i see that icecast retains song titles only when running in full debug
mode (with DEBUG_FULL defined in icecast.h). is this observation correct?
how can i find out when a new song is being streamed by a source?
can i determine this accurately by examining song title
(souce.info.streamtitle)? or, is there a more reliable method?
<p>pls. let me know.
