[icecast] alias mount points

Hi everybody,

I think this is a very interesting idea. I would like to share my server
with other DJs by providing them a mountpoint but I would like them to be
able create a login on a webpage with a password. The mountpoint would be
/<login>.ogg or /<login>.mp3 and the password would be the same they chose
on a webpage. I guess the login/pass information would be stored in a DB.

Of course, I wouldn't have to restart the server each time a new DJ is
signing up or is changing his password. Maybe Icecast could read the config
file every hour (to check any change) without restarting.

Is it possible to do? If so, how can I do that?

Thanks in advance,

Macsym

One possibility is using a local relay,  have your listeners connect to
a relay (say /live.ogg) which relays one of the DJs streams.  Then
switching DJs involves moving the relay listener part from one DJ
mountpoint to another.

Whether you use an always connected streaming playlist as a fallback to
use between DJs connecting is up to you.
