Icecast was switched to https, now MPD won't connect

Post by LexPendragon » February 24th, 2019, 7:07 am

I have had MPD running successfully using the shout plugin for a long time, until I switched Icecast to https. Icecast runs normally, but MPD now gives me an error when it tries to play:

exception: nested: problem opening connection to shout server QuarteredCircle.net:23005: Socket error

If I turn SSL off on Icecast, there are no errors and it plays.

I downloaded and rebuilt from source so that I was up to date.

Code: Select all

> mpd --version

Could anyone tell me what I would need to do to get it to to output to an SSL enabled Icecast receiver?

The error message "Socket error" was returned by libshout to MPD. I don't know what it means; you may better ask the libshout project for help.
