Metadata as a Variable? - Song / Artist / Album

How can I pull the now playing Song / Artist / Album data from Airfoil and populate the appropriate variables in Indigo?

I looked at the Airfoil Wiki and can see that the data is exposed, just unsure for to get it into a variable?

This wouldl solve my control page lack of data no mater what the source is playing ( iTunes / Spotify)

Thanks!

Use the Variable Actions->Insert Device State into Variable action in a trigger that fires whenever one of those values changes.

Thanks Jay!

I was looking in the wrong spot for the trigger. :oops:

I was in Airfoil Event instead of Device State Changed for type of trigger and not seeing the data.

All good now!!

:D :D :D
