[icecast] liveice Question

Works just fine - though it might not be documented (seems like this info
was dropped from the sample liveice.cfg file in the later distributions).
Basically, at the end of liveice.cfg add the line:
then define the values that would be different on the 2nd stream, ie:
NAME Scott's 24kb/s stream
PASSWORD (if different than 128k)
For some reason, I've found that it's better to do the higher-bitrate stream
in the main config, & add the lower-bitrate stream. I've gotten 3 streams
to work, but not often or for very long. If I want to do 3 or 4 streams I
use 2 cards.
You'll probably also want to come up with some kind of keepalive. A problem
with that is that liveice can lose connection with the server, and in fact
stop encoding, but still show up as a running process (as will lame). I
have a keepalive that polls the Icecast (or Shoutcast) server as to whether
*it* thinks the stream is connected and then (important) kills all icecast
*and* lame processes and restarts. Seems to work better than anything else
I've come up with, though I'm sure there are more elegant solutions.
