Hi, could you please help me with this situation,  the operating system in my computer is Windows 10, and icecast cannot start properly here is my configuration: <icecast>
 <!-- location and admin are two arbitrary strings that are e.g. visible
 on the server info page of the icecast web interface
 (server_version.xsl). -->
 <admin>icemaster at localhost</admin><!-- This is the hostname other people will use to connect to your server.
 It affects mainly the urls generated by Icecast for playlists and yp
 listings. You MUST configure it properly for YP listings to work!
 <hostname>localhost</hostname><!-- IMPORTANT!
 Especially for inexperienced users:
 Start out by ONLY changing all passwords and restarting Icecast.
 For detailed setup instructions please refer to the documentation.
 It's also available here: http://icecast.org/docs/
 <!-- If enabled, this will provide a burst of data when a client 
 first connects, thereby significantly reducing the startup 
 time for listeners that do substantial buffering. However,
 it also significantly increases latency between the source
 client and listening client. For low-latency setups, you
 might want to disable this. -->
 <!-- same as burst-on-connect, but this allows for being more
 specific on how much to burst. Most people won't need to
 change from the default 64k. Applies to all mountpoints -->
 <!-- Sources log in with username 'source' -->
 <!-- Relays log in with username 'relay' -->
 <relay-password>lola14</relay-password><!-- Admin logs in with the username given below -->
 </authentication><!-- set the mountpoint for a shoutcast source to use, the default if not
 specified is /stream but you can change it here if an alternative is
 wanted or an extension is required
 --><!-- Uncomment this if you want directory listings -->
 --><!-- You may have multiple <listener> elements -->
 <!-- <bind-address></bind-address> -->
 <!-- <shoutcast-mount>/stream</shoutcast-mount> -->
 <!-- Global header settings 
 Headers defined here will be returned for every HTTP request to Icecast.The ACAO header makes Icecast public content/API by default
 This will make streams easier embeddable (some HTML5 functionality needs it).
 Also it allows direct access to e.g. /status-json.xsl from other sites.
 If you don't want this, comment out the following line or read up on CORS. 
 <header name="Access-Control-Allow-Origin" value="*" />
 <!-- Relaying
 You don't need this if you only have one server.
 Please refer to the config for a detailed explanation.
 <!--<master-password>hackme</master-password>--><!-- setting this makes all relays on-demand unless overridden, this is
 useful for master relays which do not have <relay> definitions here.
 The default is 0 -->
 <!-- Mountpoints
 Only define <mount> sections if you want to use advanced options,
 like alternative usernames or passwords
 --><!-- Default settings for all mounts that don't have a specific <mount type="normal">.
 <mount type="default">
 <authentication type="url">
 <option name="mount_add" value="http://auth.example.org/stream_start.php"/>
 <header name="foo" value="bar" />
 --><!-- Normal mounts -->
 <mount type="normal">
 <authentication type="htpasswd">
 <option name="filename" value="myauth"/>
 <option name="allow_duplicate_users" value="0"/>
 <header name="Access-Control-Allow-Origin" value="http://webplayer.example.org" />
 <header name="baz" value="quux" />
 <mount type="normal">
 <authentication type="url">
 <option name="mount_add" value="http://myauthserver.net/notify_mount.php"/>
 <option name="mount_remove" value="http://myauthserver.net/notify_mount.php"/>
 <option name="listener_add" value="http://myauthserver.net/notify_listener.php"/>
 <option name="listener_remove" value="http://myauthserver.net/notify_listener.php"/>
 <option name="headers" value="x-pragma,x-token"/>
 <option name="header_prefix" value="ClientHeader."/>
 <adminroot>./admin</adminroot><!-- Aliases: treat requests for 'source' path as being for 'dest' path
 May be made specific to a port or bound address using the "port"
 and "bind-address" attributes.
 <alias source="/foo" destination="/bar"/>
 <!-- Aliases: can also be used for simple redirections as well,
 this example will redirect all requests for http://server:port/ to
 the status page
 <alias source="/" destination="/status.xsl"/>
 <!-- The certificate file needs to contain both public and private part.
 Both should be PEM encoded.
 <!-- <playlistlog>playlist.log</playlistlog> -->
 <loglevel>3</loglevel> <!-- 4 Debug, 3 Info, 2 Warn, 1 Error -->
 <logsize>10000</logsize> <!-- Max size of a logfile -->
 <!-- If logarchive is enabled (1), then when logsize is reached
 the logfile will be moved to [error|access|playlist].log.DATESTAMP,
 otherwise it will be moved to [error|access|playlist].log.old.
 Default is non-archive mode (i.e. overwrite)
 <!-- <logarchive>1</logarchive> -->
</icecast>             So, could you please locate in what line this problem is. "could not create listener socket on port 8000"  Thanks in advance Best regards, Miguel Jean
