[Icecast] Streaming issue with IOS and Safari

I would guess it has to do with the codec/format of your stream being
incompatible with iOS/Safari. What codec are you using? Have you checked
to see whether iOS/Safari supports it?

Unfortunately there's no 'silver bullet', so to speak, with choosing
codecs that are 100% supported by all browsers on all platforms. You can
provide multiple streams (for instance, one Ogg/Vorbis and another MP3)
that would cover the majority of them - but IMHO the only way to ensure
compatibility is to provide your own app that has support for your
specific stream(s).

As an aside, VLC is an app that supports most codecs fairly well.
