Ices config - script for playlist section


I'm using ices 2.2.0 and icecast 2.2.0 on Linux. I'm trying to configure the playlist section in Ices-plylist.conf to run a script, which returns an audio file name (in OGG format), and stream the returned audioi file to icecast server. Has anyone done this before? Would appreciate if you can show me how you configure your config file.

Please help!!

With thanks,

Did you see the bottom of the page at

I've never used it, but I've read the script option only cares about the first line of output from your script's STDOUT

You could write a more dynamic script that generates an entire ices config file (no repeat option). This parent process could create a config file, spawn ices, wait till it's complete, and repeat the cycle. The downside is you wouldn't be able to crossfade between tracks if you needed to.
