    Hello! I call myself searching for this answer in this group but to no avail. If I have somehow overlooked it, I am sorry. Here's my issue. I have an on-line radio station that uses Centova Cast v. 3.04. I do not use the "Auto DJ" feature but rather do a live stream to server. I would like to have the album art come up and be displayed on the website along with the song title and artist using the recently played feature. I know there are some broadcasters that use to provide the cover art. I too would like to use, however, I know just enough about coding to really mess things up. I am clueless as to where to begin. Is there a script that I can use? Also, I will probably need some instruction of how to make this work. In the version of centova cast that I have, it has as a source, it is enabled, but I think this only works on the "Auto DJ feature." View the site at and look to the right to see example. Thanks in advance!

    Hi there! I don't know if you guys know about this, but authenticating suddenly stopped working. When I try to open in a web browser (with a newly fetched, seemingly valid token), I get "Ooops, there was a problem. This link has expired, please try again." in the browser window. There were no modifications in my relevant code. Anyone experienced similar behaviour? Thanks!
