Interesting idea... I think that rtpsend is broken right now, but being
worked on. the other two do work, I think. They tell me that icecastsend
sends one datastream that is then managed by icecast. udp is per-client,
i think, but the word is that gstreamer isn't optimal for 1 to many
operation. omega_ on IRC just pointed me to something called c10k,
google for it, it's interesting. hope this helps -
