|hey Karl and everyone!
tonight I have been battling a strange issue with getting myself on more YP directories.. though the titles seem straightforward and all that, I wasn't seeing the station listing on no other YP directory EXCEPT icecast.org and steamcast.com... in closer inspection, I noticed that the stream TITLES themselves will change with the login of DJs accordingly.. Now, I know, DUh.. right? well...
heres an EXAMPLE of what I mean...
when I start up the system, the title set is:
[DJ Zath - Master Control] A-Ha - Take on me (WARP radio 320k Broadband Feed)
then, when a DJ logs in:
[DJ Roughley - Tops of the Rocks Show] Metallica - Nothing Else Matters (WARP Radio 320k Broadband Feed)
I have discovered that the YP directories aren't honoring the full title names: and, therefore, may list as "DJ Roughley" and not "WARP Radio".. or not even list at all!
I would like to FIX this by "clamping" parts of the title so that they will always say "warp radio" even if the DJ has it say something ELSE..
Now, I know HOW to minipolate the stream title entries at the mounts, but I can't seem to get them to isolate "between mounts" correctly...
...and, if I were to "fall out" of the system, then the DJ's input mount overrides EVERYTHING.. and only a server RESET can correct this situation..
