I'm after some software that will stream videos over the internet from a home server.

I'm using Vibe Streamer for my music and want something similar for videos. For anyone not familiar with Vibe Streamer you share your music folders through the software then when you log into the front end you can browse the shared folders and play the music that's in them. I want the same setup for my videos, browse then play the selected one. An added bonus would be if the software can down scale the video as it streams it, i know VLC can do this so it's possible.

I know about Orb, but i don't really want software that requires use of somebody elses web server, i would rather it all runs from my server.

Thanks :)
