[RDD] Darkice

The most reliable way I found was to use JACK, Liquidsoap and Icecast 
then set Live365 to a relay stream pointing to your Icecast.

I do the same for live outside broadcast boxes where having the Riv 
library is handy to cover any performer faffing.

Its not very easy to illustrate by text but the setup is fairly generic:

Rivendell -> JACK -> OUT 1 / 2 -> Mixing Desk

Mixing Desk -> IN 1 / 2 -> JACK -> Liquidsoap -> Icecast ==> Live 365 
via relay stream.

I sometimes use Jamin between liquidsoap and JACK so I can mess with 
compression settings.  I also put rotter on the liquidsoap output to 
archive for legal reasons.

The only trouble with relay is whenever live365 do maintenance they 
usually reset your stream to basic mode which means a trip to their 
webpage to select relay again.
