[icecast] Icecast in Macromedia Flash

Thanks Ralph,

In my case, valid metadata is sent by the php script. However, I noticed
Icecast is more "tolerant" than Shoutcast because it accepts to send the
stream even if no (or wrong) metadata is sent by the client. No metadata
needs to be absolutely "honored" unlike Shoutcast. 

Moreover, when I play the flash animation in standalone mode (what should
not send any metadata), the stream quality is perfect.

the interleaved metadata is only sent by clients requesting it 
(icy-metadata: 1 in the request header) and by default is not sent...if you 
are receieving metadata in a stream that you don't expect to, you'll most 
likely just hear blips in the stream..
