There are plenty of players that will work on Windows and OSX.

Please refer to e.g. the Icecast webpage.

In your specific case playback using Firefox should work too.

HTML5 and <audio> being the keywords.

Thanks you very much. I have installed the module snd_pcm_oss and managed to start ices. Now I have another problem:

The stream can be played in Linux but not in Windows or Mac. ¿Any tip about this?

Thanks again,

I guess, and this is my first question, that the device must be one of

That's an OSS example file you are using, please use the ALSA example file
Quick link to the trunk version of it:

notice that there it uses hw:0,0

Good luck
