icecast2 will automatically generate a playlist for you containing
a single entry (pointing at your stream), if you want.
If your stream has mountpoint /stream.ogg, then go to
(obviously, replace localhost with your actual hostname, and change the
port if required).
In a webpage, you can give that URL as a link, your web browser will
then launch the player and the player will play the stream.
