[Icecast] no sound for client

Thanks everyone,

I didn't name the mountpoint and had to figure it out how to do that. I set
it in the config of the source and now it's working fine but I think I will
also make a named mount in the icecast.xml for it.
Next steps are to auto start icecast on startup Raspberry Pi, provide a
verbal url for easy communication to clients and a fall-back mount for
clients in case the first one gets lost.

I am open to all suggestions and will highly appreciate your advice.

best,
Ron
