The new FLV enabled Icecast (KH branch) has a snag with CentOS. Use the special make command as shown below.
wget http://www.icecast.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/flv/icecast-2.3.2-kh23-flv.tar.gz tar -zxf icecast-2.3.2-kh23-flv.tar.gz cd icecast-2.3.2-kh23-flv ./configure make CFLAGS="-D_XOPEN_SOURCE=600" make install

The link seems to be broken. Could you make the file available, I’d be willing to mirror it in my host then.
KH24 and up includes FLV code. Be sure to thank Karl by making a donation.
Which source client are u suggesting when using flv ?
Any AS3 Examples on how to play and read the cue points and metadata form the broadcasted flv?
You can use any source client you wish. There are no special requirements other than a standard MP3 or AAC/AACp stream. The FLV Icecast server handles the FLV encapsulation.
Thanks Randy for your answer,
how about reading the cue points ?
>I would suggest looking at JWplayer source.
done but not found , the code is quite complex.
Some simple example would be very helpful.
Check this for a working example of extracting metadata:
I considered cue points since I like to have one big audio file which is a DJ Mix.
To be able to display the tracknames I would have to use the cue-points since one audio file would only have one metadata section. Or is that possible to have multiple Metadata in one FLV ?
You can send metadata as often as you like. It’s completely up to the source client.
So….Design your source to read cue points and send new metadata on each cue.
Ok sounds great, but which source client for windows can read cue-points and send them as metadata?
Not sure… but you could try Winamp and install the mp3cue and edcast plugins.
do you know someone who know how to extract the metadata out of the flv stream using actionscript ?
