You may want to use a different display method than a notifier, and perhpas use a clock timer to regularly check that the player is playing

is there some metadata available in your stream?
in the extensions directory there are only MP3 metadata extensions available...

probably this can help...

did you already try a Google search?

Is it really too much to ask that you explain exactly what it is actually all about?

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
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.

You need to type in the complete link.

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.

Please read this before continuing

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
