Hi Martin, 

I use a muses which runs on all devices. The JavaScript is hosted by muses but it can be self hosted. I found that this was both the easiest and most cross platform solution. The player is here: www.zaumfm.com 

I'm not sure about where to get your station featured but will keep an eye on this thread for hints

Technically, it's a root server running freebsd and the latest icecast. I had up to several hundred concurrent listeners this year and had the server tested up to 2000 listeners (had to tweak a few kernel parameters to achive that). The icecast server was our least problem, it just ran flawlessly.

The users looking at the team's website with a PC and a standard browser like Firefox, Chrome or IE just click on the link with the proper .m3u-File to listen to our radio, but the users with       smartphones (iPhone & Android) have more problems. There are lots of apps out there that can listen to a .mp3-stream, but most of these apps don't show our server when searching for "Radio Unicorns". I listed our radio on xiph.org, but there have to be more public directories, because no app I checked finds Radio Unicorns when searching for it. There are lots of small radio stations listed in these apps, but I wasn't able to find out where these apps are looking for station listings and how to add our station to it.
