If you can just point me in the direction

in '/etc/ices/' i have created a directory named stream1 this also happens to be the mount point.  I placed a 'stream1.m3u' file inside the directory. When I try to access http://ip:8000/stream1 via my internet browser it attempts to download 'stream1.mp3' and no player is launched. I have also tried accessing the stream by using http://ip:8000/stream1/stream1.m3u but it gives me a 404 error "The requested file or stream was not found on this server." I have also tried placing the 'stream1.m3u' file in my '/user/share/icecast/static' directory in hopes that it will download then launch a player but still without success. I know I am doing something wrong. Should I enclose my 'ices.conf' and 'icecast.conf' files?
