Help with mod_mp3 streaming server UNIX
I have recently tried setting up a MP3 server using mod_mp3, but so far have had trouble streaming my files.

If anyone who has had experience setting this up could please share there experiences and httpd.conf directives, that would be great.

<Location /mp3blaster>
MP3Engine On
MP3CastName "My Cool Music Stream"
MP3Genre "Assorted"
MP3 "/path/to/music/directory"
MP3Random On

so then I load "http://localhost/mp3blaster" from iTunes and all is well. very handy to play music across the network to a remote machine hooked up to a BIG stereo.

This still doesn't seem to work for me. Can you post a portion of your HTTPD.CONF or be more specific.
