[linux-audio-dev] Jack compatible LAME streamers (oddcast, ices2, darkice?)

I've been trying to get oddcast to work the past couple days, but keep 
running into this problem

ringbuffer full, tried to write 4096, but wrote 0
its usually in response to something distracting the processor for a 
second, like dragging a window across the screen. Have tried on a 1.5ghz 
ppc processor and 700mhz pIII and problem persists. Have searched for 
other users reporting similar problems, and found one hint on the 
oddsock site

.... but unfortunately their site is in a period of transition, plug 
above line into google and you'll find a couple similar complaints. 
Apparently, the code for oddsock was scrapped from ices2-jack, which 
would explain why I have no problems when trying to do this with Ogg, 
but maybe Ogg is less processor intensive? I'm only having problems when 
trying to encode with LAME.

If anybody has any ideas, I would love to get this working for our radio 
station. But if not oddcast, does anybody know if there is any other gnu 
mp3 encoders out there (darkice?) that are jack compatible. Seems like 
the darkice guy has been working on livesupport, which I can't wait to 
see in action.
