    13FFmpeg 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, or alternatively directly to a multicast destination. 
    24Servers which can receive from FFmpeg (to restream) include [http://ffmpeg.org/ffserver.html ffserver] (linux only, though with cygwin it might work), or [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wowza_Media_Server Wowza Media Server], or [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adobe_Flash_Media_Server Flash Media Server]. Even [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VLC_media_player VLC] can pick up the stream from ffmpeg, then redistribute it, acting as a server. Since FFmpeg is at times more efficient than VLC at doing the raw encoding, this can be a useful option compared to doing both transcoding and streaming in VLC.
