Seems things have changed. gnome-vfs as of a long time ago's CVS handles
icecast nicely. Gnome-vfs-1.0.1 needs a patch that you can find here:
I just removed the icecast method from the gnome-vfs-extras. vfscat is
still available for testing your streams.
Please do tell me about streams that do not work correctly with the http
method *with the patch applied*
And now it does support authentication, proxies and even ssl (source only).
Let it rip
PS: ./vfscat http://126.96.36.199:8004 | madplay - is my current
preferred command-line ;)
