    Default Traktor Now Playing to Text File - Live

    Hi DJTT,

    I'm working on getting set up to livestream from home. I've got the video and audio bit working in my testing now but I would like to add my now playing info as scrolling text on the screen. I know this is fairly simple to do with OBS (a lot of the guys who stream games have this set up for their spotify or itunes now playing).

    The difficulty I'm having is finding a way to get the currently playing track data out of traktor into a text file. Does anyone know of a simple way of doing this? I've seen links to "Traktor Scrobbler" but the site seems to be dead.

    If I fail to find a simple option do you know if traktor updates it's history file live? If so I may be able to get a script that pulls out artist and title and dumps it to a text file every time the history file changes?

    Thanks
