How get ICY (Shoutcast) metadata from HTML5 audio element? Jose Nobile 7/28/13 5:29 PM
Shoutcast is a server for audio/video streamings, I can play the sound in browser with audio tag using a URL as: http://190.144.31.82:8000/;

Any event in javascript in audio element or Audio Api to read the meta data (song name)?

Explaination, to request to Shoutcast sent metadata is add a HTTP header
Icy-MetaData: 1

Answer from Shoutcast come with a header
icy-metaint: 8192

It is detailed here: http://www.smackfu.com/stuff/programming/shoutcast.html

Google Chrome can to implement a way to trigger a event with metadata information from Shoutcast streams?
