That should be no problem at all for Icecast to handle. I know of
instances that have >1000 streams.

It's hard to guess what's going wrong. But I'd suggest to examine the
logs and output for all of the involved applications.
In case of Icecast check error.log and also check if the stream is
listed on the web interface. If it doesn't appear, then it's not
connected (except when 'hidden' was explicitly set).

You say that you have Icecast already running. That would mean, that
those are of no concern to you.

If you don't have Icecast installed, then yes, those are required, but
should be automatically satisfied if you install a distribution package.
Which again would mean, that the above is of no concern to you.
Please refer to this page for further details about installing a
distribution package:

Should you have more questions, please send them to the mailing list.
