Thanks for the description, that's help a lot. I've now got it saving
valid Ogg files from the live stream.

Now, is there a handy way of forcing a keyframe to be the first packet
in a page? Since I'm caching at the page level the created files tend to
start on an intra-frame. Makes for a nice green mess at the start :)

Oddly enough I've noticed that Icecast (at least the version I have)
doesn't seem to handle this either.

That would be handy! I've not seem anything on libogg2, would using it
require much work?
