This is regarding the Flash player...

There is nothing special that needs to be coded into your icecast 2.2.0 server to accomplish this.
I've been streaming it thru Flash now for 5 months.  www.krushradio.com  click on the click2listen button.  It will launch my
microsite.

I'm streaming it on a Windows server, and I'm using my own software to drop xml files for the player to read the available streams and the current song playing, for those of you who ask.
