Actually you can, here's an example:

vlc #some-input-statement# --sout="#transcode{vcodec=theo,vb=1000,scale=0.5,acodec=vorb,ab=96,channels=2}:duplicate{dst=std{access=shout,mux=ogg,dst=source:password at localhost:8000/stream.ogg}}"

Notice that live video encoding needs a _lot_ of horse-power, a LOT!
