MP3 streaming applications

MCLab applied MP3 Streaming over IPv6 that was used to measure whether or not QoS was being supported adequately. The MPEG Layer III (MP3) streaming is the preferred choice for most online radio stations.

As shown at http://www.icecast6.remcom.org the MP3 streaming server, can also easily act as a relay for several IPv4 based streaming radio stations. Icecast delivers audio in a live situation, or audio on-demand for archived broadcasts. The administration can be conducted over Telnet or web interface. Many audio players can listen to Icecast streams, as it's been built to remain compatible with Nullsoft Shoutcast. Popular clients such as XMMS or Winamp can also stream audio to an icecast server, using specific plugins. The setup in MCLab is as shown in D4.5B.
