The MIME type of ogg streams has changed recently. "Application/ogg" is
correct. Icecast accepts and serves only "application/ogg" now, but winamp
seems to be receiving both (I haven't had any problems with winamp 2.81 yet).
If you use winamp as the source client with some (possibly oddsock's)
plug-in, you have to change it by hand or send a request to the
author of the plug-in.
I've already sent an e-mail to oddsock about that, but I haven't
received any reply yet. I had to change the MIME type in the
streamTranscoder's source by hand (that was pretty easy).
