Shoutcast is a serious piece of server software for internet streaming of audio, which has set the standard for streaming. Icecast is the serious open source competitor which is just as good in quality and superior as open source. To the receiver of a stream, icecast is just an HTTP server. The backend is the interesting part, as Icecast uses the shoutcast protocol to receive audio from a variety of sources such as online radio, microphones or playlists.
