> I posted the other day with a question about a player that mysteriously quits playing the icecast stream. I believe the problem is related to the icecast stream for two reasons. 1) Because it quits on more than one different player (Winamp 5 and Foobar2000) and 2) Because I used to use shoutcast with Winamp 2 and never had this problem. Anyway, I tried to get as much information about the problem as possible, so I turned on logging (at loglevel 3) and got a log of the period when the player stops playing. I have looked at the logs myself and don't believe they will be much help, however I have increased the loglevel to 4 so that the next set of logs I get will be more detailed. Below is a list of my logs and config files. It goes in this order - access.log, error.log, ices.log, ices config file and icecast config file. Any help would be appreciated, but again, I will have better logging when the stream stops playing again (probably in about 8 hours or so).

from your description the player is terminating and ices looks to
continue running.  So either the listener disconnects itself or icecast
kicks the listener off.  The error log should indicate which.

The listener being kicked off may just be down to some short-term
stalling issue, if so, specifying an increased queue-size may help
