Which metadata does Traktor broadcast?

Hi there, I'm using Traktor 3.5 on the latest windows 10 version. I use the broadcasting function to send metadata to an app called Now Playing (developed by Triode). That now playing app (installed on my streaming laptop) basically connects to the Traktor laptop (based on ipadres:9000) and gets the metadata of the artist and title and displays it as an overlay in OBS. My question: which information does the broadcast function broadcast?

Is it only the artist and the title or also the cover art , the mix, the release , label and so on? If so, the next step is probably to go to the now playing app developer and ask whether the app can also display the additional info. Obviously if it isn't broadcasted then I need to turn to NI include that into a next release. Hoping for a positive answer and if you can elaborate at bit on it..... thx!!!

    hey there!

    currently, it only sends artists and titles. There is a possibility that we may extend this in the future, but can't commit to any dates. Hope that helps!

    That would be great. The problem is that besides not having cover art in my stream, I'm also missing essential 'mix' info. Unless I type manually the mix after the title in the title field there's no way to get that info in my stream. Cheers for taking the effort. Should be an easy adjustment for you i guess. I don't know, I'm not a programmer.... thx a million

    @Robert Jansen like you, I'm also using "Now Playing". Personally, I don't think using the Broadcast feature is the most efficient way to solve this problem. In the future, I would prefer to be able to access the meta data directly rather than capture the stream. But then again, being able to broadcast to another laptop (running OBS) is a really useful feature!

    For now, I have included all mix information in the title field. I've also amended the JS to tidy up some of my title data where I use specific notes to myself for the track!

    Some more features for streaming would be cool.

    • Writing master meta data into a text file. (Like Mixxx)
    • Sending master out to another audio device for easy software capture. (like rekordbox or serato)

    Traktor 4 pls 😢
