DTCP and IBB are two different protocols. DTCP uses direct client to
client connections, IBB transfers the data inband with the XML stream.
... and I don't think that you are able to stream MP3s with IBB on any
of the public servers. Karma will prevent you on every public server to
stream music through it.

With a good implementation of HTTP (using GET and PUT) and
helper-servers at the Jabber server you can use HTTP transfers and don't
need to setup a port forward or your own HTTP server. You will just
click on "send file" in your client.
