It's Winamp, and naming the mount point with .OGG could be a problem.
We may have to revert to IceS 0.4 because normally the audio stream is
in MP3 format, but when IceS takes over when there is no live
programming, it requires the files be in Ogg Vorbis now. I suspected
this would be a problem for us. I thought that if files were in Ogg
format, IceS would send them to Icecast and Icecast would re-encode
them or otherwise handle them appropriately.
