I think it depends on the protocol you are streaming with, eg http,
rtp, rtsp etc.

But to do it you need to set up an m3u file which points to the
stream, and then put the m3u file somewhere the backend can download

There are some clues to streaming from vlc to myth, which includes
clues as to the format of the m3u file and how to associate each
stream with a channel number and xmltvid here:
