Hi guys ,

I'm using icecast 2.3.1 and all works very well  .

Now I'm reading the icecast documentation for the advanced feature , 
like the intro for a mountpoint.

I set it , and when I connct to the stream I see the intro , but later 
the intro finished (it during about 45 sec) , the real streaming doesn't 

If  i remove the intro tag , the stream works well.

I post my config files , hoping that is usefull.

Big thanks
