Local Monitoring Tool


This tool is used for ACRCloud Local Broadcast Monitoring Service

Local Broadcast Monitoring System(GitHub) is used to monitor live radio streams on your own local server.


How To Use

  1. You should register an account on the ACRCloud platform, and create a Broadcast Monitoring project with local monitoring type, you will get access_key, then add your live radio streams in your project.

  2. Clone the code in your local server.

  3. Install MySQL, import acrcloud_database.sql to your mysql server. $mysql -uroot -p < acrcloud_database.sql.

  4. Modify configuration file (acrcloud_config.py), fill access_key, access_secret and database info in the config file.

  5. Run python acrcloud_local_server.py to start monitor server.

  6. You can use client to refresh, get stream state, pause and restart stream, run python acrcloud_client.py.

  7. You can use Ctrl + \ to stop monitor server (in Linux).

  8. You can get monitoring results in your MySql database.

  9. If you want to record recognize audio, you can set config["record"]["record"]=3 (default is 0 and it means not record).

    You can set config["record"]["record_dir"] to specify the save path.

    These config can be set in "acrcloud_config.py"

    • python -m pip install mysql-python

  6. Copy the ACRCloud Library into the acrcloud_local_monitor direction according to your system.

    • X86: copy from winlibs/win32/acrcloud_stream_decode.pyd to acrcloud_local_monitor direction

    • X64: copy from winlibs/win64/acrcloud_stream_decode.pyd to acrcloud_local_monitor direction

  7. If you have created Local Project and add some streams, config the acrcloud_config.py with your access_key, and mysql information, then start the local server

    python acrcloud_local_server.py

  8. Stop the local monitor server

    python acrcloud_stop.py and Ctrl-C

Run as a Docker Container
