Is anybody working on this, or should I just on the dev-list and throw
in the suggestion? If Icecast were to implement this, then Realaudio
server would have very little in terms of most usage over Icecast. It
would easily allow a large library of audio to be accessible, but not
downloadable, for many people, with no sideeffects or problems.
For example, it is difficult and not always reliable to seek in a Vorbis
stream when using HTTP-push (is that what it is when you just download
it and listen to it via Winamp - pseudo-streaming?)
