I've been looking for a simple Desktop streaming solution via VLC. The only post of concern I could find was http://ifoundthesolution.blogspot.com/2008/02/screencasting-using-vlc.html, which is pretty old, and uses UDP.
I wanted to stream a single screen:// to 9 computers connected on the network. I've been able to do this for normal files, but I'm yet to find a transcoding setting that works for screen:// as well.
GUI solutions are preferred.
