Icecast is an open source streaming media project maintained by the creators of the Ogg media format, Xiph.org Foundation. It also refers specifically to the server program which is part of the project.
The Icecast server is capable of streaming content either as Ogg over standard HTTP, or as NSV (as of version 2.2.0) or MP3 over the protocol used by SHOUTcast. It uses external programs, called "source clients", to originate the streams, and the Icecast project includes a source client program known as IceS.
