[Icecast-dev] Icecast Radio Directory database needed for radio-browser.info

Thank you very much Philipp!

http://dir.xiph.org/ says "Total streams:*18963*" but yp.xml is only 10773 streams:

xmllint yp.xml | grep "server_name" >> streams.txt
cat streams.txt | wc -l


Why is yp.xml 8190 (*18963**-*10773) streams short?
