Yes. See, for example the "testMPEG1or2VideoStreamer" and
"testMPEG1or2AudioVideoStreamer" test programs that are distributed as part
of the "LIVE.COM Streaming Media" source code distribution:
<http://www.live.com/liveMedia/>. (See also
<http://www.live.com/liveMedia/faq.html#liveInput> for information about
how to feed these applications from live MPEG input.)
You can watch the (multicast) stream from these applications using
QuickTime Player, MPlayer, or (my favorite) VLC <http://www.videolan.org/vlc/>.
