Streaming: How Do I Pull Metadata for Now Playing?


I am a novice at this. I have built a simple Play/Pause app for my audio stream and that part works great. What I am now trying to figure out is how to add the Artist - Title when songs are playing. I have searched online, asked in the Facebook group, and also a quick search of "Metadata" here has not revealed any results in what I am trying to accomplish. Any insight you can give would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

there are 2 mp3 extensions which might help

taken from the extensions directory

and Kodular offers an ExoPlayer component, which also offers Metadata access

Thank you. I will take a look at that and report back.

Okay I am stumped. I think the one that might help me the most is the link to the Kodular Community post.
