Butt isnt a plug in, Butt is its own entity. (I love saying that)
SC_Trans is killing me, not the server...
It works, but the Livewire is pretty awesome as well. Im still experimenting with it, its got a few disadvantages, and a few nicks on Butt's bedpost. But i like them both, I just have been working myself on it more, because I use Icecast, and it was designed for Icecast/linux platforms. So of course I had to work on it a little.
SC has a lot of apps that one up Icecast third party developments, when I see an icecast third party development thats effective, its a miracle and a holiday that should be observed.
The next 6 months are really going to split the streaming servers WAY far. While AOL plans the release of SC2, KarlH has been hinting on the Icecast2 forums about his activities with .flv wraping in the next Icecast release.
I cant wait to see the epic clash of the titans next round of server releases. SHOUTcast has always been awesome because of its ease of use, but if Karl Heyes launches his usual "HTF is he doing that?" special touch on Icecast next trunk, EPIC battle!
