There is a tutorial on how this could work on the crtmpserver web site.

It's not clear how ffmpeg is launched for a specific file from the web interaction, but this certainly seems like a viable alternative to XBMC, which is overkill for just playing videos on a tablet served via PiBox.

Tested crtmpserver serving static flv (Big Buck Bunny) from the Pi to a browser on another host. Worked well except for audio, which seemed to skip a bit. Video played cleanly.

I need to get RM #220 done before I can work on this because the web pages have to launch ffmpeg manually for whatever file/device I'm going to stream.

This issue is effectively resolved with the implementation of the following components:
  1. piboxd
  2. monkey
  3. crtmpserver
  4. piboxwww

RM #222 is tracking final testing of streaming of the webcam. Therefore this issue can be closed.
