I've tried only with xine, with svn icecast and libshout's example client.
The stream was skeleton x1, theora x1, vorbis x1, kate x4, and played
fine. My copy of vlc was broken at the time, but once it's back on its
feet I'll give it a try with vlc as well.
I didn't think of filtering skeleton streams for those players that do not
grok it - is it possible to tell which players are streaming ? Not sure if
it would be a good idea anyway, if icecast/libshout releases are far
between. Is there any system for players to send the type of things they
can use (eg, Accept: audio/vorbis, or something) ? That could be an
easier way for icecast to know what to send and what not.
