Shouted down?  I thought I explained how to do it! ;-)

As I mentioned in IRC, gstreamer would work well as a 1-to-many server,
like above.  It's entirely the wrong solution if you're doing media
serving, even seeking.  If you start adding reconfigurable server-side
filtering. you might be wanting to use gstreamer for obvious reasons.  But
it's not designed to scale to a many-to-many server design.  Not to say it
couldn't, but I'd look elsewhere first (i.e. search google for 'c10k' and
read up).
