I have been to icecast official website www.icecast.org
but it says that it supports ogg-vorbis format only. also i have tried apache::mp3 and many more but they donot work.
let me give some more details abt the filetypes and OS.
i am trying to stream mp3 files. for that i am creating m3u files and providing links to them on my website. Theoritically they must stream but practically , they first download to the temp folder and after that play. Well, this is not streaming!!
i have tried the same thing with real player as well but the same results.
i am using RedHat 9.0 as the OS and am programming the stuff in PHP. any further suggestions from anyone are most welcome.
