This will not prevent downloading. There is no way to do that easily.
Streaming is not the same as copy protection. Just because you stream
content this does not make it harder at all to download.

To embed files you do not need Icecast. Just use a normal web server
such as apache or nginx and put the files in the webroot somewhere
so that the webserver will server them.

You can than "embed" them like so:

<audio src="https://example.org/patch/to/file.ogg" controls="controls">
The audio element is not supported by your Browser

Even if you would live-stream them, downloading would be just as easy.
