This is a feature provided by Icecast2 2.5.x which is the current
development version. (Icecast2 2.4.x is in feature-freeze and is only
updated for important and/or security bugs.)

When setting the TLS mode to "auto" Icecast will automagically detect if
a client requests no TLS, TLS via RFC2817, or via RFC2818[0].

Note that the development version is not stable yet, but I think it's
totally worth to have a look at. You can clone the current development
version from git[1].

I would also be happy to hear about your experience.

With best regards,
