Track data - how?

Using Nicecast and iTunes on a Mac I can't seem to get the track data to go up with the stream. I'm casting from a remote server. Which means that listeners keep asking what track's playing, which gets a bit boring after a while. Can anyone point me to/give me a step-by-step guide for idiots? Thanks in advance.

You mentioned you use Skype and that you broadcast music. I am assuming you play the music on itunes or other player, right? The stream will NOT capture individual song track titles and broadcast them. At least not with NiceCast. Like Lorna mentioned you can broadcast your show info. I am not sure there is an automatic plugin that will take this info from your music player. The only other alternative I would see is to broadcast audio like radio365. I am not sure what system configuration they use but the do shoutcast like us. Jose Rodriguez, Co-Facilitator Webcast Academy Session 2.3; It's Elementary Webcast

Info setting

Hi If I understand your question correctly, you want to display the name of your stream, In Nicecast on the Mac in the "Broadcast" settings - select "Info" for the description , url, genre etc. Hope that is what you are looking for. Lorna Costantini
