I don't know what it is that causes shout not to work for other people.  I
have 12 instances of shout 0.8.0 running for 45 days straight without any
single problem.  All the problems I ever have had with icecast seem to
have been on the client side.  Anyway, even in this setup there is no
difference between the version with shout or with ices.  I can believe
there are people having problems with shout, but for me it works perfect
at the moment.  The people that are actually using the streams in
production haven't complained for two months, so ...

The mp3's are created from 192 kbit mpeg-layer 2 mixes made by a program
of mine which are then fed to mpg123 to go to the sample domain and then
back to lame.  So I'm pretty sure they're ok.

That's one thing I should have mentioned as well : I'm streaming mp3's
lasting 2 hours.  Is it possible that media player can detect this or not
