Zararadio can send mp3 tags to a shoutcast type server.
What i was able to do was grab a copy of Oddsock Edcast V3 which i use to encode mp3s for streaming to a personal Steamcast server here at the home and to the Wunderground.com streaming NOAA Wx Radio.
I had a Live365 account i also used Zararadio to stream to that server as well. Most paid shoutcast host’s require that you provide the song title and artist names as part of your agreement to stream on their server.
Zararadio will not send mp3 id’s to the servers on its own, however it does have a plain text called CurrentSong.txt which contains the name of the song Zara is currently playing, in Edcast you have three or more options for sending mp3 id tags to a server, i chose the File option and pointed it to the CurrentSong.txt file in C:Program FilesZaraSoftZararadioCurrentSong.txt that way Edcast will send the mp3 id tags (metadata) to the servers and satisfy the stream host.
I am not sure if you can still find Oddsock V3 Edcast anywhere else since the creator stopped developing new software. If i can find it on my station computer then I will gladly add a link here for folks to download.
This is how i have been using Zararadio to stream my station online.
There are much easier ways of doing things but i like a challenge and the idea of having full control of my own servers here at home.
Seasons Greetings and as always Keep On Rockin”
Update: Found the Standalone Edcast which is what i use here.
cast-servers.html (configuration of edcast for use on shoutcast servers)
P.S. I almost forgot to mention that there is a Edcast plugin for Winamp so if it works well in Winamp it should work for Zararadio v1.4.4 as well. http://www.winamp.com
