So I’ve been at this for a few days with no luck. I am trying to pre-pend my stream with an intro file (mp3).

I’ve saved the mp3 file (for the intro) the same as the stream > in my test right now it is set up stereo, 112kbps, 44100hz.
I can play the file independently in a browser from the webfoot location.
I can play the stream with no problems.
I have modified my icecast.xml to include this


I haven’t changed the default webroot path. My file is in there with permissions 744.

My stream is sent to icecast with Butt. Here is a screenshot.

I have checked my xml config for properly formatted xml.

I used stop/start/reload commands as well as sighup on icecast service.

I am running centos 7.

Any ideas on what I can try next? Don’t want to give up but….

Thanks in advance,
