Do you mean that one could add mp3 in the playlist during the playing ? This
would be very fun since I have to restart ezsream each time I add a mix in my
radio (http://cellar.alchimix.org). But I really want to keep this light
program, the only one that just send real mp3 or ogg (maybe flac and theora ?  ;)
) without reencoding...

I made a tool which uses restartd to restart a given stream when it's shut down.
Would you be interested ?

I've also made a package for Debian here : http://yomix.org/debian/
and I'm ready to upload it in the distrib, but I'd like the pb of infinite loop
when the playlist is empty to be solved before...
