Thanks Karl-

Setting the burst-size to 0 does indeed disable Burst-on-Connect.

FYI:  I have verified that disabling Burst-on-Connect allows VLC Player to 
play Icecast2 streams.
I am notifying the VLC developers of this, so hopefully they can support 
Burst-on-Connect Icecast2 streams.  SHOUTcast burst seems to work just 
fine, so maybe it won't be such a big problem to fix.  Any other 
information on this might be helpful for me to pass on to the VLC 
developers, if available.

What is the purpose of <burst-on-connect>, if <burst-size> overrides and 
actually enables/disables?

Thanks again.
