Hi. Since previous announce of erlyvideo reanimation, changed a lot.

Currently erlyvideo is capable to stream flv files, mp4 h264/aac files
 (both types with fast seek, available by tricky mechanisms).

RTMPT protocol implemented (badly designed tunneling of RTMP in HTTP).

It can record video/audio from web camera via flash. It is possible to
organize centralized video chat with it.

It can use external MPEG TS stream as a video source, so you can use
vlc as a transcoder filter after your camera to restream live content
to WEB.
Currently, RTSP/RTP is implemented to use Quicktime Broadcaster, but
there are still problems.

Original implementation of AMF format was changed to superior
http://github.com/mujaheed/erlang-amf

Preliminary support for plugins exists.

In tested use cases, erlyvideo seems to be rather stable and leak-proof.
