[icecast] ices2 + stdin + metadata

Hi,

does anybody know some info about posting metadata to ices2 via stdin?
My system is based on a PHP-script wich sends PCM-data from the player
(mpg123 or ogg123) over a pipe to ices2. As i understand the documentation,
metadata is sent as normal clear text within the PCM-data when using stdin.

I tried the following format:
\n
artist=foo\n
title=bar\n
(\n is, of course, a normal unix-linebreak)
In this case, the metadata isn't updated.

When i write exactly this to a file wich is called as metadata by ices2, it
works. However, i don't like to use the file but would like to use stdin. ;)

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Thomas 'Neo' Weber
