Well, I'm also looking for something that can do this for some others I
work with that are limited to a Windows platform. If I am not mistaken,
VLC player uses libavcodec for most, if not all, of its codecs, so it
may not have the most up-to-date libtheora or theora encoding. I had
posted a similar request a short while back, referencing Edcast  as a
great example, but for only Ogg Vorbis audio streaming. Something like
that for video would really open up a lot of opportunities.
Anyway, if I come across anything, I'll let you know. I'm also keen on
knowing what Free/Libre software options are out there for streaming
Theora video from Windows or other platforms.
