Hi, thanks for your reply. So does that then mean that there is no inbuilt mechanism for forcing stream-name to display over mount-name?
I run Liquidsoap with iceacst, and I know Liquidsoap is responsible for the artist and title metadata, but I thought that icecast handled the stream name side of things. Any clarification on this would be helpful.

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,
This can be the way the metadata in the stream is being sent too. IDK
exactly but could have something to do with that. I know that you can write
custom metadata scripts using java and other code to have the stream window
open a certain sized window, image, album, artist, song name, etc, etc
Vielen Dank für deine/Ihre schnelle Rückantwort.
Mit freundlichem Gruß
