In my use case, Icecast is configured to allow lot of low-privileged users to mount a single mountpoint (
source is just one of these low-privileged users). These users are assigned to separated web radios. They must not have the Icecast admin password.
So I tried this configuration WITHOUT the admin user and pasword:
But then it stucks on the yellow warning “Obtaining server info…” state without sending the stream to Icecast.
If I understand correctly, the
admin user in the Icecast streams configuration is only used to fetch statistics. So I expect that the
admin user is completely optional if I just need to set a stream to Icecast. I think that the
admin user is a default and that cannot be disabled, but unsure.
Question: Are you able to use LibreTime without an admin user? If not. Why is this necessary?
Thank you so much for the clarification!
