[Icecast] multiple instances? Updated

The OP seems to be still confused.  SAM Broadcaster supports sending streams directly to Icecast servers, so Icecast does not need to be put in Shoutcast compatibility mode.

He doesn't need to use different port numbers, as mentioned a few times.

The mount points do not need to be defined in the configuration file unless you want different passwords or other unique settings per stream, as mentioned a few times.  You can create as many streams as you like just by connecting an encoder to the server and specifying a different mount point.

This is all you need for the listen-socket...


Hopefully that clears up some confusion for you.

It took us quite a few emails to get to what your setup actually looks like.
So the initial ideas didn't work. Iterating over things is often necessary.

Without further ado and "geek speak" or "trolling", here's what should
work for you:

<location>My Wilderness</location>
<admin>wilderzone.radio at gmail.com</admin>
    <header name="Access-Control-Allow-Origin" value="*"/>
<alias source="/" destination="/status.xsl"/>

I won't bore you with the "tech gibberish". Once you run Icecast with
the above settings, you can:

Point "SAM" or "DNAS" at your server and port 8080 to broadcast to
Point "SAM" or "DNAS" at your server and port 8082 to broadcast to

That's it. It took a while for us all here on the mailing list together
to find all the details necessary, but in the end it is indeed simple.
