Activate the Live+ extension

Live + is a paid extension that you can activate in your GoodBarber project for an extra fee.

The extension must be purchased for each new Live + section you want to add to your app, meaning that each purchase of the Live + extension will add an extra Live + section to your app (= to add 2 Live + sections to your app, you need to purchase the extension twice, to add 3 Live + sections to your app, you need to purchase the extension 3 times, etc.).

You can try the Live + extension for free before you purchase it.
The free trial period of this add on is 15 days. 

To start your trial: 
1. Go to the left swipe menu Extensions Store > All Extensions > Live +
2. Click "Test the option for free"

Please note that if you decide to end the trial and purchase the add-on before the 15 days are over, the trial won't be renewed.



Set your Live + streaming feed

The Live + section is a direct audio stream which displays additional information during audio playback.

Mandatory requirements:

A - The audio stream must be served over https 
B - You must set an access to your server in order to retrieve the metadata:

  • Set a header Access-Control-Allow-Origin to *
  • Set a header Access-Control-Allow-Headers to Icy-MetaData
  • Set a header Access-Control-Expose-Headers to icy-metaint
Metadata properly set in your feed will allow GoodBarber to ask iTunes for the track’s title, the artist's name, the cover image, and a link to purchase the track. Available information will then be displayed in your app.


Set your Live + section

After purchasing or activating the trial for the Live + add-on:
1. In Design & Structure > Structure > Sections , select your Live + section
2. Add a title for your section
3. Fill in your feed url*
4. Click "Add"

This is optional.
1. Turn on "Schedule "on air" time slot" option

The Live+ page's meta-data is intended to be used for songs.
