[icecast] Icecast in Macromedia Flash

Hi everybody,

I just noticed something very important, the flash player is:

-An ActiveX control for Windows (Internet Explorer or AOL)

-A plug-in for Windows (Netscape, Mozilla, CompuServe, or Opera)

-A plug-in for Macintosh (Netscape, Internet Explorer for Macintosh, Safari,
AOL, Opera, or CompuServe)

If you compare these characteristics with our tests results, you will notice
that all plug-ins work and no ActiveX works (they can't import the live
stream). My conclusion is: the problem is not related with IE6 but with the
ActiveX!

The problem might be:

-A security issue related with the ActiveX (and NOT Flash)

-The fact that the ActiveX doesn't send valid headers but the plug-in does.

Is there an ActiveX specialist here?

MAX
