Hey Gustavo,

(I'm not a video person, but I can answer some of the questions)

Don't think we have that yet, but it should be very easy to write, and 
there are quite a few people interested in having this, so you'll get a 
lot of help if you have questions.  It'd be great if you could write a 
plugin that does this.

you need MPEG or a raw format.

this one is one some of us have wanted as well, so again you'll get a lot 
of help for it.

no, there isn't.  There's a good chance though that you would be able to 
integrate one of our plug-ins to send stuff across the network with vlc.

Hope you join us ;-)
