It _is_ streaming, you just aren't accessing it right.

You can't just point your browser to a stream.  The browser will always
download the content, and then pass it off to the helper application.
If that content is a stream, it will just download forever.

You need to create some 'pointer' file, generally an m3u file, that
points to your stream.  The browser downloads the m3u, passes it to your
client, and that starts streaming the real data.
