Icecast can handle high bitrate streams.  So can libshout.

Your mileage on ices, shout, and liveice may vary, but if you write code
around libshout, it will work, as I tested libshout with 192kbps files
for days.

if you are using liveice, your problems might be related to processor
usage.  And if you're on a slow machine (read, sub-pentium-2) that might
also be the case with any of the tools.
