[kwlug-disc] UPnP Remote Desktop Server

Yes, getting a PC with a HDMI would be the easy way.  More hardware, cables and 
fans in my living room. I like the idea of broadcasting a live video stream over 
the network.  I think there are some remote TV solutions that must work similar 
to this. 

xvidcap looks like it could be part of the solution.  The mpeg stream created 
would need to be piped into a UPnP server somehow. Doesn't Videolan do something 
like this?

I kept thinking about a solution and remembered xvidcap. Someone else has 
already thought about it. Maybe you want to try it.
