[Icecast] Info on how to display <stream-name> instead of <mount-name> in a media player

I apologise if this question has been asked and discussed before. If so, please just refer me to the relevant thread, as I am having a hard time finding the answer.

I have noticed that on most Shoutcast streams that I have listened to using iTunes, the stream-name is displayed above the artist - title information. The artist - title information then rotates with the url of the stream. 

I have noticed that with Icecast, the mount-name is displayed instead of the stream-name. I assume that this behaviour is by design, but that it can be overridden. I am wondering how to do this.

I run two seperate streams on one instance of icecast, so, in my icecast.xml, I have set these parameters for both mounts.

<mount type="normal">

Any guidance will be greatly appreciated.
