Istanbul <> can stream to an icecast
server and encode on the fly as well.  You can also record sound.  So
what you /could/ do is share the session on the powerbook w/ a vnc
server and then run a vnc client fullscreen on the machine that's
capturing the audio and have Istanbul stream that up to the icecast

Seriously, though, I wouldn't want anyone to ruin their evening by
struggling to make such a thing work tonight.  Don't do it.

May also be possible to poll a VNC session for flumotion but again the
benefits don't outweigh the cost.  Just don't do it.
