Displaying Track Info on Twitter/Facebook


Recommended Posts

Does any one know of a really really easy way to have the track information from your ShoutCast station appear on Twitter and/or Facebook?

 

I say "really really easy" because I have no script programming experience whatsoever.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks!

- make a "Command to run" on your server or pc and insert the complete URL of the location

for example http://www.name.domain/twitter/twittercast.php where you have uploaded both files + title.txt

 

Are you talking about a batch file using notepad and giving it a .cmd extension or .bat extension? And you can you provide an example of what this command to run is supposed to look like?

 

Sorry for so many questions!

Thanks!

Gary,

 

If you download my rar file who contains all files who has to be used, you gonna notice that you only need the IP and Port

+ your twitter name and password

So everything who is shown on a MP3 display, is shown at your twitter account

Hope this was helpfull to you

#Access Token (Your very own access token. Keep it safe.)

$token = 'Same again';

#Access Token Secret

$secret= 'and same again';

 

$twitterObj = new EpiTwitter($consumer_key, $consumer_secret, $token, $secret);

$twitterObjUnAuth = new EpiTwitter($consumer_key, $consumer_secret);

if ($_GET['message'] == '') {

The twittercast script works for me..you can look at my twitter account

Very easy to set up...

 

so when I post to twitter it updates my facebook page which is great...

 

Theres also this script that Posts to tumblr!
