Ok, sorry to reply to my own post like this.. but i got it figured out, how to stream with ices using the builtin playlist module.

Now my problem is, however, when i try to reencode with ices, it sounds like garbled junk, well, chaning the bitrate works fine, but if i change the # of channels, or the sampling rate, it sounds terrible, it sounds like a jerky robot, any ideas?

Also, i'm still unsure about the webpage thing.

(http://www.mysite.com:8000/admin is the admin interface, also in that, the links to change the settings, don't work, they say their missing a value or something like that).
