Well I guess thats not straight-away possible with icecast2. But 
maybe you could try out opening a small php-page as your actual 
"streaming-url" and then send a header("Location: new-url") and 
direct e.g. WinAmp to the streaming-server you want it to stream 
from? But I'm not sure if this works with all players. Anybody tried 
it already?
