[icecast] Oddcast suggestion

Hi oddsock

What would be really useful is if your winamp plugin could monitor the
number of listeners on the IceCast2 server and only send the audio when
listeners > 0.  Perhaps the metadata could continue to be sent.  This would
reduce bandwidth requirements substantially when there are several hundred,
perhaps thousands of streams as planned by http://www.rville.com.

It would also be very useful to me as I have a 5gig limit per month on my
DSL which only allows me to broadcast for 14 days continuously at 32kb/s.  I
could extend this considerably.

What do you think?  Any possibility for the future?

Ross Levis.
