  First : 
      we get a lot of cliking 
      where do you think it come from [lame ?]

first, i suspect some bandwidth problems.
lame is not that CPU-intensive
but you can check this with a 'top' command
( check CPU status ).

to find the bottleneck,
several actions might be taken :

a/ emit your stream towards a machine on your LAN,
do clicks still happen ??

b/ lower mpeg quality until clicks disappear.
especially, lower bitrate and increase quality factor
( higher quality parameters are LOWER quality in fact ).
let's try : "mpeg 8000 8 2 9"
which is the lowest quality.

also, check that pd is running with the -rt flag.

let me know the results of all these actions.


PS : i've never tested shoutcast on the net, only on a LAN.
no noticeable clicks.
