If you don't mind the transcoding aspect (ie if source material is high
bitrate) and you have a soundcard then use xmms as you would normally
and set capture on PCM, wav or mix (depending on the soundcard settings)
in the mixer and encode with ices2 (for ogg) or darkice (for mp3) using
live input for sending to icecast.
