Have You tried FFserver?

       ffserver - FFserver video server

       ffserver [options]

       FFserver is a streaming server for both audio and video. It supports
       several live feeds, streaming from files and time shifting on live
       feeds (you can seek to positions in the past on each live feed, pro-
       vided you specify a big enough feed storage in ffserver.conf).

# pkg_info ffmpeg-2008.07.27_10
