I believe that the proxy.php is a script that can open a connection to the shoutcast stream and forward it on to the Flash app.

The reason for that is that Flash apps can't pull data from other domains unless the domain hosting the data has the domain of the flash app in it's crossdomain.xml

To get around that, the flash app calls the proxy.php, the proxy.php pulls the streams, and then feeds them to the flash app. To the flash app, it looks like the data is coming straight off it's own domain.
