Im trying to integrate a custom broadcasting solution with an api. I was told to simply construct a url as defined below, and hit it each song you play. My main shoutcast server is up and running. It is streaming now and i have sam broadcaster running. (not encoding) but analytics relay is active and i have spacialnet registration. However. How can I get a script to access my shoutcast server via ftp and get the play list information and put it on a server directory on my other host account for archiving.? The information i need to retrieve and archive from my shoutcast server is below.
How can i use a php script on my server to do this? My server is linux with apache located at http:larryhoodpublishing.com
My shoutcast server is http://126.96.36.199:PORT#
