Support for naming radio stream

Recommended Posts

The display name should be taken from the data provided by the streaming station. Is that not working for you?

The only time that can become a problem is in Category Lists when the station has provided full song/artist details for the last song - in which case the station name usually gets shown as an Album name, which can become confusing if you have a lot of stations.

If the station does not transmit any ID information at all, and you have created the stream from the contents of a Playlist, the data within the M3U file will be used for for title details. Of course if the station does broadcast song titles, those will quickly overwrite any text read from the M3U file.

For example, my current BBC Radio Stations M3U file:

#EXTINF:-1,BBC Radio 1
#EXTINF:-1,BBC Radio 2
#EXTINF:-1,BBC Radio 3
#EXTINF:-1,BBC Radio 4
#EXTINF:-1,BBC Radio 4 Extra
#EXTINF:-1,BBC Radio 5 Live
#EXTINF:-1,BBC Radio 6 Music
#EXTINF:-1,BBC Radio West Midlands
#EXTINF:-1,BBC World Service
