2 issues to cover.

. kh10 is the latest, although kh11 should be available soon (no
problems reported so far with kh10 though).

. The URL you state above is the shoutcast style of updating metadata,
you'll note the lack of mountpoint, so shoutcast-mount is the mountpoint
that's used.  It's also not clear on why there is an Ogg Vorbis stream
on a shoutcast mountpoint ?

It may be that you are just using the wrong url for updating metadata,
eg

http://servername.com:9876/admin/metadata?mount=/stream.ogg&mode=updinfo&song=a_song_title
