Thanks for your work on this oddsock.  It's a major feature that's been
missing from the Win32 environment.  I presume you will be offering a Win32
binary on your site at some stage.

Subject: [icecast] new utility - ezstream

<p>> Just wanted to let everyone know that I've released a new streaming
utility
> called (appropriately enough) ezstream.
>
> ezstream will read in mp3/vorbis files and send them (without reencoding)
> to an icecast2 server.  It can also take in input from stdin.  We used to
> have a utility like this (called shout) but shout had horrible timing
> issues and didn't work well at all.  This version uses the latest
> libshout2, and also (due to it's simple nature) works as a command line
> utility under both unix and windows.

> I wrote it to give people a nice easy utility for creating mounts that can
> be used as fallbacks (ezstream can be used to send a loop stream of a
> single mp3 or vorbis file which can be used as a fallback
mountpoint)...and
> since it doesn't do reencoding it can be run on the server without much
CPU
> time requirements.
