SYNOPSIS

    use strict;
    use POE qw(Component::Client::Icecast);
    use Data::Dumper;
    
    POE::Component::Client::Icecast->new(
        Stream    => 'http://station20.ru:8000/station-128',
        Reconnect => 10,

        RemoteAddress => '87.242.82.108',
        RemotePort    => 8000,
        BindPort      => 8103, # for only one permanent client
        
        Reconnect     => 10,
        
        GetTags       => sub {

DESCRIPTION

The module is a non-blocking client to Icecast streaming multimedia server for getting stream tags.

See http://www.icecast.org/.

POE::Component::Client::Icecast is based on POE::Component::Client::TCP.

METHODS

new

    POE::Component::Client::Icecast->new(
        Stream        => 'http://station20.ru:8000/station-128',
        
        # or
        
        Host          => 'station20.ru',
        Path          => '/station-128',
        
        RemoteAddress => '87.242.82.108',
        RemotePort    => 8000,
        BindPort      => 8103, # for only one permanent client
        
        # get tags from server
        
        GetTags => sub {
            warn Dumper $_[ARG0];
        },
    );

PoCo::Client::Icecast's new method takes a few named parameters:

  • Stream

    The stream url to Icecast stream, which contains domain, port and path to stream. Recommended.

    Instead of this param you ought to use: Host, Path, RemoteAddr and RemotePort.

  • Host

    The host of Icecast server (without port).

  • Path

    The path to Icecast stream.

  • RempoteAddress

    The remote address to connect to Icecast server (host or ip). It's a param of POE::Component::Client::TCP.

  • RemotePort

    The remote port to connect. It's a param of POE::Component::Client::TCP.

  • BindAddress

    The param specifies the local interface address to bind to before starting to connect. It's a param of POE::Component::Client::TCP.

  • BindPort

    The param sets the local socket port that the client will be bound to before starting to connect. It's a param of POE::Component::Client::TCP.

  • GetTags

    The event of getting tags from server, it is called for each fully parsed input record from Icecast server.

    $_[ARG0] contains a hashref of tags.

  • Reconnect

    The flag of reconnect to Icecast server. If this flag exists, client will reconnect to server when an established socket has been disconnected. Delay is value of this param (in seconds). Default value is 0 (no reconnect).

DEBUG & TRACE MODES

The module supports debug mode and trace mode (trace POE session).

    BEGIN { $ENV{ICECAST_DEBUG}++; $ENV{ICECAST_TRACE}++ };
    use POE::Component::Client::Icecast;
