Oddsock, Mike,

Thank you. I was the fool (maybe not enough sleep:-). Because the shoutcast
servers at never sent any useful data in the "real" http
header I just threw it away and always looked at the following data (where
shoutcast sends plain text stream info). Icecast sends the info in the http
header itself.Ahh... Now I got it.
