I agree I have not seen any H264 streaming info for icecast2.

If you are however interested in using ogg/vorbis (Theora) look up Theora
Streaming Studio in the Theora Cookbook and it will give you some info.
Additionally if you wish to script this task you can look up the info on the
three commands TSS wraps, specifically dvgrab/ffmpeg2theora/oggfwd. if your
source file is in a h264 medium you should be able to transcode it to ogg in
this fashion.

If H264 however does exist please correct me as I would like to see any work
done with it for future reference.
