CUE sheets are sometimes distributed along with a single audio file containing a whole CD. Liquidsoap can parse CUE sheets as playlists and use them in your request-based sources.
Here’s for instance an example of a simple code to split a CUE sheet
into several mp3 files with
# Log to stdout log.file.set(false) log.stdout.set(true) log.level.set(4) # Initial playlist cue = "/path/to/sheet.cue" # Create a reloadable playlist with this CUE sheet. # Tell liquidsoap to shutdown when we are done. x = playlist.reloadable(cue, on_done=shutdown) # We will never reload this playlist so we drop the first # returned value: s = snd(x) # Add a cue_cut to cue-in/cue-out according to # markers in "sheet.cue" s = cue_cut(s) # Shove all that to a output.file operator. output.file(%mp3(id3v2=true,bitrate=320), fallible=true, reopen_on_metadata=true, "/path/to/$(track) - $(title).mp3", s)
