icecast and darkice are the tools I use for streaming and broadcasting.
Both have fairly good documentation. Icecast is used by professional
broadcasting stations (e.g., Tilos Radio Budapest http://www.tilos.hu,
see http://stream.tilos.hu for the icecast web interface).
darkice is a tool which can stream from your soundcard (ALSA, OSS or
jack) to an icecast server. It can encode to ogg or mp3 (mp3 depends on
mp3 encoder libs, which are not available on all distros). Both tools
work very well and robust.
Be aware that the network load of the relay server (icecast) is stream
bandwidth times number of listeners.
