I have the DLNA server mediatomb installed on my Mac. What I would like to do now is to capture my Mac's screen and to stream it live through mediatomb.

Is there any software able to do it?

  • AFAIK, MediaTomb only works on files – live streaming isn't intended. MediaTomb uses FIFOs to transcode stuff on the fly, so you could theoretically "pipe" data to the receiving devices. That would mean you'd only have to tell MediaTomb to read from your screen capture file. QuickTime creates a temporary file when you start recording your screen, but you'd have to find out where that is first. – slhck Oct 9 '11 at 15:36
  • But … as you can see, this is a hacky solution. Where do you want to stream it to and why does it need to be DLNA? – slhck Oct 9 '11 at 15:37
  • Need to stream it to an external television which supports DLNA. – Roberto Aloi Oct 9 '11 at 15:44
