Oddcast DSP v3

> Is your plugin actually connnecting to Icecast?

Yes, Oddcast tells me it's broadcasting test.m3u at ~32kb (I set it
this slow) and
Icecast sees this connection.  It also sees when others connect, but
all attempts
result in Error 404

They are typing http://myWANipaddress:portchosenforOddcast/test.m3u

This shows Oddcast connecting to Icecast, starting the YP thread, and
my futile attempts to have people connect.  I can broadcast seemingly
fine until they attempt a connection, and then my Winamp skips and
slows down, while they get a 404 error, and my Winamp continues to
skip until I disconnect Oddcast from Icecast.

My computer specs:

Windows 2000 Professional
Intel Celeron 766mhz
30 Gig HD
319mb Ram

I've noticed that also whenever anyone attempts connecting, my CPU
usage skyrockets.
