For existing players to work with that stream source, it must follow
some simple rules in what it sends, icecast just follows those.  It
could be possible that a certain streaming product could implement a
completely different protocol requiring a specific player to work and
that could prevent icecast from relaying it, however I don't see any
particular issue like that showing up.
