You can still do this from icecast as icecast can be a rudimentary http
streamer. If you enter the following: http://your.url.com:8000/list.cgi this
will popup a page that will detail some status info about your icecast
server. About half way down, there should be a link pointing you to a
listing of the current mp3 files that are available via http (need to define
this list). Click on this link and you should be presented with a listing of
all mp3 that are available then from there, you merely pick the mp3 that you
want and voila.
To define this list you put the full path to your mp3 directory in your
icecast.conf file. It has been awhile since I set this up, and I forget the
exact option, although static template comes to mind. The icecast manual
does point this out. Send me an email reminding me and I will dig up the
exact entry in the icecast.conf for you.
Hope this helps.
