[Debconf-video] howto setup video relays for debconf6


just in time, we set up the streaming from debconf6. Hopefully it will work 
tomorrow and the following week... ;-)

You need to install icecast2, we provide icecast2 backports for sarge for i386 
and amd64 at http://layer-acht.org/dc6video/ - please tell us if you need 
other archs.

Attached are two files, the file icecast2 needs to be copied to /etc/default/, 
the file icecast.xml needs to be copied to /etc/icecast2/ - then you can just 
start icecast2 by running "/etc/init.d/icecast2 start". 

You need to open your firewall on port 8000 incoming and outgoing _TCP_.

Then please send us a reply "ok", otherwise your IP will not be added to 
*.video.debconf.org DNS. Thanks.

The schedule for the talks are availabe at www.debconf.org - have fun watching 
us in Oaxtepec :-) (If everything works... :)

        <!-- If enabled, this will provide a burst of data when a client 
             first connects, thereby significantly reducing the startup 
             time for listeners that do substantial buffering. However,
             it also significantly increases latency between the source
             client and listening client.  For low-latency setups, you
             might want to disable this. -->

        <!-- Sources log in with username 'source' -->
        <!-- Relays log in username 'relay' -->

        <!-- Aliases: treat requests for 'source' path as being for 'dest' path

        <alias source="/foo" dest="/bar"/>
        <!-- Aliases: can also be used for simple redirections as well,
             this example will redirect all requests for http://server:port/ to

        <!-- If logarchive is enabled (1), then when logsize is reached
             the logfile will be moved to [error|access|playlist].log.DATESTAMP,
