Should clarify...Mythtv uses it's own video file format (based on Nupplevideo), using MJPEG/MPEG4 encoding... Need a web video streamer that will support the MythTV format, or a converter to get it into the web streaming format.

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?)
