Good morning Philipp,
after some extra research, I found this<https://libretime.org/icecast-shoutcast> link which proved very useful. I had to change some mount point settings for the config file of icecast and enable utf 8 encoding in mixxx program. After these two actions, all is shown good! Thank you for your help and patience !

With kind regards,
John

Ok.

Likely but not certainly. Just want to make sure we got everything right
on our side.

Actually I have two more questions:
      * Are the titles displayed correctly on Icecast's status page?
      * Do you have any <mount> block for the relevant mount?


With best regards,
