NAME

       icecast - MPEG Layer III Streaming Server

SYNOPSIS

       icecast [-P port] [-p passwd] [-l file] [-d dir] [-c cfgfile] [-b]

DESCRIPTION

       This manual page documents briefly the icecast command.  It was written
       for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does
       not have a manual page.

       icecast  is an audio broadcasting system that streams music in the MPEG
       Layer III format.

       The options are as follows:

       -b     Force icecast server into the background

       -c configuration_file
              Use  specified  configuration  file  instead  of   default   one
              (/etc/icecast/icecast.conf)

       -d directory
              Specifies  the  directory  in  which icecast will search for its
              config files. Default path is /etc/icecast

       -l file
              icecast will use the given file to store server logs. Default is
              /var/log/icecast/icecast.log

       -p password
              Specifies the password used to authenticate stream encoders

       -P port
              Specifies  the  port  on  which  the  server  listens for client
              connections (default 8000)
