The Ices config you sent has the wrong port number - 8010 instead of 8000.

I'm guessing you'd have to use either the perl or python script modules in
order to achieve this.

You can use an M3U file, either one of your own or one automatically
generated by icecast.  To make your own, just put the URL in a file ending
in .m3u and place a link to it on your website.  To use icecast's built-in
M3U support, place a link to the desired mount point with a .m3u extension
(e.g.  Note that the M3U support uses the
value of the <hostname> item to generate the URL.  Right now you've got the
host set as so only hosts which can connect to this IP on your
network will be able to make use of the URL in the autogenerated M3U file.
If you want the public to be able to use this feature, set <hostname> to a
hostname or IP address which can be reached from the outside world.
