Hiya Boink,

Thanks for your help. I decided to start a new tread
(i should have done since my first email) so when
people search the list, they can see what this is/was

Future readers, the "icecast2, shout, encryption issue
was discussed on the old tread.

I selected the shout method from the how-to because
it seemed the most simple and it did what i wanted to do
in my test, to play a list of mp3 or ogg files
(abcde generates both types)

A non profit org asked me if i could help with streaming of some
lessons and some traditional music files.  They are ms windows users
i do not a lot about .ogg they know even less. Can .ogg be generated
on an ms windows box? If so with what?

The server is my part this deal, and it is a FreeBSD 4.8-RC (at this point)

In a nutshell, the non-profit needs guidance with their goal
of transmitting  "lessons" and "music". They want to record the
lessons/music as files to then be able to stream them when
they want.

It seems like they can use Winamp on their side to send the stream.
However, since i do not technically support ms windows equipment,
the deal goes that they need to figure out themselves the windows side
of this. If anyone here knows of how-to's or recommend software
that the windows people can use to send the source to the icecast
server, that would help them because i will pass them the information.

It seems clear now that i should be using icecast2 or ices on the
server side. I hope to re-install icecast2 soon on the server. Then
my first goal would be to play a list of of mp3 or ogg files. 

Warm Regards,
