Good evening to you too,

From the <ip-address>:8000/server_version.xsl , I get that the installed icecast2 version is 2.4.4.
The source client I am currently is Mixxx version 2.2.4 - for Windows 64bit.
Would you say I should redirect my question to the support team of the Mixxx program ?
If you would like any more info, please feel free to ask. I appreciate your help and patience.

All the best,
John Kadianakis

This totally works fine for me. Can you please provide information about
the source client you use? Also please provide which *exact* version of
Icecast you are using.

The filename is of no relevance here, Icecast does not know about it.
Metadata is fully in the domain of the source client, so the source
client must send correct metadata.
