Has anyone considered using videolan on the mythtv server side as a
*STREAMING SERVER* for mpeg content? Nothing is listed about NUV input
support, but... I presume it could be added with a little work


A couple of possible intereting uses would be:

1) change mythweb to stream recorded programs via some standard
streaming protocol that doesn't require dsmyth and Windows

2) multicast contents of ringbuffer

3) unicast/multicast of videos to provide streaming video in common
formats to Windows/Mac/Unix clients
