Please note that PUT will work only with Icecast 2.4.0 or newer.
The only thing, for this to work, you need to set in the Icecast config
is the source-password. Once you've done that and restarted Icecast, you
can use the credentials:
username: source
password: whateveryouset in <source-password>

The stream should then appear on the Icecast status page. In your case

More complicated setups are possible. Please refer to the Icecast
documentation for details:
