all mount specific admin requests (like metadata updating) require either 
the admin password or the defined source password for that mount.  So in 
this case, you can either pass in the admin password or your source 
specific password.  In the case of StreamTranscoder and Oddcast, it uses 
the source specific mountpoint.
