that is of no relevance to icecast itself as it is not meant to handle any sort of file directly (for primary streaming purposes)

sure get any source client that can read mp3 files and encode them into a stream.
We recommend encoding into an ogg/vorbis stream. The encoded stream is independent of the file formats used anyway as reencoding is a necessary step in most source clients.

there should be plenty of howtos on the topic of playlist based source clients feeding icecast.

possible source clients include but are not limited to:
liquidsoap, mpd, ezstream, ...
