check that ices is updating the metadata, you can check the icecast logs 
for that, either metadata updating in error log or /admin/metadata in 
access log. You can also check the status page for the titles.

Check that your player (winamp) is requesting the metadata from the server.

The public setting in ices is for advertising the stream on a directory
