Did you want the HTTP Interface?

HTTP stands for HyperText Transport Procotol. It's a application network layer developed in early days of Internet for transmit html and text files. Today it's used for every kind of media, thanks to it's flexibility. VideoLAN can use this protocol for multimedia streaming. It can read a stream from an HTTP server like Apache, or act like a HTTP server dumping multimedia to the network.
