    1 FFmpeg can basically stream through one of two ways:  It either streams to a some "other server", which restreams for it, or it can stream via UDP directly to some destination host. 
    2 Servers which can receive from ffmpeg (to restream) include ffserver (linux only, though cygwin might work), or wowza, or flash media server.  Even VLC can pick up the stream, then redistribute it.  Since ffmpeg is sometimes more efficient than VLC at doing the raw encoding, this can be a useful option compared to doing it all in VLC.
