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 its 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 Archlinuxs AUR.

Building and Running

Build dependencies: go

$ git clone
$ cd bbc-on-ice
$ go build

To run the local server:

$ ./bbc-on-ice :8000

Streams have URLs in the following form:

Socket activation

The provided bbc-on-ice.service and bbc-on-ice.socket should do, just change the ExecStart path as needed and place the files appropriately. Then:

$ systemctl enable bbc-on-ice.socket
$ systemctl start bbc-on-ice.socket
