Hello, please don't waste your time for me on that, 'cause actually we found out that this server implementation has many other issues, and we adapted a self-mantained streaming server (distreamer) to work with OGG streams and ICY metadata together.

Now, the result is really good, except for a small issue: the metadata update isn't as fast and precise as with other media formats.
We put a timestamp on the end of the title and we use it on the other end to align playback between different locations and some other stuff.

If you try to play in Winamp http://vps.radioduepuntozero.it:7010/test.aac you can see the metadata is correctly updating (about) once per second, while playing the OPUS test stream at http://vps.radioduepuntozero.it:7000/test.opus the update doesn't have the same precision.

I know it's an uncommon use case, but if you could fix that we'd be finally ready to switch to OPUS on some internal streams and it would be a huge quality improvement

Thanks!
