[Icecast] relay mount URL

I’ve been able to stream from a satellite feed, via a SAT>IP server to VLC and also to an IP radio player that supports mp2 file format. However, I cannot use that URL as a relay mount in Icecast:-


which is actually BBC Radio 2 from FreeSAT in the UK.

As I said, this URL works perfectly for players, but Icecast complains on startup:-

	/etc/icecast2/icecast.xml:178: parser error : EntityRef: expecting ';'

It obviously objects to the URL having those ‘=‘ characters in the mount. There’s an error for each one (^ in different place).

Is there any way I can encode this URL as a mount for a relay, or is Icecast unable to deal with a URL like this?
