Have you tried to change the sleep_ratio value in the icecast.conf file to 0?
I hade to change that to stop the stuttering when streaming 320Kbit/s mp3
over my local 10Mbit LAN.

Im using ices-0.0.1.beta5 and icecast Version 1.3.8.beta2. This is running
on a P2 266 with 64MB RAM under Debian 2.2.

One question also... Do someone have crossfading working with ices/icecast
or is that only possible if you use a plugin to xmms/winamp/whatever and use
that as a source for icecast?
