What do you mean by "library"? The VLC tree already ahs Apple live
streaming input and output, Microsoft media streaming input and output, a
(disabled) input for RTMP, an output for Apple AirPort and the RTP/RTSP
output. And if you have a problem with large plugins, Qt4, skins2 and Atmo,
MKV (input only!) are damn large as well.

On the other hand, the RTSP input is external through live555, which has
caused more problems than it has solved. Even if there was a library, how
do you integrate correctly with the VLC network API?
