Has anyone found a way to interrogate the audio stream (icecast in my case) so that a user can ask ‘Alexa, what song is this?’
You can use a call to an API for example (if Icecast has one) to get the information within your skill. Use a command / intent block to redirect to a flow where you make the API call to get the current song title and return it to the user.
Can you please post an example or how to? I am trying to get now playing for my stream: https://streamingv2.shoutcast.com/HippieSoulCafe
Hi @hippiesoulcafe! If you have only the stream link to deal with you can’t get a “now playing” function. You need to get the info from an API for example, so you can grab a JSON response with the actual song title / infos.
