Icecast2 is designed for HTTP (thus TCP thus unicast) streams. So is the
relay system within Icecast2.
If you want to to relay multicast UDP traffic to Icecast2 you need to
use a source client for that. gstreamer and vlc (nox) comes into mind,
however other source clients may also support this.

Have a nice day!
