Draft to authenticate sources against mysql

In icecast.xml:

        <authentication type="url">
            <option name="stream_auth"    value="http://server/auth.php?mount=<mountpoint>&pass=<pass>"/>

One script.php to allow all mountpoints and any user/pass could be:

header('icecast-auth-user: 1');

To test it:

gst-launch-0.10 videotestsrc ! "video/x-raw-yuv",width=320,height=240 ! theoraenc quality=6
keyframe-force=6 ! oggmux name=mux ! shout2send ip=server port=8000 password=something mount=test.ogg
