Problem with playing old m3u files returned by the icecast streams page
I am using PPP dialup with dynamic IP assignment. I usually open the m3u files returned on the streams page on the icecast homepage, in an editor and copy the http://xxxx string to xmms for example. I noticed that if I try to play that stream later, after some days, it does not work at all, until I re-download the m3u file from icecasts homepage, with exactly the same link. I did a trace using ethereal, and it appears that the TCP stream is receiving duplicate ACKs, and tears down pretty quick.
I was thinking that maybe you have some logic on your servers that can cause this problem?
