oggfwd -- pipe an Ogg stream from stdin to an Icecast server
oggfwd [-hp] [-d description] [-g genre] [-n name] [-u URL] address port
The oggfwd utility acts as a minimal source client for Icecast servers.
It reads an Ogg stream from stdin and forwards it to a server specified
on the command line.
The address, port, password and mountpoint arguments are mandatory and
have to be given in that order.
Optional command line parameters
Set the stream description.
Set the stream genre.
-h Print a short usage summay.
Set the stream (i.e. radio) name.
-p Allow the stream to be made public in stream directories.
-u URL Set the stream URL.
oggfwd reacts to the hangup signal, SIGHUP, by printing the amount of
bytes read from stdin to stdout at the next given opportunity. How fast
it reacts depends on the stream's current bitrate.
To forward a public Ogg stream with the name ``Test radio'' to an Icecast
server, one would pipe that stream to an oggfwd command line such as
oggfwd -p -n "Test radio" radio.example.com 8000 password /stream.ogg
Encode an Ogg Vorbis stream, dump it to disk and stream it at the same
oggenc - < input.wav | tee streamdump.ogg \
| oggfwd radio.example.com 8000 password /stream.ogg

Since the password to the Icecast server is given in clear text on the
command line, other (local) users will probably be able to see it very
