I'm trying to use mp3cast~ with Icecast 1.
Initially I had a patch where the settings messages ('passwd', 'mountpoint', etc.) for the mp3cast~ were sent when the patch was loaded and the 'connect' and 'disconnect' messages were sent in response to other events. In this setup I got all the expected messages from PD but I couldn't connect to the mp3 streams, my clients just said that Icecast was returning a 404 error.
[mp3cast~]'s output on the pd-window should give you a hint, whether it could connect to the icecast-server or not. if nothing tells you, that connection failed or something like that, i would assume that it could connect correctly and that the problem might be with the connection between client-app and server.
some random possible problems, that come to my mind:
-did you try to connect the client on the right port (e.g. http://yourhost.com:8080/yourstream.mp3 ) ?
-is the port not blocked by a firewall?
I wondered whether perhaps it might help if I sent all the settings messages every time I sent 'connect' so I altered my patch. Now, it tells me that I'm sending a "Bad Password".
the only thing i know, is that before the [connect(-messages all other settings-messages should be sent.
I tried altering the password in the icecast.conf file (which is very confusing and difficult on Debian) but it still doesn't like it. I wanted to tell makepasswd what password I wanted (by default it just makes up random passwords!) so I did this:
$ echo apassword | makepasswd --verbose --crypt --clearfrom=-
hm.... my icecast-server (v2.3.1) has a configuration-file called icecast.xml, where the password is written in plain-text (the file is in xml-format). so no makepasswd and stuff is needed. i don't know if icecast.conf works differently.
which seemed to work. I copied the encrypted version into my icecast.conf file. I guess thats right?
In PD, can you send send messages in any particular order? If so, would it matter what order I sent the 'connect' and 'passwd' messages to mp3cast~?
yes, you can send the messages in a certain order in pd and yes, it DOES matter when sending the settings-messages to [mp3cast~]. first set all settings like passwd, mountpoint, bitrate etc and after this send the [connect blabla.com 8080(-message. you could put all settings-messages in one single message-box, separated by a ',' like for example:
[name streamname, mountpoint yourstream.mp3, icecast2, password yourpasswd, mpeg 44100 128 1 4(
good luck roman
On the other hand, of course, that's probably not the problem anyway. Its more likely that my initial approach is best, I just need to find out why Icecast isn't serving up the mp3 streams...
