All I want to do, in the simliest possible way, is to display on my website that I am currently broadcasting & the song title. Then provide a link that will load streamer.
It can look exactly like information on Streamer station page of my station.
I am totally lost by all the technical stuff in this guide. Isn't there just a simple HTML code I can place on my page?
Dang - I posted a long reply and it didn't save for some reason. Lemme try agin.
1) To let people know that you are broadcasting, use a little tool that Ian set up at http://www.streamerp2p.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1018
2) To display what song you are currently playing using SongRequester, you have to know:
A) that you do indeed have a static IP address when connected to the internet and what that exact static IP address is. Otherwise you need to use a service that will do that for you.
B) how to set the port settings of your router, if you are using one.
Other than that, the web page that Planet Texas has set up at the beginning of this thread does exactly what you want to do.
No, there is no simple code that you can plug in to make it happen. It takes quite a few steps, but nothing that is very very difficult.
The technical stuff can be challenging for some people. The best thing to do is print it out and read it over & over again. I had difficulty with it and put it on the back burner for 7 months and tried it again. Then bingo! - it all made sense. If you read the threads, you'll see that I had lots of problems, but the folks here helped me out. However, for them or I to help you out, you'll have to go through the steps and set up SongRequester on your computer. If (and when) you hit a snag, provide us with the specific
problem/error and someone will be able to help you here. You just can't say "it doesn't work".
3) To have a link that will start Streamer, review the Broadcaster's help page at http://www.streamerp2p.com/?page=bhelp.htm
& scroll 1/2 way down.The "Save URL" button on your Broadcast page within Streamer will do this for you.
Hope this helps.
