Sources can't connect to my server

I have IceCast 2.3.1 running on Window XP SP3 as a windows service.

My computer is behind a d-link router, and the router is configured to 
pass through to port 8000 on my computer.

On the same computer I am running WinAmp with an oddcast dsp and 
streaming work fine, people beyond my router can listen no problem.

I also have a laptop running Windows Vista SP2 with WinAmp and a Spacial 
dsp, which also streams fine.

The problem is, no source on the other side of my router can connect to 
my server. I can't figure out what the problem could be. Does anyone 
have any ideas?

Cheers, Eric

RDS-enabled icecast streaming

  Hi all,

  I don't know if anyone has tried this before, but I got very good
results injecting the RDS datastream of radio stations into icecast
streams by using the "rdsd" daemon from the rdsd project hosted on
Berlios. It is nice to get the radio station's name, radiotext and
other info within the stream, and it is actually really simple to do!

  I have put my notes together at https://www.lafargue.name/article2773.html

  Let me know if you find this interesting!

Best regards,

Ed

Regardless of the issues please consider to upgrade to 2.3.2.

That means they can reach your server.

Did you look at the error.log of your server? As you have said TCP 
connections to the icecast server work. So the source is also able to 
reach it (unless misconfigured etc). So unless you are trying to use 
some weird sh*tcast dsp that connects to different port numbers there 
should be entries in the error.log.

Cheers

on the icecast website should be an installer.
I don't know if it installs as a service as I don't use windows a lot 
and haven't installed icecast on a windows for at least half a year.

Shoutcast has some basic stats available at http://server:port/7.html

there are 7 comma-separated values designed to be easily parsed.  I 
understand that Shoutcast's YP server uses it.

Presumably something is assuming that the stream URL is a Shoutcast URL 
when it isn't.

On a related note, I've had to get Icecast to generate 7.html.  I wrote an 
XSL template for this, but I've not found a way to have just one for any 
desired mountpoint, I've had to hard-code the desired mount.

or it was coded so it just tries to query both kinds of servers that 
way. Which is "impolite" at least.
Wonder if it will break if someone generates that output like you do.

You could achieve this by patching icecast and using the logic that is
used to generate the XSPF dynamic playlist I presume.

Falling back on an mp3 file/stream

Hey guys,

I'm looking to figure out how to make icecast fallback to a stream.  I
remember there was an article or post that said something about calling your
stream name something like stream.mp3, and then it falls back to you stream,
but I don't remember exactly the words of it to search on.  

Does anyone remember?

Thanks in advance.
