Can you advise something? I know that in theory there are many ways to
implement this, but I am especially interested in personal first-hand
experience, success stories or good white papers. Please no
lmgtfu-type replies. Thanks very much in advance.
You can use videolan / vlc. It allows you to multicast video too. In
September 2011 BSD Magazine you have some examples about that.
I like vlc on Linux/Windows machines. But installing it to a streaming
server is a pain. Even if you disable all options in "make config", it
still tries to build scores of dependencies including some components
of the X Window system. Not nice.
Now I am experimenting with ffmpeg (with ffserver and without) with
