I took a look. Annoying registration process just to get to see this...
So you're streaming AAC to muses. I have no idea if Muses supports
metadata on AAC. I know it works just fine for Ogg/Vorbis streams (if
you select a Muses skin that supports meta data, like "Simple Blue" and
enable java-script callbacks).

Seeing, that you are using a hosted service and not hosting your own
Icecast, I'm not sure how well that will work for you. But that's
something you need to check with your service provider.

That's probably out for repair for still a long while. Good problem
descriptions help me avoid to feel that it's missing though.
