I haven't looked at the code so forgive me if this is already what it's doing..
Considering the problems with the current metadata implementation..
couldn't it be changed to just cache the data that comes from the source in
order to update it if it changes, and then just send it down to the
listening clients then in the form of an ID3V2 tag when they first connect,
and then only when it changes?
I'm not entirely sure if they would show the data, but I think they would..
and if they don't, it won't hurt anything, since they don't contain a valid
I don't use X on any of my freebsd boxes and thus don't have a half-decent
gui to try this on myself.. but I may try and compile it under windows with
BC5 which I do have on my windows box. If it works without too much
hassle, I'll try and come up with a patch if none of the project coders are
willing to do it.
