Does anyone know what meta data to send to send the name of the song to players like XMMS or winamp? I see how to send the station name, but I don't see how to change that between songs... Thanks!
Update: Ahh, I see. I had to add code to send out icy-metaint in the header, and then puncture the stream with that meta data. There is a good description here:

and here at http://ample.sourceforge.net/developers.shtml
New Question Does anyone know how to downsample the MP3 that is being streamed here by the Perl Monkey code? Thanks!
