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.
