Don't use PUT at all. Instead, open a TCP socket connection to the port
that the server is running on, write all of your headers to that
(terminating each one with a CR/LF), send a naked CR/LF to tell Icecast
that your done sending headers and then start writing content.

You may want to check out the libshout library, which can handle most
of the low-level nitty-gritty stuff for you 'auto-magically'.
