Hi,

It is ashame ( at least for me ) that it is not possible.  I was hoping to
offer source clients with a choice of mp3 or ogg as the push streaming
format. I reencode on the fly between the source client and the listeners
so a change in the source format the clients still would receive a
consistent ogg stream. I also do not pass on the meta data so that would
not be an issue.

Thanks for your feedback.

Cheers,

Warren.
