Icecast2 streaming
I used Oddcastv3 while on 0.8.3 but it doesn't work with 0.9.3.1 - any suggestions for streaming vorbis to an icecast2 server? (It's really Peercast but it acts as an icecast2 server.)
err... i'm not using windows any more ;)

You can use the Oddcast standalone.

In Oddcast, press Edit after Metadata and tick Grab Metadata from window  title and select the foobar2000 window class by pressing Find Window. If you have foo_winampspam then you can choose the "Winamp" window. Then setup the encoder as you like.

Use Oddcast Standalone and grab the metadata information from foobar's title bar (which in order to do so must be "artist - title").

Beware of artist names with "-" in it, as Icecast interprets the first "-" found it the metadata stream as artist-title separation. For example, "Static-X - Skinnyman" is separated in artist="Static" and title="X - Skinnyman". That's not a foobar problem, but an Icecast "bug".

edit: Damn, just 1 Minute!

Nothing is impossible if you don't need to do it yourself.

I tried it a while ago but don't like it - I run programs such as MSN messenger while streaming, and it uses Wave Out (i.e. it keeps all the new message BLEEPS and other windows sounds).

Oddcast 3.1.14, for foobar 0.9, is out. You can find it here: http://www.oddsock.org/tools/oddcastv3/
I had a little test and it looks like it works pretty fine... good luck!
