Hi Adon,

Thanks for your interest in my project. I'll share everything as soon as I
get something working. I haven't any relevant clue about why it isn't
working for the moment, but I am going to work on that one week more. If I
can't get it working, I think I will use either Icecat1 or regular players
with Icecast2...
Yes, Flash works on MAC and Linux (but not Linux PPC) and is completely
corss platform. Unlike Java the EXACT same code will run on all platforms
because it doesn't depend of any JVM. The bad point is that Flash DOESN'T
support ogg; but as ogg is really a great format (definitely better than
mp3), we might expect ogg to be supported by flash one day.

<p>just to add my (anxious ) support .,

i am currently rewriting my entire radio station/ site . using
PHP/MySQL/Icecast2/ices and stream transc0der -- i've got two
separate script packages . one to handle a live (or local only) broadcast
, it'll read a schedule from the main network or allow you to add your own
. then you can lock for broadcast . ices streams and metadata start
automatically .
.. the second is a media library/ journalling system for the main site .
each page CAN be linked to an archive , and its meant to handle the 15+
radio shows we have . and to manage comments or discussion (ie., a band
that was featured on one show could add info on their upcoming event er
something on the specific show that they were featured on )

, i'm almost finished (and will share when its ready ) . tho i am
currently, still thinking through the mechanics of the non-live
rebroadcast of archives on the main network -- taking it step by step to
keep it solid . (its been a few months now of c0ding ! )

anyh0w; my main objective here is to provide is a mp3 stream-transcoded
mount that mirrors the live or rebroadcast schedule (in ogg format ) .
ALSO, i'm preparing a request channel that will effectively allow users
to listen to ogg archives in mp3 (if they so desire ) . it is a way to
avoid disappointment if they don't know how to get the media player
working , and once they've logged in -- i'll add all the info as to why
to switch to ogg and be demp3'd. but all this has to be behind the scenes
so its one click to listen . . easy.

also, i have been using flash for a header (if they support it ) . and i
would love to be able to have my own flash media player embeded in the
site . .

this would make an outoftheb0x icecast radio station/ site that would work
on macs and so on ., (macs support flash don't they ? either way, the will
support the mp3 streams )

o please , if you are able to get this hot topic active for 2.o !!!
please do !

thanks from canada, eh ! :)
