hey folks,

i'm setting up an archive of mp3s and need to get an on-demand streaming 
solution up.

i've got icecast running well and the streaming is great. the thing is that i 
need to let folks click a link and start listening from the beginning of an 
audio file. seems like i could script something to start up a new stream for 
each user and serve them up a unique url, but that seems a bit clunky. i'm 
curious if someone else has already invented that wheel, if i've missed a 
feature somewhere, or if i should be using something other than icecast.

i've checked the FAQ, mailing list and various help files (icecast, shout) 
but to no avail. any help would be appreciated.
