There has been something called MythstreamTV in the past although I 
don't know it's current status.  Basically it modified the mythweb pages 
and added a "play" button.  Clicking that button started a VLC process 
on the backend to convert and then stream.  Seems there was a way to set 
what type of conversion and bandwidth one wanted.  You might Google for 
that see what exists.
