MiniSAPServer was a lightweight and easy-to-use VideoLAN application that could produce SAP announcements.
It is no longer necessary:

… Remember [that] miniSAPserver should be used to announce the streams sent by VLS;* the streams sent by VLC's stream output can be announced by VLC itself ! …
VideoLAN News - Release: miniSAPserver 0.2.2

* VLS is deprecated, and the same functionality is built into VLC

VLC can listen for SAP announcements with the sap module and announce them with the stream_out_rtp module. Since no wiki page exists yet, options can be found by typing into a command prompt.

"%PROGRAMFILES%\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe" -p stream_out_rtp --advanced --help-verbose | more


/Applications/ -p stream_out_rtp --advanced --help-verbose | less


vlc -p stream_out_rtp --advanced --help-verbose | less
