I tried 50 and that didn’t work.


I increased it to 100, still no go.


I exited the program and then restarted Icecast win32 and restarted the server.


It still doesn’t allow more than 2 sources.

Increase the number from 5 to 50

You will then be able to attach your 5.

1 source may mean more then one connection especially if you have audio and text.

Hi all:


I am working on an Icecast server that is running on windows server 2012.


I edited the config file to raise the source limit from 2 to 5.


I restarted the program and restarted the Icecast server.


The server starts with no issue.


However, the  server still won’t allow more than 2 sources at  a time.


I am specifying different mounts on each source so that doesn’t appear to be the issue.


Do I need to set up specific mount points in the config file to allow more than 2 sources?
