btw, do you plan on releasing your work at any point?
There are several problems with this method. First is that it's not a direct stream from your server, but a php proxy - so unless you have apache running on the same server as your shoutcast server, it's additional bandwidth you have to pay for. Second, it works on the iPhone by appearing to be a file, so it's stored to the iPhone - this might be a DMCA violation if you're streaming from the US. Also, since it's playing in the video screen for the iPhone, there's no stream information such as artist and title information - and it's not graceful about starting and stopping streams. I'm hoping the next batch of updates for the iPhone will introduce software that solves this problem instead of using a pretty ugly hack to make things work.
