Thanks !
changed the format to MP3, am getting the icecast stream now.

Just realized that esound is capturing the microphone input, wanted to 
stream the music being played by itunes (basically something like 
hijacking+streaming the audio). This dosent come under icecast, just 
wondering if u know of anything related.

Well, now that I look at it, example.c is the one assuming that it's 
vorbis.  You may be able to get away with changing line 51 which 
currently reads:

      if (shout_set_format(shout, SHOUT_FORMAT_VORBIS) != 

Note that this is from the 2.0 tarball, there may be newer code, not 
sure. Anyway, editing that line may work, don't know.

Didn't know that nicecast wasn't open source, didn't look that much 
into it.
