Q: Why does the StreamSync not pick up certain song details?
The StreamSync will read now playing information from your Shoutcast or Icecast music streams in their standard format (Title - Artist, or Artist -Title). It will be unable use this now playing information to discover song information (tempo etc) if (unusually) your stream provides the now playing information in a non-standard format. For example, inclusion of album title or today's date will prevent the song from being looked up. It will also be unable to look up song information in the case of spelling mistakes or non-standard characters in the now playing information. Streamsync uses Spotify to provide song information as is restricted to the song database Spotify maintains. Whilst unlikely, some niche song information may not be available.
