[icecast] MP3 MetaData in WMP and RealOne

Hi Everybody,

It works with Peercast because Peercast receives the headers from Icecast2
and sends its own headers back to the client (Winamp, WMP, Real...).
Remember that Peercast is a client AND a server... I guess Peercast doesn't
send back the headers in the same way than Icecast2. Maybe Peercast doesn't
use ICY/X-audiocast.

Talking about Real (v9.0 and 10), I already got the metadata displayed from
Icecast but I didn't check if the server I was listening to was Icecast1 or
Icecast2.

Cheers,

MAX

Maybe it works with WinAmp because peercast is received via a plugin 
that supports this?

http://www.peercast.org/download.php
WinAmp 2.x/5.x:
- Self-extracting installer
- Installs WinAmp plugin client
- Enables peercast:// links
- Free. No adware/spyware

Allan, I assume you have a plugin installed for listening to 
peercast?
