also be played.
But what is not shown is the title information (artist - song).

Is the addon or on the m3u list?

With the VLC all information is displayed

There was this addon which may relate to this, but I don't know what its current status is. Maybe @black_eagle can comment as it was his creation.

I submitted a PR for v18 that works well for me 15695 (PR)  It was never made clear why it never moved forward, but I will be rebasing it for v19.  I find its is hard to get things approved that Kodi Team is not interested in.

I have "
script.streaming.radio.helper "installed but the information from the stream is still not displayed.

Can someone help me with the configuration using "Radio Paradise"?


Code:
#EXTINF:0 radio="true" tvg-logo="https://radioparadise.com/rpassets/images/logo/icon_flat_black_padded_62x50.png" group-title="Internet Radio",Radio Paradise Rock (Flac)

Well, the only metadata in that stream is Radio Paradise Rock Mix (flac) - playlist: radioparadise.com so that is all there is for Kodi to display which it does if you open the url directly.  No clue about what happens with IPTV simple client as I don't use it at all.

That cannot be all.
If you open the stream with the VLC, the composer and title are displayed

If you set up a strm file and access it directly rather than via IPTV simple, does that work better?

See Internet video and audio streams (wiki) on the wiki for more details on how to do that.

Also from this page - https://radioparadise.com/listen/stream-links in relation to the FLAC links, such as the one quoted above:

Quote:These links currently do not currently include stream metadata (song title info). Not our choice. We would if we could.

FLAC playback is only supported by some players. If your player requires you to go through TuneIn or vTuner to add stations, then our links will not work. They will also not work in iTunes. Player limitations like those are entirely out of our hands.

So I would wonder if you're using one of the other stream types on VLC rather than FLAC? Maybe try one of those on IPTV Simple and see if you get more info?

PVR addon streams don't go through through the same http logic that strm files do which can detect icy metadata  that is why I created my PR.  flac files might contain icy data but it is possible that they also contain ogg metadata too from time to time and maybe vlc sees that.

I did indeed try it in VLC, with the same result I got opening as an strm file in Kodi.

You're right.
If the link is entered directly into VLC, it does not show anything.

But with the m3u list, yes.

That playlist contains a mix of flac and mp3, perhaps you are playing the mp3 streams.

I loaded the following into iptv.simple

#EXTINF:0 radio="true" tvg-logo="https://radioparadise.com/rpassets/images/logo/icon_flat_black_padded_62x50.png" group-title="Internet Radio",Radio Paradise Eclectic Mix (mp3-192)
http://stream.radioparadise.com/eclectic-192

and here is how it looks with my PR https://imgur.com/faE5Ku9
