that's odd, what platform are you running on ? how are you redirecting the
output. ezstream currently uses printf to print to stdout, (this will
change soon as soon as I get a spare minute), so you should be able to use
simple shell redirection..

there is currently not a way to turn off the metadata update. you could
turn it off by removing the call to shout_set_metadata() in ezstream.c,
however that's not something I plan on making configurable...
