oh, dear!
Why don't you use directly the icecast output option of vlc?

It would most likely look like this:
vlc -vvv rtsp://CAMERA-IP-ADDRESS:554/mpeg4/media.amp --no-drop-late-frames --no-sout-audio --sout "#transcode{vcodec=theo,acodec=vorb,ab=1,channels=1}:duplicate{dst=std{access=shout,mux=ogg,dst=source:PASSWORDHERE at localhost:8000/stream.ogg}}

DISCLAIMER: I only tried this 'sout' line part briefly, YMMV. 

If your CPU maxes out you might want to add some 'scale=0.5' to the #transcode options. Experiment with the value varying it from 1 to 0.1 to find a suitable value.
