[icecast-dev] Ogg response headers

Ok i got a few questions
when a client connects (winamp) what are the incoming headers icecast looks for to signify what type(ogg or mp3) of stream the client is requesting?

(for shoutcast winamp sends  icy-metadata:1)
shoutcast server then recognizes its a player capable of streaming media so it sends the icy-metaint:8192 to winamp, along with a slew of other icy headers.

o here is my dilema
example php code 
fwrite($sp,"GET /my_mp3 HTTP/1.0\nUser-Agent:Secret stuff alpha\nicy-metadata:1\n\n");//works with winamp when requested via php script
fwrite($sp,"GET /example.ogg HTTP/1.0\nUser-Agent:Secret stuff alpha\n\n"); //will not work in winamp when requested via php script

diff highlighted in blue.

any ideas./help would be appreaciated.
