Hi,

I haven't touched sc for at least 2 years (icecast2 is so damn good),
but I think I know what you want.
Icecast2 will automagically respond with an playlist file 
if e.g. a browser is pointed to http://abc.def/yourmount.ogg.m3u .
This means: appending ".m3u" to the mountpoint will give you an valid URL 
you can point a webbrowser to.

This won't work if the stream is not connected.
If you want several streams to appear in this playlistfile you'll have to create this file manually and copy it into the webroot of your Icecast2 Server. Same procedure if you don’t like the automatic filename.

Regards

Thomas
