Icecast is a streaming media server which currently supports Ogg (Vorbis and Theora), Opus and WebM audio streams.
MP3 works too, but it is not officially supported due to its non-free nature.

It can be used to create an Internet radio station or a privately-running jukebox and many things inbetween.
It is very versatile in that new formats can be added relatively easily and supports open standards for communication and interaction.

Icecast is distributed under the GNU GPL, version 2.
