Just checked out the ffmpeg/ffserver docs. It initially looked like ffserver might work, except I read this:

[FFserver Documentation]

"It can also stream from files, though that is currently broken. Very often, a web server can be used to serve up the files just as well. "

Dunno if the Docs are wrong and it actually works (maybe in current CVS?), also unsure if it will stream the MJPEG/MPEG4 files that MythTV creates... If it can do both, then it's trivial. :) Depending on what video streamer is used, an intermediate step may be needed to reencode the file into different format/bitrate/resolution for the web streaming...wasn't this something that was being integrated into MythTV? (or at least on a wishlist?)
