Streaming and now playing

Streaming and now playing
« on: August 07, 2020, 04:53:55 AM »
Hi all! I bring you a question, I want to show the song that is currently playing on my website. but my shoutcast is 30 seconds or more delayed and updates on my website are in real time. This gives me a headache because I want it to show the song when it starts playing and not show 30-40 seconds earlier. Is there a solution for this or a code (PHP, HTML)?

Depending on you're bitrate, listeners who are tuned in for hours at a time can find what you're displaying as playing can be 4 - 5 - 6 songs infrom of what they're listening too..
With mine I set the refresh rate at around 40 seconds and use a shoutcastXML to display whats playing not the software, this seems to keep things pretty much inline.
