I also tried such things:

lxserv:/mnt/fatbass# tail -f recording.mp3 | /usr/local/icecast/bin/ices -M
stdinpcm -h localhost -p 40044 -P password
Logfile opened
Could not find a valid playlist file.
Ices Exiting...

In this case I try to KEEP READING the mp3 file (which becomes continuously
larger), and pipe it to ices (how should I do this?). But ices isn't nice to
me and keeps asking for a playlist, which doesn't exist in this case.

I'm pulling the hair out of my head, I'm already spending hours on this
simple aspect, reading every man-page I could find, I just can't get it to
