We have a video camera connected to a computer at a remote facility. We'd
like to compress streaming video there, and have it transmit to a server at
our main facility running a reflector, so that we can stream it to the
public over the Internet as a part of our website. Right now we're trying to
use VLC (http://www.videolan.org/vlc /) as the compressor and Darwin
Streaming Server as the reflector, but are having a terrible time making
them talk to each other. Can you recommend a set of software suitable for
what we're trying to do? Any OS is fine.

Thanks.

There is a version of ffmpeg that does that (Linux, but possibly MS windows too).
I had it set up, and it worked, but cannot remember exactly how I did it.
One version worked, the other did not... Maybe newer versions work.
You have a choice of formats, rm wmv ...etc..
Not sure that is a solution in your case.

Try the open source version of the Helix Server and Helix producer  if
you do not mind the video being in the real format.
