[icecast] Playlist and rant

I get lots of "file not found" and "can't synch".  Im guess characters have
to be escaped in the playlist?   If thats the case, why not run a function
over it that does that for you?  Seems like common sense to me.

Also I have everything set to be rencoded at 128k because I have files at
different bitrates on my playlist.  Also when I use 2 channels in the
config, the stream sounds overdriven when I listen to it in winamp and
really distorted.  Another bug when I am rencoding using lame /w ices is
that sometimes when a track changes to one of a different bitrate (that is
spose to be rencoded?) it sounds too fast or too slow depending on the
bitrate.. then I have to reconnect and it sounds just fine.  I see that the
bitrate has not changed from 128 after I have reconnected though.  Why is
this happening?

Thanks in advance.
