[icecast] Question

I'm trying to figure out how to use icecast after my provider installs
for my record company web site. My provider is willing to install it so
I can stream my mp3 files. I'm pretty sure that icecast will be good for
what I want but once it is installed by my provider I'm not sure how I
access it.


Right now I just have a link to an MP3 file and it does HTTP transfers
of the music to whoever clicks on it. It is sometimes very slow and
that's why they have offered to put in a streaming server. Do I just
have the plain link to the MP3 file and the server knows how to stream
it. Probably not. What I think happens is that you give a playlist of an
.m3u file. I really don't want a play list so is it OK to just give one
song for instance song1.m3u has the information that plays song1.mp3
through the streaming server.


I hope I don't sound like too much of a novice in this but I am confused
and I thought you would be the best people to ask. Any and all
information you can give me I'd appreciate.
