ZaraRadio creates a file named “CurrentSong.txt”. The later versions of Zara let you specify where that file is placed. Older versions simply drop it in the Zara program folder.
Each time a new file is played, Zara writes a new “CurrentSong” file with the info of the currently playing file and BUTT passes this along.
When you setup BUTT, you can specify whether to update the stream info automatically or manually. If you choose automatic you simply specify where the “CurrentSong” file is found. If you specify manual, you type it in with each new file.
I suppose if you are running live off the board with vinyl, cd’s or other sources you could simply type it in with each item played.
There is also a stand-alone utility called ZaraWebRDS which works with ZaraRadio. This little gem will keep track of info for the currently playing file plus the last 9. The utility creates an HTML file which it uploads to your web server and can be embeded in a webpage where it can be viewed.
