Hi,

I have setup Icecast2 and edcast (standalone) on an XPSP3 machine.  The 
basic setup works.  I can speak into a microphone and hear my voice from 
another PC on a LAN.

Now I want to "stream a file" such as an mp3 podcast I made or just a 
song (mp3, acc etc.) or play a CD and don't know what to even search for 
in the mail archives, forum or Google to get help.

I can't seen to get edcast standalone to let me do anything except live 
streaming, via rear mic (or line-in or front mic).  From some research 
(links below), live streaming can be turned off (a big red X), but I 
can't seem to turn it off.  I've already seen import source being a 
CD-Drive etc. vs line-in/microphone.

Can anyone clue me into what to look at next?  Is edcast even the right 
tool for this?


Here are the links I've used to get as far as I am now, along with a PDF 
doc I found (HOWTO_Dedicated_Icecast_Server.pdf)
