This last statement is incorrect. From the man page:

       -t protocol
              Connect to the server using the streaming  protocol protocol.   Protocol
              should  be  one  of  http, xaudiocast, or icy, depending on whether your
              server is icecast 2, icecast 1, or  shoutcast compatible,  respectively.
              The   default   is  http.   (Shoutcast  would  be  most compatible  but,
              unfortunately, that protocol does not support multiple mount points).

Use the 'http' protocol.
