Just for people doind a search on this, I've found this for Win2K/XP:

This appears promising for you - open source (also a number of binaries available):

There isn't a binary available for FreeBSD, but as the MacOSX is based on BSD, I'd expect it to compile reasonably cleanly. (It compiles under Red Hat 7.3) after collecting a few addition RPMs!

If you want a commercial server (perhaps a bit expensive?), then try here:

A java solution for MP3s which may be of interest?:

This link includes a number of server(type solutions) - e.g Camserv, but these may not be exactly what you want:

If you want to try the realmedia server, then it is probably worth reading this:
