come on, do a bit more research before posting something like this,
incorrect information causes alot of confusion.

untrue. Icecast2 supports both vorbis AND mp3 streaming equally...There is
no preferential support, although since Xiph is also the owner of ogg
vorbis, we STRONGLY encourage the use of vorbis...but from a technical
standpoint both are very much supported.

most of the major media players (winamp, foobar2k) come with vorbis input
plugins now, so no "special" plugins are needed....Winamp has been bundled
with vorbis support for a while now, and foobar2k always has....
