The latest Win32 Dev version of VLC (0.8.5 test1) has a "shout" module 
included, I don't know about a "real" Icecast
server but it will stream Theora/Vorbis into PeerCast, you can download 
it from the VLC Developer Site nightly builds


I only tried this myself yesterday using a rather complex command line 
and have yet to explore to see if it's
possible to do same with it's inbuilt streaming wizard. You may see the 
results as a test stream on PeerCast in the
next day or so. It also take input and transcodes from Directshow 
video-in drivers ie WinTV etc..
