I'm not sure exactly what it is you want to do. You say you want several
genre-based mountpoints, but you then want to randomly switch between them.
Wouldn't it be easier to just have one stream of files randomly selected
from the various genres? Or maybe I'm missing something?
To set up various mountpoints (as you asked), you'll need a source client
to stream the data to icecast, one instance per mountpoint. If your files
are encoded as you want, you could probably use ezstream to do this, as
it's resource usage is pretty low and it runs on Windows. Just configure
multiple ezstream instances, one per genre, and you should be good to go.
You can get ezstream from http://www.icecast.org/ezstream.php
