Authenticated Listeners with Icecast (htpasswd)

197 votes

With Icecast servers I wan to set up authenticated listeners on my station. I may find this feature useful if I wanted to implement a listener subscription based model or perhaps just create a privately locked stream for a certain group of people only.

Listener authentication with the "htpasswd" method is a feature of Icecast that allows you to secure any particular stream mount point so that in order to listen the listener must first pass verification via the use of a username and password.
