thanks for all your responses.
The reason I am interested in realtime streaming is
because I want to see live sport events that don't
broadcast in my area (Americans don't care much for
soccer; sigh). I'm willing to compromise on the
quality if I get the feed in realtime.
The frontend/backend thing sounds like a proper
client/server architecture that does exactly what I'm
looking for. What I'm not sure about is (1) firewall
issues (2) remote control (3) reduce the resolution of
the feed before streaming.
