[icecast] icecast2 password bug?

there is quite a bit of confusion regarding this bit....

as of a few weeks ago, new funtionality was added to icecast2 to support 
mountpoint-level authentication.  This means that you can now configure 
icecast2 to have a different encoder username and password for each 
mountpoint that you specify in your config file.  These options are 
optional however, most people probably don't need any mountpoint-level 
authentication, just server-level authentication.

erver-level source configuration is set using the following :

         <!-- Sources log in with username 'source' -->

o, try removing your <mount> section(s) of your xml config and put the 
password you define as "source-password" in oddcast.  Also, make sure you 
have selected icecast2 as a server type in oddcast.

it's also worth noting, that the source login protocol with icecast2 has 
gone over some major overhauls, and I've kept up to date with these 
changes, but you need to make sure you are running the latest version of 
each of the plugins (whichever one you use)....The lastest oddcast winamp2 
plugin works with the latest icecast2 win32 binary on my site.  Similarly, 
the latest oddcast v2 (next gen oddcast) winamp3, foobar2000, and xmms 
plugin also work with the latest icecast2 win32 binary.

also, none of the oddcast plugins currently support sending a source 
username other than "source", so if you want to use a mount-level source 
user/password, make sure you specify "source" as the user, otherwise it 
won't connect.
