I don't know if mpeg4 has been tried. The likes of libshout and icecast
could pass mpeg4 straight through but without timing so it would run far
too quickly for streaming.

However with some modifications to something like oggfwd or ezstream you
could get a feed from mplayer to do the timing. Needs checking up on
though to make sure it works well enough.
