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

Preliminary support for plugins exists.

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