Please note that this is only true for legacy streams that do not
support metadata (MP3 and AAC). For everything else Icecast uses the
metadata that is part of the used format as by said format's

Access control restrictions/security mechanisms may apply depending on
your version of Icecast and/or configuration.

Also as this is for legacy/unsupported formats only you are on your own
if you use this endpoint. Things might break at any time.

The way to go is letting the encoder and/or source client handle this.
It is there job in the first place.
