Youve over-complicated my suggestion.
No need to have icecast handle this mechanism, simply have the required
logic at the front-end - the actual player.

As for unique listeners detection and flapping ips as Jack mentioned, this
can be solved by some sort of tokenization mechanism based on local storage
or session.
