A much simpler option is to provide a download link to the DirectShow
plugin on your website.  Then Windows Media Player works fine with Ogg

Latest version:

Note to vorbis.com maintainers.  The links on the Windows page are
pointing to ancient non-maintained versions of DirectShow filters (Media
XW and Tobias).  These have problems and should be deleted.

Hello there,

I'm trying to figure out if this could be done, and if so, if it could 
done with 1 IceCast2 servers running 1 config file.

I use the DJ program that's called Traktor DJ Studio 2.6. It has a built 
feature that you can stream LIVE! to an IceCast2 server with it. All the
metadata info from the tracks played and played can be seen in IceCast2 
the media player that the person is using to listen to the stream.

Here is where it gets a bit interest. The DJ can only stream in .ogg 
This is fine if you use a media player that supports .ogg, but 
most users use Windows Media Player.

Ok here is my question.

Is it possible to for Icecast2 to take in (in .ogg format) whatever is
playing from the DJ program and have it stream out as .mp3? and if so 
all the Meta Data be intact or will it not show?

So it's like this:

DJ Program goes to  IceCast2
IceCast takes in that .ogg format from the DJ Program and converts it to
Icecast does stream .ogg format but streams .mp3
User listens to stream in .mp3 format.

I feel that this will increase process power because it has to do 1 
job of converting it to mp3 and stream it. That's it no prob.

If this could be done, could you please send me a complete copy of the
config file and instructions on how to do it?



I already know how to use Icecast2 and have streamed from it before in 

Thanks again
