Liquidsoap scripting language reference

The Source / … categories contain all functions that return sources. The Input functions are those which build elementary sources (playing files, synthesizing sound, etc.). The Output functions are those which take a source and register it for being streamed to the outside (file, soundcard, audio server, etc.). The Visualization functions are experimental ones that let you visualize in real-time some aspects of the audio stream. The Sound Processing functions are those which basically work on the source as a continuous audio stream. They would typically be mixers of streams, audio effects or analysis. Finally, Track Processing functions are basically all others, often having a behaviour that depends on or affects the extra information that liquidsoap puts in streams: track limits and metadata.

  • is_ready (of type () -> bool): Indicate if a source is ready to stream. This does not mean that the source is currently streaming, just that its resources are all properly initialized.
  • is_up (of type () -> bool): Indicate that the source can be asked to produce some data at any time. This is true when the source is currently being used or if it could be used at any time, typically inside a switch or fallback.
  • last_metadata (of type () -> [string * string]?): Return the last metadata from the source.
  • log (of type {level : (() -> int?).{set : (int) -> unit}}): Get or set the source’s log level, from 1 to 5.
  • on_metadata (of type ((([string * string]) -> unit)) -> unit): Call a given handler on metadata packets.
  • on_shutdown (of type ((() -> unit)) -> unit): Register a function to be called when source shuts down.
  • on_track (of type ((([string * string]) -> unit)) -> unit): Call a given handler on new tracks.
  • on_wake_up (of type ((() -> unit)) -> unit): Register a function to be called after the source is asked to get ready. This is when, for instance, the source’s final ID is set.
  • remaining (of type () -> float): Estimation of remaining time in the current track.
  • seek (of type (float) -> float): Seek forward, in seconds (returns the amount of time effectively seeked).
  • self_sync (of type () -> bool): Is the source currently controlling its own real-time loop.
  • skip (of type () -> unit): Skip to the next track.
  • time (of type () -> float): Get a source’s time, based on its assigned clock.

video.rectangle

Deprecated: use video.add_rectangle.

Type:

(?id : string?, ?alpha : {float}, ?color : {int}, height : {int},
 width : {int}, ?x : {int}, ?y : {int}, source(video=canvas('a), 'b)) ->
source(video=canvas('a), 'b)

Arguments:

  • id (of type string?, which defaults to null)
  • alpha (of type {float}, which defaults to 1.)
  • color (of type {int}, which defaults to 0)
  • height (of type {int})
  • width (of type {int})
  • x (of type {int}, which defaults to 0)

  • fallible (of type bool): Indicate if a source may fail, i.e. may not be ready to stream.
  • id (of type () -> string): Identifier of the source.
  • is_active (of type () -> bool): true if the source is active, i.e. it is continuously animated by its own clock whenever it is ready. Typically, true for outputs and sources such as input.http.
  • is_ready (of type () -> bool): Indicate if a source is ready to stream. This does not mean that the source is currently streaming, just that its resources are all properly initialized.
