VLC...

You can use, among others, VLC to stream video over a network. If you post more details of what you want to do, you should receive more of an answer about what is possible..

Yours...

As long as the material is yours, that is you own the rights or have copy-write permission, you can legally stream content. Otherwise, you may well attract the unwanted attention of the owners of the copy-rights and the law.

Those music videos are not simply yours, nor is what you receive as televised content, you just have rights to view them. You should be able legally to stream content from one part of your house to another, but not to a neighbor or friends.

So is there any software to do this? Let's say I have a set of video recordings of my boys and I would like to video streaming to my parents located in Taiwan and family members in China or friends in Central America. What is the software I can use so that I don't need to mail them the actual video recordings?
