[Icecast] streaming to broadband and modem users and an intro file

Hi Dave,

I think I remember reading how to do intros in the Icecast2 docs:



With my (limited) icecast knowledge I think the easiest thing to do
would be to have a separate "low bandwidth" and "high" bandwidth
mountpoint - everything would be the same except for the bitrate.

I might be wrong, but I doubt you can have a file play on disconnect.
That would be like trying to say 'goodbye' to someone who has already
hung up the phone.

Hope that helps!
