exactly to link to an ogg vorbis stream on an icecast server you link it
with http://icecast.server.net/stream.ogg.m3u, which will launch 
in most cases your favorite music player.
how should this be done with ogg theora streams?

real uses ram files, much like m3u just a text file that contains the
url to the stream
quicktime/mp4 often uses sdp, or quicktime files with links to the
quicktime stream/movie itself.
