[icecast] Newbie question - on demand streaming?

Just thinking about migrating from Shoutcast.....  I have a question on how
to make Icecast behave as I have Shoutcast running, and provide "on demand"
streaming via my web server. In other words, currently I have a link on my
webserver such as thus:


....and the user is connected to the Shoutcast server running on port 9000
and streamed the mp3 in the content directory whenever they click on this

What do I need and how do I make Icecast behave the same?  I can find stuff
about broadcasting live streams to the server, but not using it "on
demand".  Just some general pointers to tools and config would be much



Imagine a world with no hypothetical situations....
