The first thing to check is the error.log, that will log any attempts to
list on the provided YP servers. If YP has not been compiled in then you
should see a log message about that as well.

You can use whichever YP server you want, we list the main ones in the
example files. dir.xiph.org is the icecast directory though.

There is no geographically specific YP afaik, but that doesn't stop you
from setting one up.
