Subject: Re: Streaming title

In fairness, it is obvisouly only a guess. Without seeing the stream I
cannot be 100% sure - but given that v2 of the ID3 spec has a whole swathe
of features expecially for this type of streaming it just seems very likely.

As I say, it's not that hard to spot these tags, the issue is that it is a
fair chunk of code (not so much for the coder, but more for memory space)
and the code needs to be placed quite deep in the techie end of Rockbox -
and for obvious reasons, you don't go playing in that code unless you need to.

As with all these types of projects there are two ways forward. Code it
yourself or try to enthuse others. If enough people post here wanting this
feature SOMEONE will pick up the challenge. Perhaps if you sold us the
joys of capturing these streams and how easy it is with the right software,
then loads of us will end up with these things on our hard drives? ...Just
some thoughts.
