VLC can only stream MPEG Transport Streams when using UDP/RTP. MP3 audio
will thus be encapsulated into an MPEG TS if you stream it over UDP/RTP.
However VLC also supports streaming over HTTP. In this case you can stream
in almost whatever format you want (the development version of vlc
currently support MPEG TS/PS, Ogg, AVI and MP4/MOV when you use HTTP). Some
containers may have a few restrictions though... like the kind of codecs
they can contain.
Hope this helps,
