ENCO PADapult can be configured to send song title and artist data (metadata) to the TundraCast player. Once the player receives the metadata, our servers provide the player with the matching album artwork. To set up these features, follow the below steps. These instructions assume you have already set up playback state or send text and metadata is being received by PADapult.
Step 1: Add a new destination called 'TundraCast'
Add a new destination by clicking the purple destination buttons. A blank button will typically indicate the destination is unassigned. Name the new Destination 'TundraCast'.
Step 2: Set the URL and HTTP options
Check the 'HTTP message' checkbox along with the 'Use GET Method' and 'Filter Default Output' checkboxes.
Set the URL to: 'http://<user>:<password>@<tundracastId>.tundracast.com:<port>/admin/metadata?mount=/<mountPoint>&mode=updinfo&song='
For example, if my TundraCast station was WXXX, my URL would look like: 'http://admin:firstname.lastname@example.org:8080/admin/metadata?mount=/stream&mode=updinfo&song='
The below example helps illustrate the proper settings:
Step 3: Set the Default Output
The Default Output should be set to: '[ARTIST] - [TITLE]'
See below for an example of the proper Default Format:
Below is a picture of the expected result on the TundraCast player when all is configured properly:
Note: Group Formats should only be used by advanced users. The improper use of Group Formats could lead to missing metadata and album artwork.
