I was the one that mad ethe chnge to support flash clients, and Karl is 
correct, only the content-length was needed to enable it to begin 
working.  I used the following player as a reference 
http://www.sonify.org/home/feature/remixology/026_mp3player/
  .  I'm assuming that all derivative players will use the same mechanism, 
and also I only testing with MP3 (of course because Flash doesn't currently 
support streaming anything but mp3).  If you use the flash player mentioned 
in the artlcle with icecast 2.2 stock, and it still doesnt work, then 
please let us know... :)

oddsock goes back to his vacation :)
