Streaming MP3 with Virtual DJ to Icecast Servers

Several users have experienced problems correctly configuring Virtual DJ for use with Icecast Servers, particularly when streaming in MP3 format.

After investigating further into this issue, we have managed to get this working, however it requires manual changes to the Icecast Servers configuration file to put a special Icecast port into 'Shoutcast Compatibility Mode'.

These settings do work fine, however they get overwritten by the control panel whenever you update the configuration which subsequently would be a problem for us to maintain.

If any Icecast users still wish to use Virtual DJ, we would recommend switching over to a Shoutcast Server or await a fix in future updates for Virtual DJ.

We have recently put together a guide for an alternative solution to this issue:
