To be clear, do you mean the icecast_url field in summit.schedule.Room ?
from what I've found so far that just displays a link to some external
place to view the live stream. Valessio is talking about making a nice
looking page that we could link to from there. It will make it easy for
viewers to watch directly in their browsers and provide other nice
stuff. I haven't yet found that kind of functionality in summit. If you
have, please point me at it.

I'm getting decently comfortable with the summit code. So, I can likely
help if we decide to integrate Valessio's work directly into summit.
Just pointing to his creation from the schedule is probably sufficient,
though, and less work.
