[Icecast] Ices0 and ShoutCast (and KiSS)

Hi,

The problem the other way around:

IceS -> IceCast -> ShoutCast -> KiSS

(the KiSS then decodes the mp3 to a RAW SPDIF stream, which is received 
by my sourround receiver).

But the constallation is somewhat overkill and slightly unstable, so I would 
prefer just

IceS -> IceCast -> KiSS

But that does not work at all for unknown reasons (since shoutcast can do 
this, and the KiSS is supposed to be shoutcast compatible..)

As a secondary solution, the following could be used:

IceS -> ShoutCast -> KiSS

But here the IceS cannot connect to the ShoutCast - which it should! I 
probably have overlooked something here.. and any guesses are welcome..

Regards

Henrik

Hi!
You can try to do this
KisS->ShoutCast->Icecast2 
         winamp->Icecast2(same)
What do you think about this ?
HsM> I have successfully set up a system with Ices0.4 and IceCast2.20 (and
HsM> Tunez). It plays well using mpg123 or WinAmp.
HsM> 
HsM> But I would like to use also my KiSS DVD player for the stream, and I have
HsM> not been able to do so - It appearently needs 110% SHOUTcast
HsM> compatibility.
HsM> 
HsM> So I tried the IceCast2.3.1 - but it still didn't like the KiSS (or the
HsM> other way around). In stead, I have added a SHOUTcast server as a relay on
HsM> the same machine. The KiSS can connect to this, and the SHOUTcast to
HsM> Icecast in shoutcast mode (and using an alias for the mountpoint).
HsM> 
HsM> But sometimes, primarily at a change of song on the Ices, the SHOUTcast
HsM> stops streaming, and all clients reconnects a few times, and then play on.
HsM> The whole thing does not seem particularly stable. Can this be beacuse of
HsM> bitrate changes?
HsM> 
HsM> To do something about it, I have tried to connect the IceS directly to the
HsM> SHOUTcast server, but I cannot get it to connect (using "icy" protocol and
HsM> so, but still..) Must the mountpoint be "/" or is there other tricks?
HsM> 
HsM> Will it stabilize it more if I re-encode the stream in IceS? I have all
HsM> sorts of (stereo) bitrates, including variable ones.. Re-encoding will
HsM> cost CPU power, so I would rather be without..
HsM> 
HsM> The very best would be to connect the KiSS to the IceCast server, which
HsM> seems very stable when using WinAmp. Does anybody have a clue why this is
HsM> not working? Can I make the IceCast even more shoutcast-compatible?
HsM> 
HsM> Regards
