Some people on this list already know about or are taking part in the  
Locus sonus streamed open microphone project see:  http://locusonus.org

All people running our streaming patch on OSX seem to be having the  
same problem, (see message below) although the amount of time before  
a freeze seems to vary considerably - anywhere between a few hours  
and a few days- , which would seem to indicate some kind of memory  
leak within the oggcast~ object  does anyone have any ideas about this?

The same patch running under ubuntu or dynabolic woks perfectly...

I havn't included the patch with this message since it contains  
access codes to our serveur, however if someone wants it to run tests  
or indeed to take part in this project (We now have a new icecast  
server with unlimited bandwidth and are inviting people to set up  
more streams around the world). please email us : support at locusonus.org
