Pull text from flash?

7 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I was making a web radio player that reads the tracks played, puts it into some variable and then saves it to the text file.

I already accomplished everything except pull text from the Flash Object.

Basically I want to take the artist name and track name and save it.

I've tried _FileReadToArray but it didn't work ;)

Here is the script

#cs ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 AutoIt Version: 3.3.6.1
 Author:          Foxhound

 Script Function:
         Shoutcast player
#ce ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
dim $data
$url = "http://www.shoutcast.com/shoutcast-cdn/flash/popupPlayer_V19.swf?stationid=http://yp.shoutcast.com/sbin/tunein-station.pls?id=1280356&play_status=1"
#NoTrayIcon
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
#include <IE.au3>
#include <File.au3>
SplashTextOn ("Shoutcast .977 player","By FOXHOUND",300,150,-1,-1,1,"Arial",30,300)
AutoItSetOption("GUICloseOnESC",1)
$ieObj = _IECreateEmbedded()
$Form1 = GUICreate("Shoutcast player v2.0",415, 130,-1,-1)
$AX  = GUICtrlCreateObj($ieObj,0,0,415,130)
;$button = GUICtrlCreateButton("Play",75,20,100,30)
_IENavigate($ieObj,$url)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
SplashOff()
While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Exit

    EndSwitch
WEnd

I'll take a look now. Hold on.

EDIT:

Hmm, I think I found the variables used to store the data. But I can't find out how to get this variable into autoit though.

I will search some.

EDIT:

Wow, I found a-lot things. Station files, playlist files. I just can't find the title and artist.

This is how the playlist looks like:

You could also use the flash instead of an ie object.

Global $oRP = ObjCreate("ShockwaveFlash.ShockwaveFlash.1")
GUICreate ("Flash", 820, 700, -1, -1)
$GUIActiveX    = GUICtrlCreateObj( $oRP, 10, 10 , 800 , 580)
With $oRP
    .bgcolor = "#ffffff"
    .Movie = 'http://www.shoutcast.com/shoutcast-cdn/flash/popupPlayer_V19.swf?stationid=http://yp.shoutcast.com/sbin/tunein-station.pls?id=1280356&play_status=1'
    .ScaleMode = 2
    .Loop = False
    .wmode = "Opaque"
    .FlashVars = ""
EndWith

GUISetState ()

while 1
sleep(100)
wend

You could try something like: $lastsong=$oRP.GetVariable("LastSong"), but its more hacking at this point. You need to decompile the swf and look for the variable that displays the name and author of the song.

Maybe copy paste is the best.

I sorta already had the variable.

.getVariable is a really weird function. I never accomplished to made it work. :/

Ok sorry for being so late to respond.

I found another way to pull text from shoutcast's website.

The problem is (as I explained here: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=118979) shoutcasts' website updates their now playing

list too slowly. The flash text, however, updates almost immediately. So I still need to find a way.

I've included the two functions I'm using now

Func getTitle()
    ;Fetch the title of the song playing embedded deep inside the html source code of Shoutcasts home page.
    ;The alternative was pulling this information from their Flash Object, but seeing as I can't figure out how to
    ;pull text from flash, this will have to do. This method also explains why the song info updates a lot slower.
    $source = _INetGetSource("http://www.shoutcast.com/")
    $tar = _StringBetween2($source,"<div>Site: <a href=""http://www.977music.com","<div class=""dirspacer""></div>")
    $tar2 = _StringBetween2($tar,"Played:","</div>")
    Return($tar2)

Func _StringBetween2($s, $from, $to)
    ;This helpful function taken from: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=89554
    $x = StringInStr($s, $from) + StringLen($from)
    $y = StringInStr(StringTrimLeft($s, $x), $to)
    Return StringMid($s, $x, $y)
EndFunc
