[icecast] Problems connecting source

Hi oddsock,

I tested SAM2 in the past, but it's more a DJ software. I think
Winamp/Oddcast is better for encoding. Anyway, I don't know where I get
these problems from. I can connect to the server but when I start playing
something, it disconnects instantly. It happens very often now, but it seems
to happen only on one computer... It might be the Remote Desktop Protocol
audio drivers that are influencing (I often connect remotely to this
computer).

Also, are there scripts available that start Winamp/Oddcast and connect to
the Icecast server at Windows startup? With Windows' scheduled tasks, I can
only start Winamp/Oddcast but I can't connect to the server automatically.

Thanks for your answer,

MAX

the only other windows source client that supports icecast2 that I know of 
is SAM2 (from audiorealm)...However, as far as reliability, Oddcast is 
about as reliable as it gets....And I'm not just saying that because 
hundreds of stations use it to broadcast, and that almost the entire 
peercast network uses it to broadcast, but only because I wrote it. :)
