Hello Ross-

We have considerable experience with this server, as we also develop for 
the RTSP/RTP portion of Darwin.

We have also had several problems with this implementation of Icecast1, 
especially with live streaming, not to mention that it is basically 
administratively featureless, and not updated.  We have not been able to 
successfully live stream using this server without audio glitches using a 
number of live encoder sources, including those we've developed.

The server only seems to work OK using the built-in playlist function to 
stream MP3 files.

I don't mean to speak for everyone here, but I think the answer is going to 
be to move on and use Icecast2 server.  If anyone has a better answer, I 
too would be interested in it.
