Are you sure that the user accessing the secondary sound device actually
has rights to access that device?

If that user doesn't, you'll end up streaming silence - resulting in the
problem you're describing.

Your problem is not on the Icecast server, but on the program you use to
stream *towards* the Icecast server. Either permission problems or
your recording device is somehow configured wrong.
