QuickTime? Player is developed by Apple? and is the default player on any Mac OS system. There is also a version available for Windows. It is a pretty nice player with all the basic funtions for playing and streaming in place. It is very extendible by use of plugins.

A sample of how to stream from v4l source to quicktime player

The command I use is the following:

vlc -vvv --intf dummy v4l:/dev/video0:norm=pal:frequency=37525:size=720x576:channel=0:adev=/dev/sound/audio:audio=0 --sout '#transcode{acodec=mp4a, vcodec=mp4v,vb=2000,ab=128,vt=800000,keyint=80}:rtp{dst=,port=1234, sdp=http:/myserver.dot.com:8082/tv.sdp}'

You need vlc and ffmpeg compiled with faad2 library. I have tested it with vlc-0.7.2 on both side client and server on linux and quicktime player on windows machines.

As usual see vlc howto to know the meaning of each param
