I don't know if flash is downloading but icecast is sending data for 
sure.

<p>I've tried to strip some useful information from the dumps,
Here's the little talk between the client and the server.

Keep in mind that when running in embedded mode flash uses the 
browser to send and receive data. Note that in sucessful tests 
using icecast 1.3 the client is receving different headers. 
maybe one of these is responsible of the failure.

I'll try installing mozilla and downloading the plug-in.
