I've been attempting to livestream a videofeed.  I want to display a live stream, which could be from a webcam, or live TV, or any other live feed.  I'm developing a website which streams live video and the BlackBery is an integral part of our mobile service.  We currently do rtmp livestreams, which feed to a flash player, as well as RTSP streams which play on RealPlayer on Nokia phones.  I know from the BlackBerry specifications that BlackBerry can take an RTSP stream in 3gp format using H.263 video codec. 


My questions are:


Can this be used to stream a live feed, as opposed to on-demand video files a la youtube? 


If so, how? 


Has anyone successfully done this?  What encoding software, streaming server software, codecs, and protocol did you use?
