[Icecast] some help

I can see two problems.

First, you've used as the hostname in the icecast config.  this 
will only work for anyone using the local machine to listen, if you use the 
inbuilt m3u generation.  To illustrate:

Someone calls your server with:


They'll get an m3u file back looking like this:

which won't do them any good since will *always* reach the same 
machine that called it.

The other problem is that you have two encode sections defined.  If your 
intention is to have two streams, then you need two <instance> blocks, 
since ices needs to know where to send each stream.  Also, there's no need 
to define both nominal bitrate and quality, one or the other will do just 

Hope this helps,
