[Icecast-dev] Writing Alpha Tags into the comments of an ogg stream

Ideally you'd do it with the program which is encoding our stream.  You just 
start a new ogg stream when you want to change your metadata and use the 
appropriate tags.

If this is not possible, you can also do this via Icecast.  It will insert 
the tags for you, creating the new stream.

Here's what I've managed to turn up quickly as the appropriate syntax.  This 
really ought to be documented somewhere, but if you can't find anything 
either, you may find some source code useful.


Hope this helps,
