Creating a live video stream


I am looking for some info on programs or even perl or php scripts that would be possible of streaming a video file live, I am looking at the possibility of setting up a low budget internet tv station but am unsre of the software to do this, I have done on-demmand streaming before using realproducer to create files but am unsure of how to do it in a way that would push it out live, kind of like a webcam but with pre-recorded footage, I would love to be able to do all of this using linux programs and the website I have is run on a linux computer too.

Thanks

perl or php won't do this, and aren't supposed to be able to at all. you would use a streaming server like ffserver to play video files, and simply embed the reference to the url for that server instance. it's all totally free and all, so don't worry about that, but i'm using ffserver to stream a live usb webcam feed from my house to the net. you might also want to look at vls (or vlc) or mpeg4ip and a few others. you should be able to rely on media plugins on the users browser to play the content.
