There are three different ways to get titles from a stream:

1) icecast style title streaming: io/src/tstream.cpp there are fixes in
 CVS that are not out in other source dists. Icecast uses a completely
 different socket connection to transmit metadata.
2) shoutcast style title streaming: io/httpinput/httpinput.cpp. This
 uses embedded metadata. Read WorkerThread at the bottom of the file
3) Pulling id3 tags from streamed files. FreeAmp does not do this. If
 you'd like FreeAmp to do this, please send us a patch.
