<div align="left"><br/>
</div>
<div align="left"><font face="Arial"><span style="font-size:10pt">1- loading sounds from other domains does not infringe the Flash security policy. 
Loading other movies or variables or even XML files does, but this is not our case.</span></font></div>
<div align="left"><br/>
</div>
<div align="left"><font face="Arial"><span style="font-size:10pt">2- As a fact flash does not undertand every "bit rate/sample rate" combination.</span></font></div>
<div align="left"><font face="Arial"><span style="font-size:10pt">I cant' find the page where I got this information by now, but I've spent some time 
before finding the right sample rate. Now i'm working with 16 kbps 22.050 Khz and it 
sounds good.</span></font></div>
<div align="left"><br/>
</div>
<div align="left"><font face="Arial"><span style="font-size:10pt">3- MOST IMPORTANT</span></font></div>
<div align="left"><font face="Arial"><span style="font-size:10pt">It all works fine with icecast 1.3, even in embedded mode. Problems arise with 
icecast 2.0. Something MUST have changed in the way icecast broadcasts audio 
streams between the two versions.</span></font></div>

<div align="left"><font face="Arial"><span style="font-size:10pt">---> http://www.sardegnaoggi.it/downloads/myplayer.zip&#160; <----</span></font></div>
<div align="left"><font face="Arial"><span style="font-size:10pt">Here you can download a little player (4Kb) embedded on a web page. You can use it 
to listen to KSL radio (hope Kerry doesn't mind) which is running an icecast 1.3 
server.</span></font></div>
<div align="left"><br/>
</div>
<div align="left"><font face="Arial"><span style="font-size:10pt">Please note that, when run in stand-alone mode, flash can't return the amount of 
downloaded bytes, even if the stream plays well. Maybe this is an hint on what's 
going wrong, but not for me.</span></font></div>
