Thanks for the test stream (*in addition to everything else!* ;)

winamp - the beta4 plugin includes streaming, but it's horribly bad,
just like ogg123.  The entire winamp plugin is scheduled for a rewrite,
or at the very least a severe gutting.  Winamp streaming _does_ work,
but your mileage may vary.

Well, FWIW, I just downloaded the winamp plugin from:

and hit up on your stream.  It pulled the title info (Bjork - New World) but
then locks up.. no sounds at all and I have to kill winamp. (winamp v2.74).
Then after starting winamp back up and connecting to my icecast server
streaming regular ol' mp3 data i get "Server Error: 306 Grow up" at which
point winamp continues to buffer and then will start playing the stream and
the error msg goes away.  Not sure what is going on here but it wasn't doing
that til i added the latest vorbis winamp plugin.
