bbc-on-ice is a SHOUTcast (ICY protocol) bridge for BBC radio streams. It adds metadata to the stream so that media players can display it. There are some inherent technical limitations to how accurate the information can be but it's definitely better to have an approximate title than nothing.
Regular releases are sporadic. git master should be stable enough. You can get a package with the latest development version from Archlinux's AUR.
Building and Running
Build dependencies: go
$ git clone https://git.janouch.name/p/bbc-on-ice.git $ cd bbc-on-ice $ go build
To run the local server:
$ ./bbc-on-ice :8000
Streams have URLs in the following form:
$ mpv http://localhost:8000/nonuk/sbr_low/bbc_radio_one $ mpv http://localhost:8000/uk/sbr_high/bbc_1xtra
The provided bbc-on-ice.service and bbc-on-ice.socket should do, just change
ExecStart path as needed and place the files appropriately. Then:
$ systemctl enable bbc-on-ice.socket $ systemctl start bbc-on-ice.socket
