I'm interested in setting up a server to which I can send a video stream and then it will re-broadcast it to save my bandwidth (Don't worry, got unlimited on the server).

I haven't been able to find any software for Debian or any other Linux-based system, and I do not have a desktop environment installed on it.

If you are re-broadcasting locally then look up 'multicast'. – Hennes Sep 5 '13 at 18:47

Try the Red5 server or the Adobe Media Server, if you want to go the premium route.

These will allow you to publish and watch streams from a server location.
