Libshout is Xiph's streaming library.  I've not done any development with 
it, so can't comment on the documentation, but the relatively small number 
of API queries on this list would suggest that it mostly tends to work for 
those who use it.

There is a C library, plus bindings for python, perl, ruby, ocaml and java. 
There's also another python interface called shoutpy, which also provides a 
C++ interface.

all of these are available from the Icecast download page at 

Hope this helps.
