Is there a tool available for Ubuntu that can stream shuffled playlists or folders of videos to my Wowza Server (hosted elsewhere) via RTMP?

I currently have an old iMac streaming videos via screen capture to the Wowza server, but I hope to find something that would allow to me to stream videos using Linux instead.

Liquidsoap has the ability to handle video, but doesn't support RTMP, nor Wowza. As far as I'm aware, VLC doesn't have the ability to stream playlists of videos on shuffle.

Any leads would be wonderful.

ffmpeg supports rtmp as an output protocol. – LordNeckbeard Dec 13 '12 at 20:22
@ymn - have you had experience using ERLYVIDEO before? Looks very interesting but can't my head around the weak documentation. – copyflake Dec 16 '12 at 4:48
