I followed the instructions posted by Karl Heyes, making a dump on 
my linux box running icecast 2.0

So you intend to embed your movie on a web page that opens a PHP 
script that in turn opens a socket, reads input from icecast server and 
streams it to the flash movie?
Wouldn't it be easier to use icecast 1.3 and live peacefully?

I don't know. I only know that I have version 7.0 of the flash plugin in 
both browser.

I don't know for sure because the dump does not report such 
information but I bet your guess is right. Anyway you can find the 
entire dump at the usual place: 

> Do you think I can change the Accept headers like this:
> Accept: */*
> Accept-Language: *
> Accept-Encoding: * (I am not sure for this one)
> Accept-Charset: *

I suppose yes, but I think that at this point some help from the 
development team is needed. I'm sure they'll be alble to find the 
problem at an eyesight. (At least I hope so....)

As for my guess... I think that explorer does something to the data, 
like trying to uncompress it or interpreting in any other way. But this is 
only a guess.
