Howto force title display from playlist info?

Added by Hans L. over 6 years ago

How could I force Audacious to display some fixed information (like Artist or Title from #EXTINF) of an imported playlist, not replacing it from metadata?

The motivation is: I keep a playlist containing my favorite webradios, i.e., with stream urls.
Now these stations transmit wildly varying metadata. Mostly Artist - Title in the current Title tag of the stream, which is fine, but anything more or less resembling the station name or advertising or nothing at all in the Artist tag. So Audacious' displayed playlist changes constantly, even with mouse-overs, and it becomes difficult to recognize the station from its list entry.

I would therefore like a possibility to set a fixed title like »Radio Paradise« or »Sleepbot« in my playlist entries.

Thanks, Hans
