[FFmpeg-devel] [PATCH] Support for SHOUTcast

I recently added support for SHOUTcast headers and metadata to FFmpeg. 
The problem with SHOUTcast is that the metadata are http specific, so I 
had to patch http.c to add a way to register callbacks for metadata 

There are two types of information:

- Metadata. They contain information about what song is currently 
played. Those are usually sent whenever the server goes to the next song 
and are thus inserted inside the http response. Patch 0001 adds support 
for those.

- Headers. The SHOUTcast server usually returns additional headers in 
its http resonse, these headers contain information about the server 
itself: things like the radio name and genre, its url... Patch 0002 adds 
support for those.

Do you think this can go in?
