Oddcast2? Winamp3? If I remember correctly, there's no Oddcast2, and
it's also a Winamp 2.xx plugin - no idea if it works with WA3.

The correct option is <icelogin>, and its usage is not recommended and

The current version of Oddcast DSP lets you choose between
Shoutcast/Icecast/Icecast2. If you leave out <icelogin> in your Icecast2
configuration (the default), you have to tell Oddcast DSP to connect to
an Icecast2 server (that's how to do it right). If you put
<icelogin>1</icelogin> into your icecast.xml, you need to pick "Icecast"
as the server type in Oddcast DSP.

Icecast2 uses http basic auth for authentication, while Icecast1 uses
ICElogin. Icecast2 *does* support the old way with this undocumented
directive, but I'd recommend not to use it.
