Description

icydemux accepts data streams with ICY metadata at known intervals, as transmitted from an upstream element (usually read as response headers from an HTTP stream). The mime type of the data between the tag blocks is detected using typefind functions, and the appropriate output mime type set on outgoing buffers.

Example launch line

1
gst-launch-1.0 souphttpsrc location=http://some.server/ iradio-mode=true ! icydemux ! fakesink -t
This pipeline should read any available ICY tag information and output it. The contents of the stream should be detected, and the appropriate mime type set on buffers produced from icydemux. (Using gnomevfssrc, neonhttpsrc or giosrc instead of souphttpsrc should also work.)
