[icecast] Icecast in Macromedia Flash

Hi Tivo,

There are no blips when playing an Icecast2 stream in Flash. It used to
occur with flash versions anterior of 6.025. The "chipmunk" output sound
occurs only with some bit rates. 
The fact that Flash doesn't send metadata might be a problem if we want to
publish the ID3 tags sent by the server; but it can be easily solved by
importing them through an XML file. 

Cheers,

MAX

Hey guys,

Earlier in this thread Oddsock said that a player recieving metadata it did 
not expect would most likely produce blips in the output.

Has anyone checked any of these network dumps to see if any metadata is
being 
sent?

A while back I reported difficulty with playing Icecast2 streams through my 
TiVo.  I recently upgraded to Beta 1 and the problem still exists.  I don't 
want to hijack this thread, but I am thinking that the two problems (Flash
and 
TiVo) might be related, if not the same.  For reference, here's a link to my

original issue.
