Hi Max,

That sounds pretty like something in the config of oddcast got wrong.
It seems to be the behaviour that Oddcast won't notify you it got disconnected before you send anything to the server.

Hmm really hard to tell what it was without seeing the logs.
Could you give us the last 20 lines or so from both access.log and error.log for the icecast server?

I had such effects in the past too. In most cases it was plain PEBKAC... ;)
(misspelled passwords, wrong mountpoints, ...)
