I don't think it is the right thread to discuss any streaming
possibilities for the iphone, at least it is not the purpose i wrote to
this list.
I would like to give the mythbackend the ability to stream livetv (and
later recordings) over my internet connection. To do this, i need to
transcode the stream. I don't want to care too much about the client for
now. Especially not about the iphone as i have Windows, Linux and Win.
Mobile clients and i know it will work on them (Oh, i love this
sentence.. it somehow fits in every discussion about the iphone ;) ).
As soon as the transcoding works, we could implement an http server and
use the user-agent to decide on the format to stream. But for now i'm
working on the transcoding and if someone has some information about the
libmythavformat and libmythavcodec that would be great :)
