I may be wrong, but looking at your ffmpeg command, it looks as though you are trying to stream mp3 files.  Ices2 is no longer compatible with mp3 files, and instead has moved to ogg.  For an ices version that handles mp3 files, you will need to compile ices0.4.
Good luck,

 I’ve successfully implemented IceCast on a Raspberry Pi and can access the stream ONLY if I use an ffmpeg statement to start the stream. Unfortunately, the stream is choppy and the sound quality is poor.  I’ve tried using ICES, but I don’t get any sound.

Terminal command that works:
ffmpeg -ac 2 -f alsa -i hw:0,0 -acodec mp3 -ab 48k -ac 2 -content_type audio/mpeg -f mp3 icecast://source:password@ipaddress:port/stream

ICES terminal command that doesn’t work:
ices2 /home/pi/ices-2.0.2/conf/ices-alsa.xml

What am I missing?  Thanks for any help/suggestions.
