This tip is for that kind of person who loves command lines and so on !! ;-)

You'll need ffmpeg and netcat. It's important to notice that you'll
need netcat on the device also. Get it here: Netcat for maemo.

Then you just need to run something like this on your computer:

    * ffmpeg (…n800 best options…) | nc 5000

and on the device:

    * nc -l -p 5000 | mplayer -

Here you have your easy streaming solution. :-)

PS: remember to execute the client first (the one that is being run on
the device) because this is actually the server of the connection.

This is a solution for that guys that asked me for a simpler solution
to avoid the install of vlc.

It works great for another devices but right now I was not able to
test on an n800. if someone could report if it works or bugs/other
stuff it would be great! =)

Best regards!
