I'm running Icecast 2.2.0 on a Windows 2000 server. I'm using Winamp 
with the SAM encoder plugin to stream an Ogg Vorbis stream (-0.55 
quality stereo) from a remote machine. I'm having two problems.

1. The latest Winamp works great. Whamb on OSX works also (but no 
Title/Artist info shows up). But on other players (Zinf and Audion 
[OS9 and OSX]) it works great for one song. At song change, the 
player stops and I have to reopen the url again. Do I have to add 
some kind of fallback for in between songs for these other players??

2. Icecast keeps shutting down after about an hour. If there are no 
players connected for a period of time does it shut down? Or if the 
YP connection is lost does Icecast shut down?

Thanks in advance!
