Yes I suppose then you'd either need a central external server (like
ffserver--which I still wish somebody would plug into ffmpeg as an
"output format" :)

for me in windows even streaming something as small as a DVD quality
mpeg over udp causes significant artifacts if I use UDP instead of
TCP.  So...you may need to decrease your resolution or the like.  If
you stream to TCP does it work ok?
