Handle RDS Radiotext metadata embedded in MPEG streams
Specified in ETSI TS 101 154 V2.1.1 C.4.2.18 , p 159
Public Radios from Germany and Switzerland now embed RDS information within the MPEG stream using UECP in their satellite streams. It's also present in TDF's FIP feed on 5°W 11480 H.
It would be awesome if VLCplayer could display this as it displays i.e. Shoutcast metadata (in VLC's own metadata window and also pass it on as System notifications). Especially having artist and title name displayed improves user experience.
Here is how Kodi has implemented this: https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/14731
Here is a little python script for testing/inspiration https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=336682
cat sample.mp2 | python3.6 /path/to/uecp_tool.py 320
I will provide sample files and can provide test streams if needed.
