I use Emit for this. https://www.emitapp.com/
It does HLS and/or RTSP streaming depending on your client (there are apps
for android, ios, and web) as well as pre-encoding and downloading.
You just point it at your media directory and it goes from there - which
means there is no direct mythtv support. But using mythlink  (
http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Mythlink.pl) makes it pretty close. It is a good
workaround until all the hls stuff in myth finishes getting awesome(r).

Note that it requires yet another piece of software running as a server.
And it is pretty picky about ffmpeg versions. I struggled getting it set up
correctly until I punted and set up a chroot for it and followed the
directions in the readme.
