Title update

Hi there,

I enabled title update on my Shoutcast source, but the window stays blank and on Shoutcast.com there's no 'now playing'. Can anyone tell me what's wrong???

Is "Auto" checked next to the "Title" box?
Also check your password. It may only contain letters Aa-Zz and numbers 0-9, nothing else (no spaces or anything else!). If you are running a DSP stacker such as MuchFX (these are used to enable more then one DSP at a time) then try running without it and see if that helps. Finally if you made changes to the .ini/.conf file other then MaxUser, PortBase, Password, AdminPassword then there is a possibility that one of those settings is causing you some problems.

Thanx a lot,

Your tip about MuchFX was the right one. I had it running because I wanted to combine Shoutcast and 'Rocksteady'. Do you have any idea how I can both running without MuchFX???

Greetings, Rob

good call

Good call on the update problem with MuchFX. I am having trouble installing the recommended DSP Stacker, tho. What directory does it need to be installed to? It just doesn't show up in my DSP list of plugins....

Yeah their installer is setup for SAM. You will need to find where it installed the files and move them to the plugins folder of Winamp (by default: C:/Program Files/Winamp/Plugins) and restart Winamp.

i got my shoutcast server up and running fine, but its not sending any song title or contact information (aim/icq/irc) to listeners.

on the server window i see my broadcaster sending the contact information to the server, but then it doesn't show up on this page:
http://www.shoutcast.com/directory/?...e&numresult=25
all the listeners see is the station title (u lose radio), which i can either set on the server or from the broadcaster.

i've tried all kinds of things, disabling station title on the server, changing my title all around on the client, unchecking "auto" for title and url, writing stuff in there, filling out all fields, etc etc.

can anyone think of anything that may help?

here is my setup:
shoutcast dnas server latest version running on winXP.
winamp broadcaster plugin running on the SAME machine.
this machine has 2 IPs, a dynamic IP address from a cox.net cable modem, and a static IP address for my home network.
i specify to use the dynamic IP address in the server config file.
changed port to 1337

i have tried broadcasting to localhost and to my dynamic IP address, they both work but neither fixed the problem.

thanks!

Set your SrcIP to ANY if you changed it.

title format is not what you think it is. It does not do anything with the song title. Recomment that section and try again. Also it might help if you posted a link to your server.

i reccommented that one line, and titles show for all 2.8 users that log into my stream... but not for 2.7 users interestingly enough...

which is kinda confusing, but atleast the problem isn't on my end now...

I have been having a similar set of problems, but none of the suggested methods for solving the problem have worked for me.

I have changed AutoDumpUsers to 1... I tried changing it back, killing the server, disconnecting the dsp, and then starting the server, connecting the dsp, and pressing play.

On that note, is there any way to send winamp and the sc_serv.exe processes to the background so I don't have to look at it all day?

The more important issue for me is to show the "Now Playing" section on shoutcast. Please help... for me it means $$$...

Here's my .ini file, and no, my pass isn't really youwish... or youreallywish for that matter.

could it have something to do with the ID3v1 tags in my actual files?

; SHOUTcast Distributed Network Audio Server configuration file
; Copyright (C) 1998-2002 Nullsoft, Inc.
; All Rights Reserved.
; Last modified Jan 16 2002

; If you want to manage multiple configurations, just copy
; this file to another name, and run sc_serv with that name
; such as:
; sc_serv.exe sc_leet.conf

; ***************************
; Required stuff
; ***************************

; MaxUser. The maximum number of simultaneous listeners allowed.
; Compute a reasonable value for your available upstream bandwidth (i.e. if
; you have 256kbps upload DSL, and want to broadcast at 24kbps, you would
; choose 256kbps/24kbps=10 maximum listeners.) Setting this value higher
; only wastes RAM and screws up your broadcast when more people connect
; than you can support.
MaxUser=32

; Password. While SHOUTcast never asks a listener for a password, a
; password is required to broadcast through the server, and to perform
; administration via the web interface to this server. This server should
; consist of only letters and numbers, and is the same server your broadcaster
; will need to enter in the SHOUTcast Source Plug-in for Winamp. THIS VALUE
; CANNOT BE BLANK.
Password=youwish

; PortBase. This is the IP port number your server will run on. The
; value, and the value + 1 must be available. If you get a fatal error when
; the DNAS is setting up a socket on startup, make sure nothing else on the
; machine is running on the same port (telnet localhost portnumber -- if you
; get connection refused then you're clear to use that port). Ports < 1024
; may require root privledges on *nix machines. The default port is 8000.
PortBase=8000

; ***************************
; Optional Parameters
; ***************************

; ***************************
; Logging configuration
; ***************************

; LogFile: file to use for logging. Can be '/dev/null' or 'none'
; or empty to turn off logging. The default is ./sc_serv.log
; on *nix systems or sc_serv_dir\sc_serv.log on win32.
; Note: on win32 systems if no path is specified the location is
; in the same dir as the executable, on *nix systems it is in the
; current directory.
LogFile=sc_serv.log

; RealTime displays a status line that is updated every second
; with the latest information on the current stream (*nix and win32
; console systems only)
RealTime=1

; ScreenLog controls whether logging is printed to the screen or not
; on *nix and win32 console systems. It is useful to disable this when
; running servers in background without their own terminals. Default is 1
ScreenLog=1

; ShowLastSongs specifies how many songs to list in the /played.html
; page. The default is 10. Acceptable entries are 1 to 20.
ShowLastSongs=10

; TchLog decides whether or not the DNAS logfile should track yp
; directory touches. Adds and removes still appear regardless of
; this setting.
; Default is yes
TchLog=yes

; WebLog decides whether or not hits to http:// on this DNAS will
; be logged. Most people leave this off because the DSP plug-in
; uses http:// calls to update titles and get the listener count,
; which takes up a lot of log space eventually. If you want to
; see people making hits on your admin.cgi or index pages, turn
; this back on. Note that this setting does NOT affect XML stats
; counters for hits to http:// pages.
; Default is no.
; WebLog=no

; W3CEnable turns on W3C Logging. W3C logs contain httpd-like accounts
; of every track played for every listener, including byte counts those listeners
; took. This data can be parsed with tools like Analog and WebTrends, or given
; to third parties like Arbitron and Measurecast for their reporting systems.
; Default is Yes (enabled).
W3CEnable=Yes

; W3CLog describes the name of the logfile for W3C logging. Default logfile is
; sc_w3c.log, in the same directory wherever the DNAS gets started from.
W3CLog=sc_w3c.log


; ***************************
; Network configuration
; ***************************

; SrcIP, the interface to listen for source connections on (or to make relay
; connections on if relaying). Can and usually will be ANY or 127.0.0.1
; (Making it 127.0.0.1 will keep other machines from being able to
; broadcast using your shoutcast server )
SrcIP=ANY

; DestIP, IP to listen for clients on (and to contact yp.shoutcast.com)
; can and usually will be be ANY. If your machine has multiple IP addresses,
; set this to the one you want it to be accessed by.
DestIP=ANY

; Yport, port to connect to yp.shoutcast.com on. For people behind caching
; webproxies, change this to the alternate port (666 is what it might be,
; check www.shoutcast.com if you have problems). Otherwise, leave this at 80.
; We're actively working on re-opening port 666, but as of release the only
; working port is port 80.
Yport=80

; NameLookups. Specify 1 to perform reverse DNS on connections.
; This option may increase the time it takes to connect to your
; server if your DNS server is slow. Default is 0 (off).
NameLookups=0

; RelayPort and RelayServer specify that you want to be a relay server.
; Relay servers act as clients to another server, and rebroadcast.
; Set RelayPort to 0, RelayServer to empty, or just leave these commented
; out to disable relay mode.
; RelayPort=8000
; RelayServer=192.168.1.58

; ***************************
; Server configuration
; ***************************

; AdminPassword. This password (if specified) changes the
; behavior of Password to be a broadcast-only password, and
; limits HTTP administration tasks to the password specified
; here. The broadcaster, with the password above, can still
; log in and view connected users, but only the AdminPassword
; will grant the right to kick, ban, and specify reserve hosts.
; The default is undefined (Password allows control for both
; source and admin)
AdminPassword=youreallywish

; AutoDumpUsers controls whether listeners are disconnected if the source
; stream disconnects. The default is 0.
AutoDumpUsers=1

; AutoDumpSourceTime specifies how long, in seconds, the source stream is
; allowed to be idle before the server disconnects it. 0 will let the source
; stream idle indefinately before disconnecting. The default is 30.
AutoDumpSourceTime=30

; ContentDir specifies the directory location on disk of where to stream
; on-demand content from. Subdirectories are supported as of DNAS 1.8.2.
; Default is ./content, meaning a directory named content in the same directory
; as where sc_serv was invoked from.
ContentDir=./content

; IntroFile can specify a mp3 file that will be streamed to listeners right
; when they connect before they hear the live stream.
; Note that the intro file MUST be the same samplerate/channels as the
; live stream in order for this to work properly. Although bitrate CAN
; vary, you can use '%d' to specify the bitrate in the filename
; (i.e. C:\intro%d.mp3 would be C:\intro64.mp3 if you are casting at 64kbps).
; The default is no IntroFile
; IntroFile=c:\intro%d.mp3

; BackupFile can specify a mp3 file that will be streamed to listeners over
; and over again when the source stream disconnects. AutoDumpUsers must be
; 0 to use this feature. When the source stream reconnects, the listeners
; are rejoined into the live broadcast.
; Note that the backup file MUST be the same samplerate/channels as the
; live stream in order for this to work properly. Although bitrate CAN
; vary, you can use '%d' to specify the bitrate in the filename
; (i.e. C:\backup%d.mp3 would be C:\backup32.mp3 if you are casting at 32kbps).
; The default is no BackupFile
; BackupFile=C:\intro%d.mp3

; TitleFormat specifies a format string for what title is sent to the listener.
; For example, a string of 'Justin Radio' forces the title 'Justin Radio' even
; when the source changes the title. You can use up to one '%s' in the string
; which lets you contain the title from the source. For example, if your
; TitleFormat is 'Justin Radio: %s', and the source plug-in's title is
; 'Billy plays the blues', then the net title is
; 'Justin Radio: Billy plays the blues'. Note: only works on non-relay servers.
; The default is no format string.
TitleFormat=Student Music - %s

; URLFormat specifies a format string for what url is sent to the listener.
; Behaves like TitleFormat (see above).
; The default is no format string.
; URLFormat=http://www.server.com/redirect.cgi?url=%s

; PublicServer can be always, never, or default (the default, heh)
; Any setting other than default will override the public status
; of the source plug-in or of a SHOUTcast server that is being relayed.
PublicServer=default

; AllowRelay determines whether or not other SHOUTcast servers will be
; permitted to relay this server. The default is Yes.
AllowRelay=no

; AllowPublicRelay, when set to No, will tell any relaying servers not
; to list the server in the SHOUTcast directory (non-public), provided
; the relaying server's Public flag is set to default. The default is
; Yes.
AllowPublicRelay=Yes

; MetaInterval specifies how often, in bytes, metadata sent.
; You should really leave this at the default of 8192, but the option is
; provided anyway.
MetaInterval=8192

; *****************************
; Access Control
; *****************************

; ListenerTimer is a value in minutes of maximum permitted time for
; a connected listener. If someone is connected for longer than this
; amount of time, in minutes, they are disconnected. When undefined,
; there is no limit defined. Default is undefined.
; ListenerTimer=600

; BanFile is the text file sc_serv reads and writes to/from
; for the list of clients prohibited to connect to this
; server. It's automatically generated via the web
; interface.
; BanFile=sc_serv.ban

; RipFile is the text file sc_serv reads and writes to/from
; for the list of client IPs which are *ALWAYS* permitted
; to connect to this server (useful for relay servers).
; This file is automatically generated via the web
; interface. Note that if your server is FULL, and someone
; from a Reserved IP connects, the DNAS will force the person
; listening for the longest time off to make room for the new
; connection.
; RipFile=sc_serv.rip

; RIPOnly, when set to Yes, will only allow IP addresses listed in the Reserved
; IP list to connect and relay. All other connections for listening will be denied.
; This is really only useful for servers whose sole purpose is to provide the
; primary feed to all public relays. Setting this value to Yes also forces the
; server into Private mode, since listing this server in the directory would
; be pointless. Default is No.
; RIPOnly=No

; *****************************
; Extended Logging
; *****************************

; The old features previously at this location, HistoryLog and CurrentLog, are
; no longer used and succeded by W3C Logging and XML, respectively.

; ***************************
; Mass Configuration
; ***************************

; Unique: assigns a variable name for use in any config item which points to a
; file. Useful for servers running lots of SHOUTcast servers that have similar
; configuration parameters, excepting logfile names, banfile names, etc. Any
; parameter that takes a pathname can include the character $, which will
; substitute $ for the variable assigned here. Keep in mind that the unique
; variable can only be used after it is defined, so don't try to use a unique
; variable substitution in a path before you define it. For example, you
; could set:
; Unique=my_server
; and then define Log=/usr/local/shoutcast/$.log in an included configuration
; file. Default is Unique=$, so that by default any file with $ in the name
; won't substitute anything at all.

; Include: instructs the sc_serv to read from the named configuration file,
; *at the point of insertion of the Include statement*, and process as though
; the included file was part of itself. Note that all configuration parameters
; in the DNAS config file are processed first to last, so if an item is defined
; twice in a configuration, the last item to process will be the one that takes
; effect. For this reason, it's usually a good idea to use the Includes first
; in a config file.
; example:
; Include=/usr/local/shoutcast/common.conf
; Default is not applicable.

; *****************************
; Tweaks
; *****************************
;
; DON'T MESS WITH THIS STUFF UNLESS YOU REALLY KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING.
; DON'T COMPLAIN TO US IF YOU MESS WITH IT AND THINGS BREAK.
; HAVE A NICE DAY.

; CpuCount is used to explicitly limit the DNAS to dominating a finite
; amount of processors in multiprocessor systems. By default,
; SHOUTcast creates one thread for every processor it detects in the
; host system, and assigns listeners equally across all the threads.
; In the event SHOUTcast doesn't correctly determine the number of
; CPUs in your host, or if you for whatever reason want to force
; the DNAS to not use other processors, you can say so here.
; Default behavior is to use as many processors as the DNAS detects on
; your system.
; CpuCount=1

; Sleep defines the granularity of the client threads for sending data.
; DNAS 1.7.0, per client thread, will send up to 1,024 bytes of data
; per socket (or less depending on the window available), and then
; sleep for the provided duration before repeating the whole process.
; Note that making this value smaller will vastly increase CPU usage on
; your machine. Increasing reduces CPU, but increasing this value too far
; will cause skips. The value which seems most optimal for 128kbps
; streaming is 833 (833 microseconds per client poll) on our test labs.
; We wouldn't recommend setting it any lower than 100, or any higher than
; 1,024. If you have a slower machine, set this number lower to fix
; skips.
; Default value is 833.
; Sleep=833

; CleanXML strips some whitespace and linefeeds from XML output which
; confuses some (poorly written) XML parsers. If you get XML rendering errors,
; try turning this on. Default is No (off).

Ok, never mind, I forgot I was dealing with windows... so... I just shut down, restarted, and reinstalled all the shoutcast/dsp/winamp stuff and I'm now getting a "Now Playing" section. I wish developers were perfect inhuman gods so we all wouldn't have to go through this stuff all the time.

This worked for me :)

Just an addition to the 'Set SrcIP to ANY', you also have to have 'DestIP to be ANY'! Most of the users who experienced success fixing this problem by re-installing shoutcast probably had DestIP reset to ANY when they re-installed! I accidentally/on purpose added the IP of my computer that is behind my NAT into DestIP! I hope this clears up some people's problems

A Little Help Please?

This thread *seemed* to be the answer to my issue but I need more clarification. Basically, the title of songs aren't showing up in the v.2.81 player.

I have uninstalled/reinstalled twice including having deleted all references in both the registry and the desktop/start menus. Each time it reinstalls the same issue occurs - no song titles! Just the name of the dumb shoutcast station.

Here are some IPs I've been streaming:
http://64.236.34.97:80/stream/1018
http://64.236.34.97:80/stream/1040

Also I've checked the win.ini file and cannot find any references to "SrcIP," "password," or anything else you people are talking about. If you explained things a little bit more comprehensively then it would be a lot more helpful than just "do this" kind of language.

What happened to GO HERE to look - that is a crucial piece of information everyone overlooked in this thread. For example, where EXACTLY would you find SrcIP if not in the .ini file? It's not in preferences or anywhere else that I can see.

Help?!

Are you a listener or a broadcaster?

Listeners don't have SrcIP or a password.

Broadcasters should know exactly where these items are.

Are you positive the stations above are streaming titles?
Some stations don't.

Try my station and see if titles show up.

Yeah I'm a moron - I'm a listener not a broadcaster. FYI the codec I installed from http://www.kqlz.org/tunein.html royally screws up WinAmp 2.81. *never* install it!

I found out a good tip for this topic...whenever you make any sort of changes to yer router settings, YOU MUST POWER CYCLE YER ROUTER!!!

I was having issues getting the song title to show up also...I tried everything; restarting winamp, restarting the server, even my computer...for some reason, the only thing that worked was cutting the power from the router for a hot minute.

If you make any forwarding changes at all...POWER CYCLE THE ROUTER!...it will work...almost 100% guaranteed!

I'm behind a hardware firewall that has NAT translation enabled. For example, I have ports 8012 and 8013 going to forward to 10.0.0.3. I have appropriately set the DestIP to 10.0.0.3.

This configuration gives me a running SHOUTcast server and I'm able to stream (at least locally, I haven't tried streaming from a remote source yet). I can connect to the stream and listen remotely, which is good.

The problem, though, is that for some reason it won't update the Song Titles. If you'd like to take a look,

It will update the other information, though, like my AIM screen name and the "name". Just not the song titles. (Yes, they're enabled, yes both check boxes are checked, yes I have unchecked and rechecked them.)

Any help would be much appreciated.

Aloha TonyDennis!

What is the Winamp/DSP combo input method?

1. Go to Winamp and enable the SHOUTcast DSP.
2. Click the "Input" tab
3. Look at the "Input Configuration", "Input Device" section
4. Is it set at "Winamp (Recommended)" or "Soundcard"

It is set to Winamp (Recommended). I don't think it would be wise to change it to soundcard as this server does not have one.

Thanks for your help.

Try set DestIP back to ANY.

DestIP is used for machines with multiple WAN ips.

This server does have multiple WAN IPs, that's why I set it to a specific one.

10.0.0.3 is not a wan ip.

Try one of the wan ips.

Oops!

Hmm, I guess technically the firewall has multiple WAN IPs and the server itself has only multiple LAN IPs. However, when I set the DestIP to anything that's not actually bound to the server it fails to start.

Surely there are other servers behind a NAT firewall?

edit: Here's the error I get after changing the DestIP to the external IP:

code:
<05/03/04@02:06:39> [main] opening client socket
<05/03/04@02:06:39> [source] listening for connection on port 8013
<05/03/04@02:06:39> [main] error opening client socket! FATAL ERROR! Some other
process is using this port!

What happens when DestIP is ANY?
