I used wget for this. Just try
wget -O /dev/null -q http://YOURSERVER:8000/YOURMOUNT &
and start as many of these as you want. You can stop them with killall wget
Wget makes an ordinary http download (exactly what mpg123 / ogg123 is doing
as well) but doesn't decode the media. The data are put to /dev/null.
