This (<input> element) is for ices2 and not ices0.4 which you are using. 
To have multiple streams of the same playlist you should have multiple 
<stream> ... </stream> elements in the config. One for each stream you 
want to send.

Yes, the <playlist> element should be outside the <stream> element. As I 
said above you only need to have multiple <stream> elements.. (since you 
are streaming the same playlist in each "instance").

Hope this solves your problem.
