Basically I want to 'Re-stream' a shoutcast stream.
MP3 stream that is.

Tried searching around but couldn't find a way to do this. (It's an internet radio where only some of my friends get it without lag, so they could restream it.)

I don't know a lot about Shotcast and if you want to stream through that, I don't know what to suggest.

If you are saying that you have a MP3 file and you want to stream that, I would recommend either Windows Media Services off of Windows Server if you have a spare box lying around, or even just using VLC Media Player - it has an excellent built in streamer.

I have no Windows Server atm, nor Windows media player (thats the first thing I remove after a fresh install). I tried VNC but I can't find the option if I start listening to the stream I want to restream. oO – Shiki Dec 25 '10 at 20:46
Forget what I said: Copying the URL into stream just works fine. Thanks! – Shiki Dec 25 '10 at 20:52
