OGG/Vorbis Stream -> sc_trans2

Hi there,

I'm currently switching from shoutcast2 to icecast2 because of several reasons. I am satisfied with shoutcast too, but icecast offers me some features, I need.
But my problem is not, that I'm using icecast. The problem is, that many of the DJs from my radio are using the software Traktor and it's quite inconvenient, because Traktor only supports OGG. So they have to run a local icecast server and then use e.g. Winamp to transcode it to MP3 and stream it to the server.
To make this easier, I want to do the following:
DJ/Playlist -> Icecast -> sc_trans -> different Icecast mounts

This setup was successfull, when streaming with MP3. But when I try to stream and transcode sc_trans, sc_trans just shows me the following message:
2011-01-06 16:01:58 I msg:[MAIN] Broadcast Receiver thread starting
2011-01-06 16:02:00 I msg:[sourceRelay] HTTP/1.0 200 OK
Content-Type: application/ogg
ice-audio-info: ice-samplerate=44100;ice-quality=4,00;ice-channels=2
icy-br:Quality 4,00
Server: Icecast 2.3.2-kh28
Cache-Control: no-cache

2011-01-06 16:02:00 E msg:[sourceRelay] Connection closed by peer
So I searched around the internet and found some entries, that sc_trans doesn't support OGG. But it seems, that sc_trans2 now supports it (see here)?!

Here's my calendar.xml:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<event type="relay"><calendar />
<relay url="http://localhost/main.ogg" priority="1" />
Hope, you can help me or definately tell me, that this setup won't work, so I don't try for nothing

Thanks in advance,

sc_trans v2 only accepts ogg as a local file input which it will then transcode to mp3 / aac (depending upon the config settings) and won't attempt to relay a source whose content-type doesn't match the known list (basically what is reported for mp3 and aac formats).
