The nulls there are very strange - they shouldn't be possible - but aren't the 
cause of your "problem". In fact, from this, it looks like everything other 
than the logging is working perfectly. You're just asking your client (the 
player, whatever you're using) to play the wrong thing, so it doesn't work. 

The log here suggests that the source (oddcast) is at "/ice.ogg", but your 
client is requesting "/" instead. Try putting in "http://server:port/ice.ogg" 
instead of "http://server:port/".
