Karl's Ices works with jack, I have it compiled on both Linux and OS X, 
although the OS X build don't perform too well. It only streams vorbis 
right now but it is not impossible for someone who is interested to add 
a mp3 or mp4 encoder as long as they obey the licensing restrictions.

If you absolutely /must/ stream mp3, there's a hack to get ices0.3 to 
transcode a vorbis stream into mp3. Email me if you want it. I'm doing 
it on http://www.fallingforward.net

Remember the mantra though: mp3 bad! vorbis good!
