[Icecast] Icecast on my website

No flash player can fetch the embedded metadata due to security
restrictions concerning non-standard request headers which is required in
order to get the embedded metadata. A patch for ice cast to allow this
however is quite possible, perhaps a config directive that tells icecast
not to wait for the specific request header and send the embedded metadata
regardless of the icy-metadata header will be a nice option.
In JavaScript it should be quite possible though.
Also, as for “not all browsers support the icy http streaming protocol.”
Never had any troubles playing icecast streams in any browser, it really
depend on the browsers audio encoding support rather then the “protocol”
which is plain http/s.
