Now playing within my radio app

Basically Anke, I own an online radio station
And I've created an app for my station via mit
Now I want to be able to show listeners what is Currently playing, what song there listening to?

When I set my web browser to http://coolvibes.vside-radio.com/
I get the response "nothing here".

Since you own the radio station, have the web site show the currently playing song instead of that, and have your app scrape that using the Web component.

When I tested the app it worked fine even a couple of my friends said it worked

Well that took an awful long way to get to the bottom of the problem.

What I would try, is making a simple website which only include the Information you want to display.
Then you can just read that website in the app and display it accordingly.

I have that stream in the app, nuh I've tried your way with the app but got declined by google

unfortunately we do not know what you have tried...

It would really help if you provided a screenshot of your relevant blocks, so we can see what you are trying to do, and where the problem may be.

To get an image of your blocks, right click in the Blocks Editor and select "Download Blocks as Image". You might want to use an image editor to crop etc. if required. Then post it here in the community.

This is my blocks and what I'm trying to add is a now playing so that people can see what songs are playing? It's hard for me to explain as I've got autism and I'm autistic

follow the advice from @ABG or @vinnikirsche

As I've said I've submitted our app of our website to google play and they have declined it

Did they give you any reason why?

I really can't imagine, that including your website is the problem.

Just try to explain, it might take some time, but I'm sure we can figure that out and find a solution.

I like your radio station btw., good tunes. :+1:

Many thanks, and they said there was bad content on there i.e donation button

Alright, I see, still a bit weird from them. But who knows :man_shrugging:

I'm a bit busy right now, but I would be willing to take a closer look at the problem on Sunday.
So that I can provide you with some sample blocks and what to put on your website.

If you're interested just hit me up in the pm, so we don't have to annoy everybody here.

And if somebody is able to find a solution that works for you early here, that of course also would be great.

Make a screenshot of the message you got from Google and post it.

Hi there,

I have a similar problem.

I have a German internet radio. The radio has 2 channels (Player 1, Player2).

When I start player 1, player 2 should not be able to be activated. And vice versa. Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way. I can start Player 1, but also Player 2. This means I can hear both streams at the same time. How can I deactivate a player when another player is currently active?


Another problem is the song display. So, when I start a payer (Player 1 OR Player 2), it should also be shown which music title is being listened to. The song title with artist should be displayed in a different box.

The display should come from a website (Payer 1: http://hitxl.de/hitxl1_titelanzeiger.html OR Player 2: http://hitxl.de/hitxl2_titelanzeiger.html). Only text should be displayed.

Unfortunately the HTML code is shown and not the song title and artist.

Of course, the display should start when you only start a player. If the player is stopped, the song title and artist should no longer be displayed.

I've included some screenshots here so you can understand what I'm talking about. Definitely complicated?

you can't have 2 Screen1.Initialize events... you should join them...
also what about using only one Player component... just set the source of the Player before playing...
and for streaming a streaming player might be the better choice?
there are streaming player extensions available, see also https://puravidaapps.com/extensions.php

Thank you for your quick response!
Both channels should be shown on one screen, because the app is easier to use. I also created the buttons myself and wanted to incorporate as few other designs as possible.
Isn't it possible to use my design anyway? Without foreign players?

as already said, you can't have 2 Screen1.Initialize events... you should join them...
can you see the red error? you might want to click onto the red X and read the error message...
Unbenannt
however you do not like to play both streams at the same time, do you?

now you might want to try my other suggestion...

sure, if it works fine for you...

Hi there,
Unfortunately, I didn't manage to do it.
Do you have the opportunity to show me the correct way?
thanks
