Hello List,

i would like to stream to a network. I am expecting a delay/latency of

I have compiled and install icecast 2.3.1 on OpenSuSE10.1.

I also had a look at:
http://www.6809.org.uk/media/ices2-howto.shtml#config-input-dev (1)
http://lists.xiph.org/pipermail/icecast/2006-February/010340.html (2)
http://www.6809.org.uk/media/run_ices (3)

When i use Link/Way (3) i had to change the binary:
/usr/src/icecast-2.3.1/src/icecast -c live.xml &
#ices live.xml &  --> ices is not a valid binary file. At least i could
not find it anywhere.
linux:/usr/src # ./run_ices.sh -S localhost -P 8000 -p hackme -m oss -q
-1 -o low.ogg test/low.ogg -b 128000 -o high.ogg test/high.ogg -t
FATAL: error parsing config file (live.xml)
root element is not <icecast>

When i try to use Link (2) i get:
linux:/usr/src # icecast -c test.xml
FATAL: error parsing config file (test.xml)
root element is not <icecast>

Could anyone maye send me a config for oss streaming and how to start

Any ideas/hints would be great!!

Thanks. Mario
