Streaming from VLC to a Qt App on HTTP Using POT

The latest version of POT (5.3.0-beta1) implements some kind of buffering which makes it also possible to do some streaming. ffmpeg provides what is needed to work on protocols like HTTP. This video is a little demo showing how simple it is to stream from VLC on HTTP, remuxing to mpeg-ts, and decoding/rendering on Raspberry Pi in an accelerated Qt application using POT.
Such feature can be useful when dealing with streams coming from many sources, like an IP camera for instance.
Have fun! Bye ;-)
