Hi all,
I run a CVS version (i dont remember exactly when did i got it )of Ices2/
Icescast2 on a slackware Linux box .

I put this section into the Ices2 conf file :
[...]
<encode>
 <samplerate>22000</samplerate>
 <channels>1</channels>
 <quality>0</quality>
  <managed>1</managed>
      <nominal-bitrate>35000</nominal-bitrate>
      <minimum-bitrate>30000</minimum-bitrate>
      <maximum-bitrate>40000</maximum-bitrate>
</encode>
[...]

Original files are about 128-200 kbps and 44KHz
The problem is that the stream is 90% of the time 42Kbps ( when i listen to it 
over my LAN with xmms )

Is that normal ?

Among that , i would like to know (if you can help me) the lowest bitrate for 
that . I stream Music in mono ( 1 channel ) mode , and want to sample at 
22Khz . i juste want to know what is the lowest bitrate doable ... thank 
you .
And thanks in advance .
