Liquidsoap 1.1.0 : Flows


We maintain a webpage of streams generated by Liquidsoap. In order to register your radio on this page, a simple operator called register_flow is provided. If your stream is called stream, just wrap it as follows before outputting it:

stream = register_flow(
  radio="My radio",
  description="The sound of my computer",

Most parameters are pretty explicit: radio is the name of the radio, website is the url of the website of the radio, etc.

The parameter streams is a list of pairs of strings describing the format of the stream and the url of the stream. We use a list here because one radio can be broadcasted under multiple stream formats. The format should always be of the form codec/bitrate (e.g. mp3/128k) or codec if it is encoded in variable bitrate.

You can register a stream with any user and password parameters. Those parameters are only useful if you use additional services such as the command-line client, or if you want to claim that you “own” a registered radio. All this is relatively informal for now, but may be tightened in future developments of Flows.
