hi,I did not have any prior experience with broadcasting mp3 stream. I
am really  confused with the working scenario of icecast . 

I have been assuming that "shout" is the one who decode mp3 audio file
and send the stream out to a already started "icecast" server, then
"icecast" server stream the mp3 file to one or several client who is
listening. But at first in my case, after I started icecast on my box,
shout(also on my box) cannot connect to it, always authorization failed.
I have checked the icecast.conf ,i have allowed my localhost's all
access rights. Second, cannot i make icecast audio-on-demand? that's , 
give the client a list, then he choosed which to listen? 

thank you for your help.
