I'm doing something similar with a MythTV add-on I wrote called
MythPodcaster (http://code.google.com/p/mythpodcaster/).  MythPodcaster uses
FFMpeg to  transcode many of my recordings into several output encodings.
Some of those encodings use the Apple HTTP Live Streaming format, which
enables automatic stream switching to adapt to changing bandwidth.
MythPodcaster renders RSS feeds that are easy to browse within Safari on the
iPhone and iPad.
