well

when i streamed the station using foobar.. then foobar2000 displayed the metadata correctly...

but at that time.. when i checked out status2.xml, stats.xsl and stats.xml , the metadata is displaced incorrectly.. two songs behind..

i've tested the stream broadcasting using winamp2, foobar200 w/ oddcast dsp plug in.  

you can check out my station at http://ny.icecast.net:8646/play.ogg w/ foobar2000 and .. and then check out http://ny.icecast.net:8646/status2.xsl 

thx

This is almost certainly a problem with the source client, not with icecast. I 
haven't heard of any problems with icecast 'missing' metadata updates. If you 
can provide a reproducible testcase showing icecast doing this incorrectly, I 
can look into it further.
