   Why can't you use VLS on the server side instead of using mplexer ?

   This would be useless and would only add complexity to the /dev/stdin
method. Under Win32 you'd need a netcat equivalent anyway, so you best
bet would be to code a network input into vlc which would accept a
stream sent by mplexer.
