Apple's Darwin runs perfectly just with command-line (and has a Web-GUI, but
that's not necessary for standard operation and configuration), but isn't
compilable on AMD64 (because the programmers didn't think highly of
portability when implementing it, i.e. assuming that a unsigned long is
always 32-bit, and such), and I haven't tested whether it compiles on FreeBSD
at all (all of our deployment boxes of Darwin are Linux-systems). Other than
that, it's a pretty stable and mature streaming solution if you're willing to
stream MP4 over RTSP (which on Windows requires QuickTime; MediaPlayer can't
handle this out of the box).
If you need a precompiled binary Linux-package for i386 (which should run
without much hassle concerning required dependencies), send me a mail.
