[icecast] streaming in stead of downloading

You need to make a .pls or .m3u file with the URL to the stream in it and
link that from your website.  M3U files just have the URL to your stream in
them, for example:


Just put this single line in a .M3U file, and then link to it from your
website like so:

<A HREF="yourstream.m3u">Click here to listen</A>

PLS files are a bit more complicated and look like this:

Title1=Your stream title

Again, you just link to a file like this as shown above.

Also note that icecast2 has the built-in ability to auto-generate .M3U
files for the streams it serves.  Simply link to
http://server:port/yourstream.ogg.m3u and, providing the hostname element
is set correctly  in the config file, an M3U file will be returned with the
specified stream.
