What is this supposed to be?

VNCast is a modified VNC Client that will receive the VNC data, compress them into format such as motion JPEG and multicast them with RTP into the network. Any media player that has RTP protocol support will then be able to receive the compressed data, decode and display it.

see VNCast for more details

How to build

First, on Debian-like distros:

apt-get install liblivemedia-dev libavcodec-dev libavformat-dev libvncserver-dev
apt-get install libswscale-dev

, then:


and perhaps

make install


Well, it builds... and under certain conditions displays "something", or even, while protesting loudly, displays something... very psychedelic...
