I'm having issues with streaming OGG/Vorbis files to Icecast. I am using
Ezsteam to stream a playlist of Ogg files from the command line, but
when there is a track change the stream stops in clients like Clementine
and Windows Media Player. MPV client reports a discontinuity but carries
I have also test using Mixxx to stream as Ogg to the same icecast server
but it has the same issue. Only B.U.T.T. seems to handle track changes well.
This is my mount details from the icecast XML file.
There are no issues with streaming MP3 at all as far as I can see. But
since I need to use EZstream OGG format is my only option.
I'm looking at MPD+ncmpcpp as an alternative (more reading) but I would
like to stick with Ezstream at this point since I have it running.
This track change issue with ogg files seems to be a known issue. But
reading the docs a bit more I wonder if the use of a fallback-mount
setting using an ogg file of 5 secs of silence would fix things?
