I'm wondering what's the secret to get track data working for streaming? I have it working perfectly with Edcast or Butt, but when I swap to ST it never reads the nowplaying.txt file. I read some comments about it not working with a network drive, so I tried a copy on the C:\ Drive, but still no joy. And yes, I did stop and restart stream for every change I have tried, including putting the file path in "" quotes. in case that helped. Maybe it expects something different from txt file??

I have set:

File - the path and file name - I have tried with and without "" quotes
Artist - From (blank) to -
Song - From - to (blank)

The now playing.txt file writes Artist - Songname

Any suggestions welcome!

I also found that even if you write Artist, Title or Song, it does not work work with Shoutcast2.
Also "name" in Metadata is not dispalyed anywhere.

Only 2 things that are working are Genre and URL.

It's annoying. I'd much rather do processing and streaming in ST than output to a separate sw like Butt. But track data is essential.

I'm wondering if it needs a xml file or something unusual (I'm supplying it with plan text Artist - Songname)
