You don't say how it doesn't work. Is there anything in the icecast
error log? (besides the spurious "not a speex file" warning?) If you
get a stream but it doesn't play, try downloading a segment with wget
and checking it with oggz-validate. If you can't get a stream through
icecast, try oggz-validate on the output of ffmpeg.

This sort of thing is more-or-less why ffmpeg2theora exists. Any
particular reason you prefer not to use it?
