Icecast is a streaming media server based on the MP3 audio codec. It will stream MP3s to virtually anything that will play MP3s, including XMMS, mpg123, Sonique, WinAMP, RealPlayer, Windows Media Player, Ultraplayer, C3, and others. It was started as a shoutcast replacement, and is almost entirely ShoutCast compatible. Icecast's advantages over Shoutcast include: it uses less cpu and memory resources, you can have several streams per server, you can use multiple directory servers, administration is simple through either telnet, console, or the WWW interface.
