I was wondering if there is a javascript player that uses Media Source Extensions to play Icecast streams on modern browsers.

Based on my limited research, the following players do not seem to support Icecast streams:
Aurora.js - Icecast does not support HEAD requests, which Aurora.js seems to require.
Shaka - Needs DASH manifests, cannot play off a simple URL. IANAL but MPEG LA seems to have issued a call for patents on DASH.

Please do not suggest Flash players.
