twit.am produces ICY Info: followed by junk, NO ICY in docs

Description

First, I can't find anything about what ICY is or why it is there or how to disable it anywhere in any search on the main mplayer site. The ICY Info: string is in the binary. This is the from the latest lucid ubuntu alpha.

If there is "ICY Info" it should be displayed properly. If this is a hiccup and it is a random bitstream, there should be a way to suppress this.

I have not tried the SVN yet

I connect to twit.am, and I get junk - the following:

I couldn't reproduce, no such junk for me.
You can disable ICY support by using noicyx://twit.am:80/listen , however this server does not support normal HTTP streaming, so you get noise.
No way to suppress only the output.
The better you explain why the output is a problem for you (hopefully beyond "it is ugly") the easier it is to find a good solution.

The characters are non-ascii and looks like junk on my screen, beeps the bell, etc. It doesn't appear as &65xxx, it looks like binary data.

Also, WHERE IS NOICYX DOCUMENTED? ANYWHERE? It is in the manpage saying I can specify it, but it really doesn't say it is http:// but without whatever (why isn't it a --no-icy style option).

I'm not psychic, and would have tried it (I actually did and it seemed to work but I didn't know why).

What is ICY anyway? Google doesn't even help.

No text, no links, no explanation. Just some random magic characters?
