Hi all again

Why with all this techno stuff when scoop capture & edit get the audio feeds can it not give you the details of whats in it or is that just not possible as you have to listen to the audio and then find the text to fit it

Which takes a bit of time when it says IRN digital feed

we are trying out v2 and will be purchasing it because it is very good

But would help if you didn't have to listen to all the audio to find what u are looking for :?

Hi John,

The problem with this is that IRN don't send any data info about what they are actually feeding. Also, becuase they often send more than one thing at a time - i.e. 2 feeds or more at the same time.

Without some kind of signal from them in between, we can't tell which is which. Combined with no data telling us what they are sending anyway it does kind of leave us high and dry.

At present, they aren't aiming to change this method, but I know they are always trying to come up with better ways of working.

They do have a website that most of the stories and audio is available from - though you will need to contact them direct to get access to it. Unfortunately this isn't a perfect alternative, as it doesn't work in realtime, so you can't get the current bulletin \"live\", so you still need to keep a dish for the top of the hour bulletin.

We are actually working with them to try and develop Scoop v3 to the point of being able to access this website as an alternate delivery method to the standard satellite feeds, and we get on with this we'll let you all know.

That would be really useful. Actually if they could produce an XML file with the start, stop, title and article id then you could probably script something to run every few minutes and automatically cut out the audio (you would then need to install something that kept the clock up to date very often or it would all fall apart!) and insert it into the articles.

With best wishes,

Alex

Well, some people at IRN are members of this forum, so you never know what will happen Smile

If they have access to that sort of file I can't see the problem in releasing it, even if they put it in an password protected directory. If anyone from IRN knows what format the list is currently kept and could pm me or post it here I can probably think of some way of turing it into an XML stream.
