    How to connect up to the electro-music stream using Nicecast.

    Nicecast is a Mac only tool.



    Set up a song title

    There is a file /Library/Application Support/Nicecast/NowPlaying.txt, when you enter as a first line :

    Title: Song Title Here

    the song title will be set to 'Song Title Here', any following lines will be ignored.

    Auto reconnect settings

    From the nicecast manual

    In the name of simplicity, not all of Nicecast's preferences are accessible from within the application. Some prefs can only be accessed through the "defaults" system in the Terminal or by editing the preferences file (~/Library/Preferences/com.rogueamoeba.Nicecast.plist) by hand.

    Quote:

    retryTimeIntervals: This preference controls the connection retry attempts, for Nicecast connecting to the server specified in the Servers window.

    The example command below for the Terminal will cause Nicecast to attempt to reconnect once a second. This is not recommended unless you know it's needed, as it can overwhelm a server.

     defaults write com.rogueamoeba.Nicecast "retryTimeIntervals" '(1)'
    

    The example command below for the Terminal will cause Nicecast to attempt to reconnect after 10 seconds. If that fails, it will try again 20 seconds later, and if that fails it will try in 30 seconds. After the third attempt it will continue trying to connect every 30 seconds thereafter.

     defaults write com.rogueamoeba.Nicecast "retryTimeIntervals" '(10, 20, 30)'
    

    To reset to the default (which is 1,1,10,10,20,20,60), enter:

     defaults delete com.rogueamoeba.Nicecast retryTimeIntervals
