Good Morning,
 I have Icecast, Ezstream and Lame all working together to output audio from Asterisk. Currently using .mp3 format from the setup examples but not happy with the audio quality (has a metallic background sound to it). 

 Is there a way to output WAV file audio instead of MP3? I've tried different settings for LAME but it doesn't help. I know that Asterisk has great audio written to the log files, so why can't I use this instead of piping through Lame?

 Secondly, would anyone be willing to share an Icecast/Ezstream XML example that does not require the filename extensions (i.e http://localhost:8000/Filename.mp3)? I would like to just publish the basic URL and port (http://localhost:8000). We used to do this with a Windows Media Server before consolidating on one Linux server.

Thanks for any help.

Tony
