[Icecast] Newby question: MP3 streaming

Got side tracked on other issues.  I also got access to the BUTT (open source/sourceforge) encoder and found where to set the mount point in the encoder.  It was already streaming MP3 and so I set a new mount point with an MP3 extension and that’s all it took to fix it.  Clients go to Icecast using the new path in the URL and all works as it should.  My assumption is that the mount point is defined by the encoder (or source) and not Icecast.

The server is receiving an MP3 stream and apparently /stream.ogg is a default of some sort since I haven’t configured it and it’s not a mount point under /web.  And to make matters more confusing, / stream.ogg is actually streaming MP3.  I would like the mount to be /live.mp3.  How do I do that?
