The stream I'm dealing with is being created in the hardware (by an
mpeg2 encoder) while I'm viewing it. 

The network input model doesn't make sense... I've got the data on the
local machine, ready to display, it's a 200Mhz processor and I don't
need another app slowing me down.  The "html" input looks like a good
choice, but it's not yet working in vlc.

What advantages would running the network server give me?
